Ke$ha Wants Her $$$


According to the Hollywood Reporter:

Pop star Ke$ha has dropped a powerful legal bomb on a former manager who is suing her for $14 million in allegedly unpaid commissions.

In a move that will not be a surprise to lawyers familiar with talent/management disputes, the “Tik Tok” songstress is asking the California Labor Commissioner to declare her contract with DAS Communications void because it acted as an unlicensed talent agent while representing her. That’s a big no-no in California, where only registered (and regulated) agents can “procure” work for clients, and the punishment for violating the Talent Agencies Act can be severe.

Ke$ha (real name: Kesha Rose Sebert; we can barely bring ourselves to type the dollar sign) was sued in New York in May for allegedly breaching a 2006 deal to pay New York-based DAS and principal David Sonenberg 20% of her music earnings. The singer later left DAS and hired RCA/Jive Record Group to represent her, according to the lawsuit. At issue is whether DAS is entitled to commissions from Ke$ha’s lucrative deal with Warner Bros. Records, among other things.
