Scott Storch Sued For Not Producing Promised Tracks for Aspiring Artist
The hip-hop producer is being sued by an aspiring singer who claims she paid him to produce her album but he was too drugged up to get the job done, reports TMZ.
Treena Ruberg says Storch agreed to produce six songs in exchange for $45,000 back in October 2011, $30k of which she paid him up front.
Ruberg filed the lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, adding that Storch acknowledged he had a previous drug problem but promised he would deliver the tracks by the end of November. But, Ruberg says Scotty lied, and “continued to have a drug addiction and other personal problems which rendered him incapable of producing any recordings.”
Ruberg now wants her $30K back, plus an additional $70K for all of the expenses she incurred during the process, including plane flights, studio time and having to hire another producer.
Scott Storch has produced for the likes of Dr. Dre, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake in the past. —Gina Montana
