Frank Ocean Lost In The Midst Of A Lawsuit! Producer Claims He Copied His Song!

frank ocean sued over song lost

Say it ain’t so!

After flying high at the Grammys and spending some quality time with his mom at Paris Fashion Week, Frank Ocean came home to some terrible news. He’s being sued!

We all love the hit Lost, but apparently songwriter Micah Otano is claiming that it was ripped off from his song Daylight! Now he’s hoping to claim royalties and get credit for helping produce the single.

Hopefully this isn’t true, but it certainly doesn’t help that Micah has worked directly with channel ORANGE producer Malaya, who he claims stole the song from him.

It’s sad to see this happen just when things were going so well for Frank, but we hope he can get this lawsuit sorted out soon so he can get back to working on his new album!

All Drake Wants For Christmas Is YOLO Royalty Check$!

Filed under: Fashion SmashionBusiness BlitzDrakeMacy's


Looks like Drizzy don't got the money after all!

Drake was apparently none too pleased to find YOLO merch filling the racks at Macy’s and Walgreens this holiday season.

Why? Because he's not getting paid for it!

Drizzy posted pics of the swag to his Instagram on Christmas, telling both retailers they either gotta "chill or cut the cheque".

Well, he did make the phrase popular, but if he wanted the cash he should have trademarked it!

WOW. Someone cleaned out!

We reported last month that after almost two years of legally trying to rip each other's throats out over custody and financial support, Melissa Etheridge and her ex, Tammy Lynn Michaels, had reached a settlement in their domestic partnership split.

Julie Taymor Slings A Spidey Lawsuit!

Julie Taymor Spiderman Lawsuit Money

Poor Julie Taymor!

It must be pretty rough being thrown around in conversations of Broadway Spiderman's many hurdles.

Not only that but she claims she's been missing out on all the sweet gold she deserves for doing her part (albeit a controversial one). And now she's ready to sling it back in the producers' faces.

The Stage Director and Choreographers' Society (SDC) have already filed a claim against the producers for failing to pay Julie her proper royalties earlier this year.

And now Julie is filing some paperwork of her own — a big, fat lawsuit!

Her lawyer states:
