Kodak Black is reportedly losing hundreds of thousands of dollars while in jail. Kodak's missed shows inflict an estimated $50,000 each in wallet damages, TMZ claimed this weekend. By the time Kodak appears in court later this week, he will have either postponed or canceled a total of six shows. Following TMZ's per-show estimate, that means Kodak stands to lose $300,000.
Kodak attended court in Broward County last Tuesday and was arrested for probation violation, XXLfirst reported. Black, according to an arrest warrant, violated the terms of his probation by failing to "remain confined" to his approved residence. Under the terms, Kodak was only allowed to leave the approved residence for one half hour before and after "approved employment" or other pre-approved special activities:
Last August, Kodak was sentenced to a year of house arrest and five years probation after pleading no contest to charges including false imprisonment, fleeing an officer, possession of a firearm by a delinquent, and robbery. The judge also agreed to withhold adjudication, the Sun-Sentinelreported. This agreement means Kodak won't be plagued with a felony conviction, thus avoiding potential complications with future touring plans.
In their updated report on Kodak's probation violation, TMZalso revealed what they claim is the "Tunnel Vision" artist's tour rider. Golden Oreos, Perrier-Jouët, Patron, and a gaming system armed with Madden and NBA 2K titles are alleged requirements for the Kodak Black backstage area. Additionally, Kodak reportedly requires a 10-person dinner at every show.
In a statement to XXLlast week, Atlantic Records said Kodak's lawyers were "working diligently" on the latest development and were hopeful a resolution would be reached soon.
Back in December, Kodak posted bail and was released from jail in South Carolina where he faced an unrelated charge of criminal sexual conduct. According to the Sun-Sentinel, Kodak was accused of sexually assaulting a fan from Columbia at a Comfort Inn and Suites in Florence in February 2016:
After a few minutes, she and Octave went into a separate room by themselves, the woman told police. That's when the attack began, between 11:40 p.m. Feb. 6 and 1:30 a.m. Feb. 7, the report says.
