One time Fugee Pras Michael is planning to  issue proceedings against the New York Post after the newspaper accused Pras of bailing on a “9/11 benefit concert” organised by his own charity, the Hope For Them Foundation. The article also apparently claimed that the Foundation had bounced a cheque to the venue, had falsely claimed its event was sponsored by MTV, and isn’t properly registered as a charity with state officials. But it seems the newspaper has added to the confusion as the benefit, whilst on the 11th September, was not actually a benefit related to the attack on the Twin Towers. Lawyers for Pras have also said he was not a board member for Hope For Them Foundation and the charity itself said “Pras is a good friend of the organisation and supports our cause but is NOT a board member”. A claim for $30 million in damages will be filed.
