R.Kelly Sued By Ex Manager
R. Kelly is being sued by his former manager, Derrel McDavid for being ungrateful after he made him a star.
According to a lawsuit filed, Derrel McDavid says he’s managed R. Kelly for decades and helped him navigate from a nobody to a superstar.
TMZ reports that things started getting dirty last year when Kelly and McDavid parted company. The lawsuit said they made a deal that Kelly would give McDavid $1.3 million and they’d walk their separate ways.
McDavid says Kelly made the initial $300K payment, but the deal called for additional $40K a month payments for 18 months and he hasn’t received anything since then.
McDavid’s suing for the $1M balance.
R.Kelly could be in deep problem if he refuses to own up to the agreement as TMZ gathered that McDavid was deeply involved in Kelly’s professional and personal life, and knows everything about the various disputes he’s had with women and others going back 20 years.
