En Vogue Sued For Millions By Former Record Label
So, En Vogue has yet another legal battle on their hands. According to TMZ, the troubled girl group is being sued for more than $100 million. Yes, you read correctly.
The lawsuit has been filed by Rufftown Records founder Rene Moore, who argues that he kicked out nearly $200,000 in 2010 to fund a major En Vogue comeback, which consisted of a new album and tour. The deal included original members Cindy Heron, Terry Ellis and Maxine Jones. There was even footage of the trio announcing that they were working on the album, which surfaced in 2011.
Unfortunately, Moore claims that not only did the ladies abandon the project, they turned around and signed with another label, Pyramid Records, in 2014. According to his suit, he believes that En Vogue’s failure to see the album and tour to completion caused him to lose out on some pretty serious cash. As a result, he’s suing both En Vogue and Pyramid Records for more than $100 Million.
So far, the group has yet to publicly respond to the lawsuit. But as we have witnessed, the group has undergone another facelift. Maxine Jones is no longer an active member, as we’ve previously reported. This group has experienced more than it’s share of drama over the years and this certainly isn’t their first legal battle. Just last year, ex-member Dawn Robinson threatened to sue Lifetime over their made-for-TV film, En Vogue Christmas. I suppose we’ll have to stay tuned to see how this all unfolds…
