Forget 50 Cent and Eminem, Ja Rule (aka Jeffrey Atkins) has a new enemy. A Saddle Brook contractor, who claims that Rule stiffed him for $8,000, has taken the issue to court.
The contractor, Joel Tobia, said the Murder Inc rapper delegate him to fix a bad leak at his $3.5 million
After presenting Ja Rule with a $13,000 bill, the 31-year old rapper paid Tobia $5,000 and refused to pay the rest.
Ja’s lawyer contends that “some work was done, and there was a dispute as to whether the work was done properly and whether money is owed.” He added that “the amount in contention is actually $4,000.”
A hearing had been scheduled for this Thursday to determine whether there is probable cause for a criminal complaint.
