TIDAL & Universal Are Blaming Each Other For Rihanna's ANTI Leak — And It's All Kinds Of Shady!

The bigger they are, the harder they fall…

Rihanna was set to have one of the biggest debuts of 2015, but after months of rescheduling the release of ANTI, she may have contributed to her own demise.

Even though the 27-year-old pushed over 1 million copies of her eighth studio album in just 15 hours on TIDAL, she only actually sold 1,000 copies, debuting at No. 27 on the Billboard 200!

Well, now that ANTI officially did not live up to the anticipation, it looks like the executives attached to the flop are trying to distance themselves from RiRi's latest work.

In fact, shortly after the album's initial leak, TIDAL's director of marketing Grace Kim released a statement ensuring fans everything was okay, saying:

Jay Z's Roc Nation Files $2.3 Million Counter Suit Against Rita Ora — But A Settlement May Be In The Near Future

Rita Ora & Jay Z lawsuit

Last month Rita Ora filed a lawsuit against Jay Z's Roc Nation citing a lack of attention to her music and career.

Now, the entertainment company is firing back with a counter suit asking for $2.3 million in damages due to the British singer breaching her five-album contract.

The cross-complaint filed on Friday in California Superior Court says the company has "tirelessly promoted" the British beauty's career — spending millions of dollars to record and promote her 2012 album Ora.

Roc Nation is asking for that money back PLUS the damages for the four albums that weren't delivered.

Yikes.

However, it looks like things might not get too messy as Ora's attorney, Howard King, says there is settlement in the works being arranged privately between his client and the company.

According to King, Jay Z even called Miz Ora personally to say everything was cool and she would be released from her contract:

"We're in the process of finalizing those details. [Jay Z] could not have been more gracious. It was just a little twist, because Jay Z, we are told, has to answer to Sony Music, so that's been the hangup in having this go away. But we're confident that Jay can resolve whatever he has to with Sony Music."

So it sounds like the counter suit was just Sony protecting itself, but now they can move forward with deciding on a resolution.

This is shady!

Rihanna is celebrating a platinum designation after ANTI, her eighth studio album, was deemed a massive seller this week by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)… but wait a second!!

The album, of course, was released for free on Jay Z's music service Tidal — so how could fans have bought one million copies elsewhere if they could just get it there?!

After all, it's only been 24 hours, the RIAA's tracking week isn't even over, and there's no way the album has already sold 1 million legitimate copies!

But maybe there's something else going on
