Ginuwine Sues Record Company For Fraud, Breach Of Contract
by Staff

R&B star Ginuwine is suing his record label for breach of contract and fraud.

The singer claims he was duped into signing a deal with former pal Michael Bourne's King Music Group, Inc. last year (07) - and he's yet to see any of the promised $500,000 (£250,000) advance.

Ginuwine - real name Elgin Baylor Lumpkin - signed a $1.75 million (£875,000) deal to record an album with the company, and then discovered there is no corporate record suggesting the label actually exists.

This is the second time the Pony hitmaker has filed suit against King Music and Bourne; a similar breach of contract action resulted in Ginuwine and label bosses settling out of court in 2007.

Now the singer claims Bourne defaulted on that settlement deal, and hasn't paid him what was agreed.

He claims the contract breach has caused significant damages to his career and kept him from professional opportunities.

In a statement, the singer's attorney Brandon Witkow says, "It is our belief that Mr. Bourne never intended to follow through with his and King Music Group's obligations. (c) WENN
