Remember when we told you that Rita Ora was suing her record label, the Jay? ?Z owned Roc Nation?

Well guess what the label is now counter suing her for breaking her record contract and failing to deliver promised albums. The label filed the $2.4 million Manhattan civil suit, six weeks after Ora sued the label in California claiming record execs pushed her aside when they started representing professional athletes.

In their suit Roc Nation counters that they spent over $2 million developing and marketing the former Jay Z protege’s still unreleased second album, saying that she was supposed to deliver a total of five albums when she signed with Roc Nation in 2008, but has only put out one.

Rita Ora is suing Jay Z’s Roc Nation record label claiming that the label has not been taking care of her since it expanded into sports management and other interests.

According to reports,

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.

Rita is seeking to be released from her contract with Roc Nation as attention has not been paid to her career, which has seen her release just one album in seven years.

She signed with the record label when she was 18 in 2008.

A reason has been given for that controversial elevator fight between Jay Z and Solange a Beyonce just looked calmly on last year. according to author J.Randy Taraborrelli, the fight was about Rihanna.

Taraborrelli has written an unauthorized biography about Beyonce and his book claims that Jay Z’s supposed relationship with Rihanna was a publicity stunt set up by his publicist, who made up the story to boost Riri’s career but that stunt cost Jay Z his relationship with Beyonce as they split for a year in 2005, because Bey believed he had an affair with then 16 year old Rih.

Beyonce came all the way through with her tittays in a plunging neckline dress, at the Tidal Chairty concert which went down a few hours ago [Oct. 21] at the Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York.
