JOJO SUING HER RECORD COMPANY
Joanna Levesque aka ‘Jojo’, has just filed a lawsuit in NYC courts claiming her record company, (Da Family Entertainment/Blackground) shoved her into a musical “limbo” because they wont let her out of her contract. Levesque recently turned 18 and became old enough to file a lawsuit, which she did immediately.
The singer has been talking about her label issues for months and spoke about the lawsuit via her myspace blog this weekend:
My situation is a bit a-typical. It is not a case where the artist loves the material they are making, is set in his or her ways, will not take direction or advice, and will not cooperate with the label. This is NOT the case at all. I’ve been blessed to receive great feedback from the record company in response to the music I’ve been delivering. But unfortunately I have become a victim of industry politics that honestly have nothing to do with me personally or professionally. Because of this, I am willing to fight for what I love and ultimately for the chance to regain control of my livelihood and my life. [ READ THE FULL POST ]
She also wants the label to pay her at least $500,000 for damages.
