P!nk has been hit with a $36,213.31 lawsuit over unpaid royalties. It was launched by a former producer. For a pop act as successful as Pink, that's chump change, but a bit of a headache, nonetheless.
According to TMZ, Specialists Entertainment filed the suit against Pink in New York in December, claiming that she signed a deal with both their company and with Thunderstone Productions to produce songs on her debut album, Can't Take Me Home, back in 1999.
Specialists claims that they are still waiting for their half of the royalties for Pink's songs "Can't Take Me Home" and "Hiccup," 14 years after the fact.
"Sony are responsible for paying the producers" was the response of Pink's rep to the suit, referencing the singer's label and it's duty to compensate producers.
