MIAMI – Videos show there was a cash storm at Monday night’s Million Dollar Bowl in downtown Miami -- an event Canes’ Edgerrin James promoted as the “Stripper Bowl” -- but several strippers who were there claim they were underpaid.
Pierre “Pee” Thomas, who co-owns the Atlanta-based Quality Control Music label, released a statement Tuesday in his Instagram story saying the organizers didn’t have contracts with the strippers.
Thomas also said, “we don’t control or make the rules of how many girls dance, who split or payout," or “how much money [gets] stolen.”
Thomas alleged that “a lot of money was thrown between our camp." Cardi B, who was at the event, said she felt “obligated” to throw cash even though many of the dancers were just “standing there like [it was] a concert.”
Cardi B, also known as Belcalis Almánzar, also had a message for those who allegedly stole cash that was meant to pay the strippers at the event.
“A lot of these girls are moms," the rapper and former stripper said in a video she posted on Instagram.
