Dr. Dre Sued For Millions Over Recording Studio Bill
Producer/mogul Dr. Dre is being sued for millions of dollars for breach of contract, for allegedly failing to pay the bill for recording services.
Paramount Recording Studios is suing Dr. Dre, born Andre Young, for $1,220,500, for breach of contract, according to the lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (July 23rd).
Dr. Dre has recorded at Paramount for at least ten years, allowing him to receive a cheaper rate for recording at the studio.
According to the lawsuit, Dr. Dre and his record label Aftermath Entertainment allegedly rented the recording studio from April 2009 until June of 2010.
Paramount claims that they were never paid for the dates in question
Dr. Dre agreed to settle the bill with Paramount Recording Studios by July 13th, but failed to do so, resulting in the lawsuit.
Dr. Dre is putting the final touches on his highly anticipated album, Detox.
His label, Aftermath, currently has the #1 album in the country, as Eminem’s album Recovery has been at the top of the charts for the past four weeks.
