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

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal MattersJay ZBusiness BlitzRita OraSony

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.

Has Rihanna's Album Been Pushed Back Over A Month To Make Room For Adele?!

Filed under: RihannaMusic MinuteAdele

no title

We'd already heard that her dad thinks she's not happy with the album — but this is getting a bit ridiculous.

Rihanna seems to have been actively torpedoing ANTI for weeks now, and Tuesday didn't do much to renew faith in her eighth studio album.

In addition to news that RiRi has pulled out of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, it was also reported that the Stay singer and her team are nervous about dropping the record during the reign of Queen Adele!

While we understand that no one wants to go up against the record-breaking British songstress' 25, other A-Listers like One Direction, Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, and Little Mix don't seem concerned with the proximity of their release dates.

Apparently, Samsung was supposed to orchestrate the ANTI giveaway following that $25 million marketing deal, but now that Adele is in the picture, it seems like Roc Nation is nervous that Rihanna could underperform… again (Believe it our not, 2012's Unapologetic is actually her only No. 1 album).

While we were suposedly supposed to get her new music this month, it's looking more and more like we'll be seeing ANTI in December… or, heaven forbid, early 2016!

Do U think Rihanna's album will ever see the light of day??

Demi Lovato, Janelle Monae, And Kylie Minogue Wear Very Different Patterns To The Roc Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch!

no title

It was a mix and match kind of afternoon at the Roc Nation Pre-Grammy Brunch in Beverly Hills on Saturday!

Demi Lovato, Janelle Monae, and Kylie Minogue all opted for patterns while walking the black carpet — each doing an excellent job of making their personal styles shine!

Janelle donned a polka-dotted jumpsuit with matching pumps and a red clutch, but all we could pay attention to was her circular disc hat. BOLD move, girl!

Demi-corn rocked a tropical blazer with a white button up, a black fedora, and some seriously pointy creepers. We'd say this get-up is quintessentially Demmerz.

And lastly, Kylie chose a slightly gilded jumper. While we love her hair/makeup, the fit of the ensem was completely off.

Best two out of three ain't bad, right?!
