Pink Hit With $36k Lawsuit For Past Royalties
P!nk forgot the little people on her way up the ladder, at least according to a new lawsuit accusing her of cheating her ex producers out of $36k in royalties. A company called Specialists Entertainment filed docs in NYC last month, claiming P!nk signed a deal with them, and Thunderstone Productions, to produce on her debut album back in 1999.
According to the suit, the two companies agreed to split producers' royalties 50-50, before cranking out 2 songs, "Can't Take Me Home" and "Hiccup" for P!nk -- real name Alecia Moore.
Well, the album blew up, selling 5 million copies, according to the docs, and helped launch P!nk's career. Only problem, SE says the royalties they agreed to never showed up. Now, SE is suing P!nk for $36,213.31, the remainder of the unpaid royalties.
A rep for P!nk told us this isn't the singer's problem, because, "Sony are responsible for paying the producers."
