The once prolific music man Jermaine Dupri is facing yet another lawsuit. Find out the deets below.
ATL’s once powerful mogul is back in the headlines once again over a lawsuit where someone is saying Dupri owes them money
According to the legal documents filed in a Georgia courthouse, Dupri’s former Dieniahmar Music LLC partner Eddie Weathers claims they supposed to split profits 50/50 but was purposely kept out of a merger deal that cost him hundreds of thousands in royalties.
They go on to say:
“On April 11, 2008, Weathers received a check from Mauldin’s new business manager…in the amount of $275,752.97 which represented two years of back pay royalties due Weathers,” the civil suit states.
Weathers claims that when Dupri hired a new business manager in 2011, Willie Carter, his payments ceased, or came late, or were just a fraction of what he was owed.
And when Dupri told Weathers he planned to sell Dieniahmar Music to EMI in April 2013, he claims he was promised a $238,000 cut — which he never got.
Homie is looking for a million in damages. And seeing as though JD is now Mariah Carey’s personal whipping boy, managerI doubt he’s gonna back down and pay. How would that media report look? Yikes!
