‘Who You Are’ philanthropist Jessie J has been forced to hand over a reported £1 million to her former manager, it has emerged today.
This, following a two year long dispute with the group- responsible for signing her as a Brit School spawned teenager.

Signing to the 141a Management group aged 15, the charitable vocalist came under the pupilage of a Mr. Raymond Stevenson who secured her a US recording contract, after spending a reported £70,000 of his own money to free her from a British contract once the label behind it dissolved.
As a result of his strategy during her time with him, the singer was picked up by ‘Crown Management’ and parted ways with 141a without-according to Stevenson– paying him the money she owed for his hand in crafting her brand.
Now, after legal dispute that flew under the media’s radar for some time, today saw news that an ‘amicable solution’ had been reached, seeing Jessie fork out 20% of the earnings made from her Quadruple Platinum debut album ‘Who You Are’, before the company told ‘The Sun’ newspaper:
“141a is very proud of Jessie’s achievements – she is a very talented artist.”
The settlement comes after the same managent company led Lover’s Rock belle Ava Leigh to scoring a recording contract with Richard Branson‘s ‘Virgin’ and oversaw the careers of ‘Bulletproof Lover‘ belles ‘The Madame Project’.
