Wu-Tang Clan’s RZA has found himself in hot water after a Dutch singer has sued him over unpaid royalties for multiple songs recorded for the rapper.
As reported by TMZ, Dutch songstress Thea Van Seijaen has filed suit, alleging that she only received a fraction of what she is owed for 14 tracks she recorded between 2004 and 2011 for RZA.
According to the lawsuit, the singer, who is best known for the vocals she provided on RZA’s track “Baby Boy” that appeared in Jet Li’s movie, Unleashed, was fearful to ask for the money owed due to the fact that she was afraid that RZA would have her blackballed from the music industry.
An unknown source close to RZA gave a statement on the lawsuit that was filed, as they stated:
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.
Thea Van Seijaen is seeking retribution of an unknown amount for all 14 tracks, which she says that was never paid in full for.
