Cash Money Records Hit With $1 Million Lawsuit Over Jay Sean’s Album
Jay Sean's production team wants Birdman to pay up.
Orange Factory Music, which is comprised of producers that worked with the singer, claim Cash Money Records never paid them in full for working on Jay Sean's 2009 album, 'All or Nothing,' TMZ reports.
According to the producers, they received a check for $211,000, but even that took two whole years to get. After that, payments abruptly stopped. But here's the thing, Cash Money and Jay Sean received royalties somewhere in the hundreds of thousands, based on statements Orange Factory received, but they didn't get a penny of it -- not even a promise that payment was on its way.
So as a result, Robert Larow and Jeremy Skaller, who primarily make up the production team, want to see the hitmaking label in court to collect what they say is properly owed to them. They're suing for at least $1 million.
As of today (Nov. 17), neither the U.K. crooner nor Cash Money executives have made a statement about the dispute, and there's no word when the court case will actually begin.
Birdman, who runs Cash Money Records along with his partner Slim, was hit with another lawsuitlast week. The rap mogul is accused of failing to pay more than $1 million to a construction company after they did renovations on his swanky Miami mansion.
