Scotty McCreery Being Sued By Former Manager
Uh oh. Lawsuits aren’t ever good. American Idol season 10 winner, Scotty McCreery, is being sued by his former manager, Todd Cassetty, due to “unpaid services.” The 19-year old country singer has fired back with statements of his own.
Allegedly, Cassetty claims he should have been paid at a rate of 15-20 percent which is the “industry standard,” but McCreery’s mother, Judy, only offered him 2 percent. Scotty made his own statement about the disagreement: “There is no truth to these allegations,” he said. “I have offered to pay Todd more than once, but he wanted an unreasonable amount for only five months of work. Anyone who knows me knows how I conduct myself, so I am not worried they will believe any of this. This is just an attempt to embarrass me and my family. The facts will come out when we have our day in court.”
According to Country Weekly, Cassetty is seeking punitive damages from McCreery as well has payment of the legal costs. Whether Scotty is in the right or wrong, he surely is getting a taste of the nasty side of the music industry.
