One of Florida's legislative leaders is suing Pitbull's company to find out much the state of Florida paid the famous rapper.
House Speaker Richard Corcoran on Tuesday filed a lawsuit against PDR Productions so legislators can publicly disclose contents of a contract that the state's tourism marketing organization signed with Pitbull.
Corcoran said the House has a right to hold those who spend taxpayer money "accountable" and that state spending should be transparent.
The Miami music star signed a deal with Visit Florida last year and as part of the deal released a video this past summer for the song "Sexy Beaches" that includes scenes from nearly two-dozen Florida beaches.
Pitbull's company declared that the contents of the contract - including how much Pitbull got paid - were trade secrets and were not subject to the state's public records law.
