AceShowbiz - After her deal was widely spread on the Internet, Summer Walker finally set the record straight. The "Still Over It" artist took to her Instagram account to weigh in on the chatter regarding her record deal with LVRN, which allegedly contains about her not owning her masters and only receiving 15 percent of her royalties.

"I've been seeing a lot of chatter online," the singer wrote on Monday, November 8. "I didn't say anything because I wanted to stay focused on releasing my album. Now let me clear the air. What that article said is not my current record deal. Over the years my deal has changed many times. I've always had my own representation and full support from LVRN."

"Thank you to my fans for always having my back and for all of the love ya'll keep showing my new album. Appreciate y'all!!" she added.
