A venue owner in Munich has filed for bankruptcy after American rapper Snoop Dogg angered club regulars by failing to turn up for a gig.

Exactly why Snoop Dogg never stepped out onto the stage at the Zenith club on July 17th still isn't clear, reports the Süddeutsche Zeitung.

The rapper has claimed club owner Björn Hellfeld broke the terms of their contract, putting up a quantity of money so small he “wouldn't even bother standing up for it.”

Hellfeld counters that he met all the terms of the contract on time.

Whatever the truth, fans who came to the club to see the legendary rapper weren't best pleased, and a riot almost broke out at the venue.

When it became clear that Snoop wasn't there fans set off fire extinguishers, attacked the sound system and threw their drinks at the stage.

To rub salt into the wounds, on the night he was supposed to perform in Munich, Snoop Dogg was giving a concert in the nearby city of Augsburg – wearing a Bayern Munich football shirt!

And it appears Munich's hip hop fans didn't take the 'diss' lying down.

Hellfeld reports being threatened and insulted in the aftermath, primarily through social media. What's more, hip hop fans stopped turning up to his club, as word of the fiasco spread.

With fans now demanding refunds on their €60 tickets, Hellfeld has filed for bankruptcy.

Revenue at the club dropped so much that he can no longer afford to buy new drinks, Hellfeld's insolvency lawyer stated.

The lawyer is now looking at whether Hellfeld can claim compensation from Snoop Dogg.
