Rita Ora Countersued By Jay Z’s Roc Nation | Music News
Rita Ora is being sued by her record label – and Jay Z’s company – Roc Nation, as a response to a lawsuit she filed against them in December. In her original complaint against the label, which aimed at releasing Ora from her contract, she claimed that the latter violated California law and was therefore unenforceable.
Ora’s initial lawsuit read: “When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist. As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company”.
So now, the label is countersuing Ora for £1.6 million, claiming it has spent more than £1.4 milliom developing and marketing the singer’s upcoming second album. According to Page Six, Roc Nation says it “has tirelessly promoted [her] career, investing millions of dollars in marketing, recording and other costs, which was instrumental in guiding Ms Ora to her current level of success and fame”.
