Article By: Ashia Skye
After dealing with some of his own legal troubles, singer/rapper T-Pain is now bringing forth his own lawsuit. According to The Blast, Pain filed a massive $1 million dollar lawsuit against his former manager and management company. He claims the company was taking higher commissions than they were contractually entitled to. Now T-Pain wants his money back, plus damages.
The singer first signed to the management company in 2005. At the time, the talent agency agreed to take 20 percent commission from all of his music and endorsement deals. T-Pain claims they did not honor this agreement at all in the following years.
The lawsuit claims that the company was “concealing from Plaintiff the true nature and details of the financial agreements related to his music career, including the income truly earned by him from his public performances and the necessary and proper expenses occurred in connection with same and marketing monies received by Defendant on behalf of Plaintiff’s career.”
T-Pain now seeks $1 million in damages and back pay for the past owed commissions he had paid up since 2005.
