Rita Ora is suing Roc Nation and Rihanna might be partly to blame, Azealia Banks throws shade.
Bad gal, Riri.
Throw it up, throw it up. Watch it all fall out.Rita Ora filed a lawsuit against Roc Nation and Jay Z last week claiming they've significantly hurt her career due to their lack of support. The complaint reads:
"When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist. As Roc Nation's interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita's remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company."Ora also claims the company's vested interest in TIDAL is hogging the attention, but a new report says that's not the only entity stealing the spotlight... cue Rihanna. A new report from the The Sun suggests Roc Nation delivers the best demos to Riri first, and it's not sitting well with her. “Rihanna has never liked Rita and has been using her power at Roc Nation accordingly. This is the main reason the label’s execs have been uninterested in putting effort into promoting Rita," said a source. “Songs that might be submitted to her are automatically given to Rihanna, who may then hold them for months before deciding she doesn’t want them. The fact that Rita’s ex Calvin Harris is on their management books hasn’t helped either." Perhaps the feud inspired Ora to invite Chris Brown into the recording studio for her recent single "Body On Me?" Ora's filed complaint continues: "Rita's relationship with Roc Nation is irrevocably damaged. Fortunately for Rita, the California legislature had the foresight to protect its artists from the sorts of vicissitudes she's experienced with Roc Nation." It appears Ora got her wish, as she no longer appears on Roc Nation's website, social media or artist roster. Whether that's a response to last week's court papers or they've decided to allow Rita to walk away from her contract remains to be seen. Meanwhile, Azealia Banks went on Twitter to throw her daily shade. This time, The Navy believe it's aimed at Rihanna, who apparently had a collaboration in the works with Banks at some point.
These girls seek me out, ask for my help then get intimidated when they find out how easy it is for me to re-create and re-vamp their sound— azealiabanks (@AZEALIABANKS) December 23, 2015
Like, I would really rather not be approached to collab, especially if everyone is going to chicken out. Lol— azealiabanks (@AZEALIABANKS) December 23, 2015
