Pink sued over unpaid royalties

Los Angeles - Pink is being sued over unpaid royalties from her debut album according to TMZ.

The Blow Me hitmaker has been accused of cheating her former producers out of $36 000, according to a lawsuit filed in New York last month.

A company called Specialists Entertainment claim Pink signed a deal with them and Thunderstone Productions to produce her first record Can't Take Me Home, which was released in 2000 and went on to sell over five million copies.

Sony is responsible


According to the lawsuit, the two companies agreed to split producers' royalties 50-50 on the tracks they worked on, Can't Take Me Home and Hiccup, but Specialists Entertainment now allege they have never received the royalties they agreed to.

The companies are suing Pink for $36 213.31, the remainder of the unpaid royalties.

Despite being the focus of the lawsuit, a representative for the star insists she isn't responsible for the situation. The spokesperson told gossip website TMZ: "[Her record company] Sony are responsible for paying the producers."

Pink has gone on to release a further five albums, with her most recent being 'The Truth About Love', last year.
