Flo Rida launches legal battle over real estate deal

Rapper Flo Rida has taken legal action against a couple over accusations they reneged on a real estate deal. The Right Round hitmaker claims he handed over $170,000 (£106,000) as a down payment on Pierre and Marie Malette’s Florida home in 2009, but alleges the house was never signed over to him and he was not given his money back.
The claim against the owners has been filed as part of their bankruptcy case, according to TMZ.com.
