EXCLUSIVE: Singer Brandy – Heads Back to Court in Nasty Legal Fight with Record Label, Blasts Allegations She Violated Deal by Releasing Unapproved Music
The Dirty can exclusively report (since TMZ is too slow) – The new star of My Kitchen Rules (airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on Fox) Brandy has headed back to court in her nasty legal battle with her record label – blasting allegations she breached her deal by releasing new music without their approval and demanding their counter-suit be dismissed ASAP!
Back in July TMZ exclusively reported, Brandy sued her record label, Chameleon Entertainment, demanding the court void her music deal with the company. Brandy sued demanding to be let out of her contract with the label along with a judgement awarding her the hundreds of thousands she was promised.
Chameleon Entertainment responded to Brandy’s lawsuit and counter-sued the singer for releasing music without their approval. The company denied all of the allegations of wrong-doing in her lawsuit and accused the singer of breaching their deal not them and said any harm caused was her own doing.
Chameleon hit Brandy with a counter-suit explaining everything was fine between them until it came time to record her second album. They said they both agreed to find a different distributor than RCA/Jive, who they used for the first album. Brandy refused to cooperate with the company and would not record any new material. She did release a song entitled “Beggin & Pleadin” without their approval.
The Dirty can exclusively report Brandy has headed back to court and fired back at the counter-suit filed by her former label and demands it be thrown out immediately! The singer explains Chameleon cannot legally sue her because back on June 26th, 2016 the company “was legally dissolved by proclamation or annulment of authority by the New York Secretary of State for failure to file and/or pay franchise tax returns for two or more years”.
Brandy says the record label can’t really sue her because they don’t legally exist and thus have no standing to counter-sue. She is demanding the judge allow her case against the label to move forward but for their counter-suit to be dismissed. Whose kitchen rules now?
