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.

Vanity Fair Embraces More Diversity Than Usual With New Hollywood Issue Cover Featuring Viola Davis, Jennifer Lawrence, Lupita Nyong'o, & More

Vanity Fair releases its annual Hollywood issue.

It's the annual Vanity Fair Hollywood issue!

And we're proud to report that it's a little more diverse than previous years.

The issue is known for almost always relegating actors of color into the foldout cover so they don't appear on the actual front page, but this time Viola Davis gets to share it with Jennifer Lawrence, Jane Fonda, and Cate Blanchett.

Progress, we guess.

The rest of the cover features Lupita Nyong'o, Brie Larson, Charlotte Rampling, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alicia Vikander, Rachel Weisz, Helen Mirren, Saoirse Ronan, and Diane Keaton.

There are also gorgeous individual portraits of all the women shot by Annie Leibovitz, which you can find in the gallery (above)!

But first, watch a clip of the women talking about their hoped-for legacies (below):
