R&B singer Ginuwine recently filed a lawsuit regarding an allegedly fake recording contract, which he was ‘duped’ into signing. Check out the report below via MSNBC:
NEW YORK – Ginuwine says he was duped into signing a contract with a record company that doesn’t exist.
In a lawsuit filed in Manhattan’s state Supreme Court, the R&B singer says he was persuaded to sign on May 8, 2007, with King Music Group Inc., a company that a personal acquaintance, Michael Bourne of Memphis, Tenn., said he owned.
Terms of the contract gave Ginuwine, whose real name is Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, $1.75 million to record his first album with King, including a $500,000 advance, according to court papers. In nearly five months, the singer hasn’t made any records and hasn’t been paid a cent, the lawsuit said.
