Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against singer Anita Baker, claiming she owes him more than $250,000
Grammy-winning singer-producer Babyface filed a lawsuit Tuesday April 11th, 2006 in Superior Court against singer Anita Baker, claiming she failed to pay him more than $250,000 for a song he co-wrote, produced and performed on her 2004 album "My Everything."
Detailing on the suit, Babyface further alleged that Baker broke two oral agreements with him over the song titled "Like You Used to Do". The star first of all claimed Baker refused to pay his royalties equaling at least $100,000 from an estimated more than 500,000 albums sold.
Babyface moreover claimed that he and Baker had an agreement to play four concerts together, but Baker canceled two shows and refused to pay $150,000 for those dates. Spokesman Cem Kurosman from Baker's label, Blue Note, declined to comment Friday, saying the label had no knowledge of the lawsuit.
