Jhene Aiko is being sued by a former tour manager who claims he is owed $70,000 by the singer.

Joshua Williams says that he was hired in October last year, and while on tour put over $50,000 worth of expenses on his personal credit card. He did this, he claims, on the promise that he would be reimbursed later. However, in his lawsuit he says that Aiko’s team are refusing to hand over $53,826.23 in expenses, and also $16,000 in wages.

The lawsuit adds that he has “repeatedly demanded payment”, but has so far received nothing. Hence he has gone legal. Williams is now seeking court assistance in securing the money he says he is owed, plus 10% interest and legal fees.

According to The Blast, Aiko’s team say that Williams has failed to provide receipts for any of the purchases he allegedly made in relation to the tour. Meanwhile Aiko’s accountants are reportedly conducting an investigation into whether or not Williams’ claims are fraudulent.
