According to reports, Jill Scott has left her label Hidden Beach while still under contract and is consequently being sued for doing so…

R&B star Jill Scott has been sued by her longtime record label, which has accused her of pulling out halfway through a six-album record contract.

Industry paper The Hollywood Reporter said Hidden Beach Records is seeking damages for the money it would have made from the rest of the deal. The legal action states that Hidden Beach’s founder, Steve McKeever, helped launch Ms Scott’s career, but was dumped in October after more than 10 years of collaboration.

“Hidden Beach is shocked by her decision, not only because Scott has apparently chosen to leave the Hidden Beach family, but also because Scott is contractually required to deliver three more albums to Hidden Beach…Hidden Beach feels that Jill Scott is an incredibly talented artist” the company’s lawyer, Lawrence Hinkle, said. “No one regrets that this lawsuit had to be filed more than Hidden Beach, but its hands were tied and it had no other option.” [Source]

Damn. That’s quite the surprise! Things couldn’t have been good and well over there for it to have ended like this. Will keep you informed of any new developments.

Regardless – I still need that new Jill Scott album. No delays!

Peace, Love & Jill Scott
