Brandy is charging ahead full steam with legal proceedings to release her from a record contract with Chameleon Entertainment.
As reported back in March, the Vocal Bible has filed suit against the company – to who she has been signed since 2011. And now further details have been revealed.
Full story below…
TMZ have obtained documents pertaining to the case and they make for a compelling read.
B-Rocka asserts in the suit that Chameleon promised her hundreds of thousands of dollars in production costs to make her albums. That, she says, did not happen.
She further alleges that the label made a point of preventing her from recording and releasing new music. Practice which puts her singing career in limbo.
The 37-year-old argues that Chameleon ironically tried to pressure her into giving up her non-recording revenue streams such as concerts and Broadway shows.
Not holding back, the star’s lawyer verbatim states that “Brandy Norwood’s story is ‘Kesha Redux, but without the sex.” As widely reported, Ke$ha lodged (and lost) a claim against Dr. Luke for a similar contract dispute, the main difference being the accusations of rape in that narrative.
Per the report, Brandy seeks release from the contract as well as compensation of the dollars she claims she’d owed her for pay or play fees.
For reasons yet to be determined, the current suit was filed this week in New York. The previous entry, which initially generated headlines three months ago, was filed in LA.
We just hope for a speedy resolve. The entire matter defines unfortunate and has ultimately denied fans a new album for four years.
