Rita Ora Files Lawsuit Against Jay Z's Roc Nation

Rita Ora has just filed a lawsuit against her label, Jay Z‘s Roc Nation, citing the current state of the company and referring to California’s “seven-year rule.”

The 25-year-old singer signed with the label when she was 18 and she says that she feels “orphaned” by the company now that it is pursuing other ventures, such as sports management.

“When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist,” the complaint filed by Rita reads (via Billboard). “As Roc Nation’s interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita‘s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.”

Rita‘s complain continues, adding that she is “self-funding her promotional television appearances, recording costs and video projects. Between Sony’s limited economic return from its orphaned relationship with Roc Nation and Sony’s indirect relationship with Rita, Rita is caught in a political quagmire of dysfunction.”

Rita‘s relationship with Roc Nation is irrevocably damaged,” the complaint adds. “Fortunately for Rita, the California legislature had the foresight to protect its artists from the sorts of vicissitudes she’s experienced with Roc Nation.”

    Why doesn’t she just quit, go to school and try and get a real job. They’ve been trying for over five years to force her into the spotlight but nobody cares she’s like the Gretchen Mol of the music industry.
