Earlier this month, it was reported that T-Pain slapped his former management team with a lawsuit claiming that he was defrauded of an excess of one million dollars. But the management team is not taking this lawsuit lying down. They are counter-suing T-Pain.
According to The Blast, Chase Management alleges, “In a futile effort to come up with a negotiating strategy to help T-Pain leverage his way out of his irrefutable legal obligation to pay Chase post-termination management commissions, believed to be in excess of $1 Million, T-Pain finds himself reduced to fabricating absurd and baseless claims against his former manager. Despite repeated demands by Chase, T- Pain has refused to account to or pay Chase for their rightful share of commissions.”
In the counter-suit, Chase Management has denied all charges levied against them, but they allege that T-Pain blew through his earnings. They claim, “ Sadly, much of that money was squandered by T-Pain, despite Chase’s entreaties to T-Pain over the years that he control his profligate spending habits. Unfortunately, T-Pain’s financial self-destructive conduct continued unabated even after the parties ended their professional relationship.”
Chase is suing T-Pain for $1 million dollars in damages.
