Donald Glover Is Being Sued By His Former Record Label Over Unpaid Royalties
Donald Glover is facing a lawsuit after allegations that he did not share his streaming royalties with his former record label, Glassnote Entertainment Group, TMZ reports.
The record label claims that Glover, who raps under the alias Childish Gambino, was paid $700,000 in streaming royalties and did not pay them the percentage that they were entitled to.
Glassnote has been continuing to pay the Atlanta star his royalties, amounting to $8 million with another $2 million to come in the next three months, yet they have not received anything from him. Glover allegedly told the record label that in order for them to get paid their royalties, he wanted another $1.5 million from them.
While signed with the label, he released a slew of mixtapes and albums, including Camp, Because the Internet and Awaken My Love.
This isn’t the first time Glover bumped heads with that label. After being unhappy with the way Glassnote handled his 2013 Sweatpants release and his Deep Web Tour, the “Redbone” singer was vocal about his dissatisfaction with the label and was eager to part ways.
Earlier this year, Glover signed a deal with RCA Records.
