Salt-N-PepaDJ, Spinderella, is preparing a remix that probably looks like this – Whatta Scam, Whatta Scam, Whatta Mighty Good Scam – because she says the band stole millions from her.
Spin has filed a lawsuit against members of his group for almost 35 years … claiming that the job began with the album "Best of", released in 1999. In this lawsuit, it was had promised a third of the royalties for the recording, I received a call telling her that she would get $ 125,000 … but she never got it.
According to the documentation obtained by TMZ, this was just the beginning. Spin says that she was also deceived when Salt-N-Pepa excluded her from a VH1 TV show based on the group's rise to stardom. In the suit, she says that she had been promised one-third of the group's fees for the show – and even though she had an occasional place, she had well under a third.
Even worse, Spin says that she has not received any ZERO compensation for their appearance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards.
But, depending on the costume, she had the biggest shock this year. Spin says that she was informed by SoundExchange – which collects and distributes royalties to artists – that her band members had received more than $ 600,000 in royalties over the last decade, but she did not say that she was not a fan. had not seen a penny of that money.
Spinderella is suing for trademark infringement – she says Salt-N-Pepa continues to use it to promote performance – as well as fraud and breach of contract.
