Rita Ora is filing a law suit against her record label Roc Nation stating that her contract is unenforceable and violates California Law, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The songstress signed the contract when she was only 18 years of age and says that she has been “orphaned” from the company since it has expanded. The law suit also claims that the label has “diminished” with “only a handful of admittedly worthy heritage superstar artists.”
According to the law suit Rita Ora has “funded her own promotional television appearances, recording costs, and other video projects.” Allegedly the 25-year-old singer is still tied to a distribution deal with Sony that Roc Nation has overlooked since signing a new deal with Universal in 2013. According to California Labor Code Section 2855 also known as the “seven-year rule” that states one can not be held to a contract to perform personal services after a seven year lapse from the beginning of the deal.
It is now up to a judge to decide if Ora is tied to her contract or can be emancipated from the label. Roc Nation reps have yet to release statement on this matter.
