Brandy's record label is firing back!
Earlier this week, the Moesha alum filed a lawsuit to axe her contract with Chameleon Entertainment, claiming that the company has been stringing her along for the past five years.

The singer alleges that her label had promised to put a ton of money into recording new music for the 37-year-old, but refuses to actually follow through.
The Mississippi native even went so far as to compare her legal struggle with Kesha's contentious battle with Dr. Luke — but "without the sex" — and also likened it to slavery.
And now, a rep for Chameleon's CEO Breyon Prescott is SLAMMING the singer's suit! The spokesperson said Brandy is just after publicity, saying she's washed up!
In fact, the rep really dissed the fierce female, adding that Breyon actually made a risky call by "signing an artist that hasn't had a chart single success since the early 2000's."
That burn's gotta hurt!
Mr. Prescott's rep also thinks Brandy shouldn't have alluded to slavery in her suit, since there's a lot of racial tension in the US right now.
Not to mention, they also alleged that the musician AND her lawyer had both looked the contract over before signing, so she knew exactly what she was getting into.
