RZA Sued For Failing To Pay Dutch Singer Royalties
RZA is being sued by a singer who says he failed to pay her royalties for work she did over a seven year period. Dutch singer Thea Van Siejaen, who notably sang on the RZA track “Baby Boy” from the Unleashed soundtrack, recently filed a lawsuit against Prince Rakeem alleging the rapper/producer/film director failed to pay her for over a dozen songs, according to TMZ.
In the lawsuit, Siejaen says she was paid only a fraction of what she is owed for the services she rendered to RZA, from 2004-2011 but hasn’t spoken up until now for fear of being blacklisted in the music industry.
According to sources in RZA’s camp, “Unfortunately this is a groundless lawsuit by someone RZA had helped get off the streets, lent a helping hand to, and now thinks he’s an easy target to mark looking for money.”
