End Of The Road: Mitchell Solarek Sues Mary Mary For Commission Checks & Embarrassment!
As fed up as they may look in the above picture with him, it seems as Mitchell Solarek is the one who officially had enough of the roller coast ride as Mary Mary’s manager.
Maximum Artist Group which is owned by Solarek filed a lawsuit against Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell, otherwise known as superstar gospel duo Mary Mary.
According to papers filed in a federal court in Tennessee and obtained by TMZ, Solarek says Max Art signed a deal with the group in 2011 that would have Mitchell Solarek serve as their manager. He says he reignited their musical career, obtaining over $3 million in various deals, one which includes their reality show Mary Mary on We Tv.
In turn, however, Solaek says he was pretty much shortchanged. He claims that Mary Mary stiffed him of more than $75,000 in commissions. He also says that he was publicly fired on the television.
The lawsuit is asking that a judge rule he be paid in back commission as well as the loss of commission on future music, books, sponsorships and anything else you can think of.
Wow. During the last season of Mary Mary, we often saw the duo arguing with him and quite often, our readers would say, “When is Mitchell Solarek going to get enough of their actions? He is extremely patient.” Well, it looks like he hit his breaking point with them.
As an avid viewer of the show, I don’t recall Mitchell being fired on the show so one can only assume the firing he mentions in the lawsuit during season three of Mary Mary. That season will premiere in February 2014.
