We wouldn’t wish this on our worst enemy. We feel TERRIBLE that Brandy has to go through this!
Brandy Norwood, the 37-year-old singer with hit songs including “The Boy Is Mine” and “Have You Ever?”, is suing a record label that she claims refuses to release her new music.
The Grammy-winning singer filed the lawsuit against her record label Chameleon Entertainment and its president, Breyon Prescott, in Los Angeles Superior Court.
In the complaint, Brandy claims the label “will not pay for her to record new albums or allow her to otherwise release music to her fans” in “a blatantly unlawful attempt to bully Norwood into signing a new recording and distribution agreement containing terms far worse than her current agreement.”

The sister of Ray J, Kim Kardashian’s sex-tape partner, is seeking $1 million in compensatory damages.
Brandy is claiming that Prescott has attempted to have her sign a new recording contract with the label, which would allow the company to profit from Norwood’s acting and touring projects.
The lawsuit also states that Chameleon was obligated to pay recording costs for the second album in the amount of $600,000. But the lawsuit claims that “events occurred that led Defendants to want to delay Norwood from working on her second album.”
Norwood’s legal team alleges that RCA, who distributed Norwood’s albums with Chameleon, terminated its distribution deal for her albums leaving Chameleon “in a bind.”
The documents claim that Chameleon suspended Norwood’s contract in April 2014, mailing her a letter where they accused her attorney of telling Chameleon’s president that she had “failed to cooperate” with the label./
