*Tamar Braxton’s husband’ger, Vincent Herbert, was hit with a $3 million plus lawsuit from Sony Music after he allegedly refused to fork over millions of dollars that he owed the label.
According to The Jasmine Brand, Sony filed for a default judgment against Herbert after he allegedly failed to show up in court to address the allegations. Last year, the label accused him of reneging on a deal after they paid him a $5 million advance. The label is now looking to recoup.
Back in 2013, Sony Music and Streamline Records reached a deal in which Herbert would be paid for new artists that he brought in. He reportedly received a $5 million advance from Sony against future profits, with the understanding that he would direct Interscope Records to make payments directly to Sony as their joint venture turned a profit.
Under the deal, Herbert was directed to sign two artists per year. His wife, Tamar Braxton, was the first artist, and received $1 million for recording her first album. But then, in 2015, Herbert told Interscope to stop sending payments to Sony, according to the suit, even though Sony had only been paid $1,528,315.
Now, they are asking for the remaining $3,471,685 back.
