By | Published on Friday 11 February 2011


Ne-Yo is being sued by his former manager for the second time in five years over claims that the singer withheld royalties due to him. Munir Mahmud is suing again because, he claims, the R&B star has reneged on an agreement reached in relation to the original lawsuit.

According to RadarOnline, Mahmud’s new lawsuit says: “This is a civil action for breach of settlement agreement which resolved prior action. This is the second time the plaintiff has been forced to file suit against the defendants for failing to pay monies expressly due to the plaintiff. [Ne-Yo is] in violation of the terms of the settlement agreement. Despite repeated inquiries from the plaintiff, defendants failed to submit to royalty settlements to the plaintiff identifying the amount of royalties paid to Smith [aka Ne-Yo] in connection with the publishing and performance income, as required”.
