Flo Rida was awarded $82.6 million Wednesday by a jury in Broward County, Fla to hide from him.

The 43-year-old rapper first filed the lawsuit in May 2021, saying the beverage company’s parent company Celsius Holdings Inc. breached previously agreed terms of a deal dating back to 2014, TMZ reported.

A native of Carol City, Fla., real name Tramar Dillard, initially claimed he was owed $30,000 for violating the agreement, but the sum swelled as the company’s fortunes grew.

He told the AP: “Basically, I helped start this business and all we were looking for was some trustworthy people who acted like they were family. And when it comes to today’s success, they just forgot about me.’

Lawyers for the beverage company said its success came after the endorsement deal was struck with the Right Round artist and was due to other factors affecting the deal.

The company has yet to appeal the jury’s verdict.

Flo Rida’s attorney, John Uustal, said the whistle artist was willing to take a 1% interest in the deal he was originally promised, in lieu of the $82.6 million the jury awarded.

Flo Rida “loved the product and it’s been a very successful four-year relationship,” Uustal said. “There were some benchmarks. He was supposed to get stocks when certain things happened. And there was controversy over whether those benchmarks had been met. So that’s what it was about.’

“I’m still an owner of the company,” Dillard said, the AP reported. “And when you’ve basically planted the seed of something successful, you can’t help but have unconditional love.”
