Case Closed: Judge Rules In Favor Of Cindy Herron And Terry Ellis In En Vogue Name Rights Dispute
Do you remember that scene from the bio flick about Motown musical act The Temptations where there were like three sets of “Temptations” touring at one time? Well, that won’t be happening with En Vogue anymore.
Last summer the ladies had a falling out, which resulted in Maxine Jones chucking the deuces to Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis, joining former group member Dawn Robinson in another version of the singing ensemble bearing the same name. Not long after, Maxine took to her Twitter page, calling Cindy and Terry “evil” and dropping the bomb that the ladies were suing her.
“Yup Terry n Cindy r evil! They took over the LLC n bank acct, forced me out, gave my gigs 2 that chick LOL, and SUING #ME!” Maxine tweeted.
“Real arrogant b*tc*es drunk with power lol! My lawyer and I look forward 2 court! We’re gonna catch it on our reality show 2 lol,” she continued.
Dawn also chimed in, assuring her girl that “justice” would be served. It seems that Dawn and Maxine didn’t get the outcome that they may have been hoping for though. A judge recently ruled that Dawn and Maxine can no longer perform or book gigs under the name En Vogue, granting use of the name exclusively to Cindy and Terry, reports TMZ.
Cindy and Terry also sued Dawn and Maxine for $1million for touring under the En Vogue name. This, however, was not honored, as the ladies could not prove that any harm was done to their LLC as a result of Dawn and Maxine’s use.
There’s a chance we’ll get to see some of the legal action, as Dawn is still in the process of filming R&B Divas: LA.
