Samantha Jade Is Being Sued By Former Managers
The winner of last year’s The X Factor Samantha Jade is now being sued by a US management company claiming she is still under contract with them.
When performers sign onto reality TV talent shows they must not be under contract with a record company and in some cases not contracted to a management company.
The Sunday Telegraph is saying:
Confidential has obtained documents lodged in a Californian court last week outlining a damages case from Camp West Recorders Inc company presidents John Harris and Ty Knox.
The pair is suing Jade for damages and alleged contract breaches as well as Sony Music, Parade Artists, Fremantle Media Australia and Simon Cowell’s Syco Entertainment.
Jade, 26, signed a development deal with Harris and Knox at 15, when she moved to Los Angeles.
The pair claim they spent $2 million developing her as an artist and that Jade is still signed to their management company.
They believe they’re entitled to the benefits of her ongoing success.
She and her current management team will be defending the action.
