Singer H.E.R is ready to end her record deal with MBK Entertainment, the label she has been signed with since the age of 14.
According to reports, the Grammy-award-winning artist has filed a lawsuit against the record label in the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County, where she cited the California Labor Code’s Seven-Year rule.
This rule means that contracts that are made in the state of California, are only supposed to last for seven years. H.E.R. signed with the record label in May 2011 and is currently arguing that the contract can’t be extended past May 2019.
The “Focus” singer also claims that MBK “significantly limited her employment rights and also has exploited her at different times of career.”
The court documents state that H.E.R. is seeking “restitution and disgorgement of funds according to proof; for costs of suit incurred herein; and for such other and further relief as the Court deems just and proper.”
In 2021, H.E.R. released her debut album Back of My Mind which debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 charts. The album features Chris Brown, Cordae, Ty Dolla $ign, Young Bleu, Lil Baby, and Bryson Tiller.
