LIL’ KIM SUED BY RECORD LABEL October 10, 2008

A $2.5 million breach-of-contract lawsuit has been filed against Lil Kim by Brookland Media over claims that the rapper failed to deliver tracks as required by their contract.

 

       The lawsuit, filed Tuesday in Manhattan’s state Supreme Court, says Brookland paid Atlantic Records $200,000 to get her out of her previous contract, spent $240,000 to produce eight songs and shelled out $12,000 per month in rent for a home near Kim’s Alpine, N.J., home.      

       The filing says she had recorded only a few tracks toward a new album by the beginning of September before trying to alter the contract and refusing to continue recording unless Brookland agreed to her changes.      

       Brookland wants the court to declare the contract valid and bar Lil’ Kim from recording for another company.  Lil’ Kim’s lawyer, Londell McMillan, says Brookland sued “to leverage their own position” in the contract dispute.

 

       “We think they’re wonderful people and we expect to do business with them,” Kim’s attorney Londell McMillan told the New York Daily News. “But they did not honor the terms of the agreement.”
