Lil Nas X and Zedd named in $1M lawsuit over wild 2022 party at Hollywood Hills mansion
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Landlord Daniel Fitzgerald filed a lawsuit against rapper Lil Nas X and DJ Zedd, accusing the two of hosting a wild party at his Hollywood Hills mansion and leaving considerable damage to the property in Los Angeles. The tenants apparently rented the property from Fitzgerald but were specifically told that parties were not permitted on the premises. LNX, Zedd, and the promoters of the party were all personally aware of the aforementioned orders, however, they neglected the orders.
The 'Old Town Road' singer, 23, and the Russian-German DJ, 33, along with sponsors and promoters were named in the legal filing over an April 2022 bash at the legal property of Fitzgerald who owns multiple homes in the area, as per court documents obtained by TMZ. Fitzgerald alleged to the court that the soiree hosted by the tenants was attended by 1,000 people including Lil Nas X and Zedd, whose real names are Montero Lamar Hill and Anton Zaslavski respectively. Both musical artists performed that night.

Lil Nas X and Zedd were paid minimum of $250,000 a piece
Fitzgerald claims that the property suffered physical damage of more than $25,000 with the walls, ceilings, sofas, and chairs still left in need of repair. He also claims to have lost roughly $40,000 worth of income for not being able to rent the property while extensive repairs were made to his home following the wild bash. Fitzgerald also added that the party also bothered the neighbors which brought him into trouble with local authorities. Both Lil Nas X and Zedd were paid a minimum of $250,000 a piece for their performances at the party.
Fitzgerald has filed $1 million lawsuit
Fitzgerald is seeking compensatory and punitive damages of at least $1 million in his suit against the entertainers as well as the sponsors and promoters of the party, according to TMZ.
Lil Nas X, on the other hand, appeared completely unbothered as he was photographed sitting in the front row for Coach during New York Fashion Week. Other attendees included Zoey Deutch, Ice Spice, and Camila Mendes for the label's Fall 2023 Ready To Wear collection show. The singer was also spotted sitting in between Julia Fox and Teyana Taylor when he attended the LaQuan Smith Fall/Winter 2023 show.
