According to Page Six, Khaled is planning to sue the Billboard Chart for unfairly disqualifying 100,000 sales because they were a part of a bundle with an energy drink.
It is reported that Billboard had initially agreed to include these sales, but later backtracked. A ‘DJ Khaled source’ is quoted as saying: “When Khaled’s team tried to appeal, Billboard refused to budge.”
Page Six have previously reported that Khaled was furious when Tyler beat him to the top spot, with “multiple sources” telling the publication that he threw a tantrum at record label Epic.
“He stormed into Epic with an entourage,” a source said of Khaled. When projections showed his new record looked likely to come in second, they allege that “he was angry and yelling. He threw a temper tantrum,”
In better news for Khaled, he’s just been cast in the forthcoming Bad Boys sequel, alongside Will Smith and Martin Lawrence.
He and Smith also teamed up for a rap-heavy remake of ‘Friend Like Me’ for the soundtrack to Disney’s recent remake of ‘Aladdin’.
