Olivia Newton-John Filed Suit Over "Grease" Royalties



Olivia Newton-John is suing Universal Music for allegedly failing to pay more than $US1 million ($A1.27 million) in royalties on sales of the "Grease" soundtrack album.

Olivia Newton-John filed a lawsuit Friday Dec 1st in Los Angeles County Superior court, suing Universal Music for allegedly failing to pay more than $US1 million ($A1.27 million) in royalties on sales of the "Grease" soundtrack album.

An English-born Australian singer and actress, Olivia starred in the 1978 movie version of the Broadway hit alongside actor John Travolta.

Per the suit, it is obvious that Universal owes more than $US1 million to Newton-John's company, ON-J Productions, Ltd.

However, Universal tends to claim the suit as "without merit", saying "at the appropriate time, we expect that the court will dismiss it."
