Brandy Sues Label, Label Claps Back
Things are heating up between Brandy and her record label Chameleon Entertainment. Earlier this year, the “Beggin And Pleadin” singer filed a suit against the label and its president, Breyon Prescott.
According to legal documents obtained by EW, in March, the label “will not pay for her to record new albums or allow her to otherwise release music to her fans” in “a blatantly unlawful attempt to bully Norwood into signing a new recording and distribution agreement containing terms far worse than her current agreement.”
Brandy also claims the label owes her hundreds of thousands of dollars, which is why she is suing them for $1 million in compensatory damages. Her 2012 album Two Eleven was allegedly the first of a five-album deal. However, Brandy claims “events occurred that led Defendants to want to delay Norwood from working on her second album.”
Prescott clapped back, saying he took a major risk when he signed “an artist that hasn’t had a chart single success since the early 2000s,” TMZ reports.
Oop. He tried it.
Prescott reportedly believes Brandy’s lawsuit is a publicity stunt.
