The Voice: Prince Sued for Allegedly Stealing Judith Hill

The Tonight Show with Jay Leno - Season 21

Remember the recent story about The Voice season 4 alum, Judith Hill, recording a record with Prince?

It appears that the singer already has a contract in place with Sony records. The producer who was set to work with Judith is suing Prince for “regular” and “punitive” damages. Via TMZ

Prince shamelessly stole a recording artist away from the producer who discovered Lady Gaga … and her company is now going after The Purple One in court.

Singer Judith Hill made a name for herself on “The Voice” in 2013. Sony got interested in her. Ditto Jolene Cherry, the famed producer who first eyed Lady Gaga. Sony and Cherry partnered and claim they signed her to an exclusive recording deal.

A few months ago, Sony and Cherry heard rumblings that Hill was meeting with Prince for a recording session. They warned her to stop earlier this month, only to learn that she and Prince recorded an entire album — 11 songs — and released it Monday as a free Internet download.

Cherry is now going after Prince with a vengeance, courtesy of her lawyer Larry Stein, asking not only for regular damages but punitive damages for underhandedness.

Can somebody be sued for “underhandedness?” No doubt Prince, who has taken plenty of legal action himself over the years, is set to vigorously defend himself.
