New Edition is being sued for 500,000 from Benchmark Entertainment.
Check out the details.
Benchmark Entertainment, a huge management company is suing New Edition for $500,000.
Benchmark Entertainment says it was hired in 2012 and got them three concerts last year and a concert tour this year. Benchmark says it was paid its 12.5 percent in 2013, but hasn’t been paid this year for work that’s worth at least half a million dollars. Benchmark says its work includes setting up radio interviews and merchandising deals.
The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan Supreme Court earlier this week. Ronny DeVoe, Johnny Gill, Ralph Tresvant, Ricky Bell and Mike Bivens are on tour now and will be until they do their last show in Los Angeles on August 3, 2014.
As you should remember Bobby Brown left the tour a few weeks ago after falling ill and not being able to keep up with the group’s dance moves and actually left the stage during a Mississippi performance.
This story should be evolving.
