HOLLYWOOD LOS ANGELES - Pitbull is being sued by Florida’s House Speaker over his contract to promote tourism in the state.

The Timber hitmaker signed a deal last year to promote tourism in Florida but most of the details of his contract, such as its worth and the requirements he had to fulfil, were kept confidential, with attorneys for the rapper’s production company claiming they are trade secrets which can be exempted from public record.

Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran filed a lawsuit against Pitbull’s company, PDR Productions, in a Tallahassee court on Tuesday asking a judge to make the contract public, claiming lawmakers have a right to view how state tax dollars are spent. “This suit is not about Pitbull or his compensation,” Corcoran said, according to the Associated Press.

 “This is about the audacity of government entities who are under the false impression that they are above the law or believe somehow that taxpayer money is a never ending river of riches they get to play with.”

His lawsuit also states that the House is currently “investigating Visit Florida’s use of public funds.”

Lawyers for Pitbull previously said last week lawmakers could view it but none of the terms could be “disclosed to the media or elsewhere.”

As part of his deal, Pitbull, real name Armando Christian Perez, promoted the state in his music video for song Sexy Beaches. His contract with Visit Florida expired this summer.
