A Broward jury sided with Flo Rida in his lawsuit against energy drink maker Celsius, awarding the rapper more than $82 million over the company's breach of contract on an endorsement deal.

Flo Rida's Hialeah-based company Strong Arm Productions USA, Inc. claimed there was a breach of contract from the 2014 endorsement deal, saying that he signed the deal to serve to "globally market and promote all aspects of the Celsius brand."

Flo Rida filed the suit over company stock he said he was promised and never received for promoting the Celsius drinks for years.

Flo said his endorsement played a big role in the company’s success, especially when it first got started and each share was sold for less than $1. As of writing, shares are currently $101.

He said in an interview that there was "no bad blood" between him and Celcius after the lawsuit.

He also said that he still likes the energy drinks, and was seen drinking one as he left.
