I met Will Lacy in Arkansas, in August 2012.  He first approached me, wanting to financially invest and manage my music career.  Within a few short months, the business relationship was strained exponentially.  Will's unprofessionalism would range from, lying to colleagues (in person as well as in written correspondence), to not showing up for arranged and confirmed meetings.  The situation became even worse in 2013 when he was bouncing checks to Grammy Award Winning Writers/Producers, such as Rob-A (Rihanna, "Disturbia") and Nate Walka (Jamie Foxx, "Blame it on the Alcohol") that had been writing for me.  He even went so far as to slander my name to a paying client of mine, that I had always had a strong relationship with.  The bridges Will Lacy burned in the music industry while acting as my "manager and investor," caused significant stress, financial difficulties and professional damage to my reputation.  

 
During the course of his "management" and "investor" roles for the past 2 years, there was a proposed reality show with a major cable network that we were shooting a pilot for.  Once again, Will Lacy bounced a check to the helicopter company for this pilot, which I had to cover as well.  
 
 
In late 2013, we started a joint business venture together in Artkansa, in which Will refused to pay his portion of the taxes on, which I ended up having to take care of.  In addition, he fell $30,000 short of the budget that had been agreed upon us in writing.  
 
 
After Will Lacy's breach of contract with me, he then went behind my back to one of the artists that I had been working with and developing for three years and began paying him off the books ending that relationship as well.  I just want to warn anyone that has Will Lacy come across their path to steer clear from him unless you want to open your wallets and cover his expenses and empty promises to deliver.

Invoice attached

AUTHOR: WLPR Publicist - ()

I received an email from Ms Lewis last night stating that they were unhappy with a logo that I created for Kid Krush (Kolin Sorrell) and that the dates on the screenshots of the text messages were incorrect.  I am perplexed that Ms Lacy is in complete denial of what a time/date stamp means in this day and age of electronic and digital communication.  To clarify for anyone that needs the additional proof of the invoice in question, once again for PRODUCT not SERVICE, the invoice is attached, along with the email time/date stamped of July 2nd, 2014 after she requested it to be resent to her via the text messages provided for clarification.  In addition, Ms Lewis had openly invited anyone with any questions to reach out to her and call her - however, she neglected to give her phone number.  In case you need to reach her, her cell phone number is 501-463-7150.  I am certain that I am not the only person that they are in debt to.  I can only hope that debt collectors and merchants alike will find this information helpful.

To the Incoherant Rebuttal from Ms Lewis

AUTHOR: WLPR Publicist - ()

After reviewing the "rebuttal" from Mr Lacy's girlfriend, Ms. Lewis last night, her inchoherent ramblings clearly proved my point.  I have said all along, and even in the inital report I shared, that I never represented her boyfriend, Will Lacy nor his artist, Kolin Sorrel, with the stage name of Kid Krush.  Therefore, I can not be "fired" from a job I didn't have.  For her to try and save "face" on her behalf and her boyfriend, this was just another pathetic attempt and slander as she tried weeks ago - which clearly backfired on her when she attacked me on social media.  She does not seem to understand the purpose of Rip Off Report is to make the public aware of mishandlings of business in individuals and companies, similar to Consumer Reports.  

 

In addition, and on that note, her statement that her boyfriend "fired me" is utterly absurd.  It is as if she is claiming they "fired" Amazon for delivering a book they ordered.  I am providing exact screen shots of her conversations with me on July 2nd asking for clarification of the invoice, which was for PRODUCT, not SERVICE.  I mentioned in my initial report that I do not take on Public Relations clients unless they have met all the criteria for the ARA Voting Membership criteria.  Then, and only then, do I consider placing a client in a contract for PR.  


Mr Lacy and Ms Lewis refused payment for product, a website, domains, hosting, content placement and social media.  She clearly acknowledges the $350 payment they received a receipt for on June 28th, 2014 while at Platinum Sounds Studio, however, the site was removed for non payment and they were placed in collection for the outstanding balance of $1211.  I am not certain what thinking they have on the matter, you can not expect to go grocery shopping and pay for your food a month after you brought groceries home.  Product is delivered upon payment.  You place an order, you submit payment.  All invoices are marked Payment Due Upon Receipt.  Shall they wish to arbitrate this matter, they are more than welcome to pay Rip Off Report the $2,000 fee.
