Jay Z’s Record Label (RocNation) Sues Rita Ora for $2.4 Million

Jay Z’s entertainment company Roc Nation has filed a $2.4 million lawsuit against Rita Ora for breaking her contract and failing to deliver new albums. Back in December, Rita filed suit against Roc Nation because she felt she’d been pushed aside when the company began representing athletes. “As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. “Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.”
In the new countersuit, Roc Nation claims that it’s spent over $2 million marketing Rita and her still-unreleased second album, and says they have “tirelessly promoted” her career. Rita’s contract with Roc Nation specified that she would release five albums; so far she has only delivered one, Ora, which was never released in the U.S. According to Rita’s lawyer Howard King, Jay Z has already told her that she can leave the label if she wants, and told the Daily News that he believes the countersuit was filed in order to meet a court deadline. “He said he’s happy to let her go,” King said. “He called her the day we filed and graciously said she didn’t need to file.”
