Becky G has filed a hefty lawsuit as more drama surrounding controversial music producer Dr. Luke gets brought to the surface too. See, Becky was signed to Dr. Luke’s label and was someone the 21-year-old songstress used to work with, but she’s claiming he used her to help promote Core, a brand of water he owns a big part of, and she wants the share of money she feels she deserves.
According to court documents, Core is reportedly in the process of being sold for hundreds of millions of dollars and Becky feels she would be paid what a brand ambassador should receive, which could range between 20 and 50 percent. Becky said she was promised a stock in the company but now that this deal is in the works, she is suing Core to make sure she gets her fair share.
The “Shower” singer goes on to claim that she feels Dr. Luke basically used her as a “singing billboard” to help promote the brand once she started gaining fame, having the water often promoted on Becky’s social media accounts and in her music videos. Becky claims that she didn’t have much of a choice when it came to how much she had to promote Core water, as Dr. Luke was in control of her career and allegedly made it seem like the release of her album was in the balance if she didn’t take part in the Core promo. As longtime Becky fans know, the songstress has yet to ever release a full-length album. And Dr. Luke — whose real name is Lukasz Gottwald — has been involved in legal drama before, as Kesha sued the 45-year-old producer in an attempt to free herself from her music contract so she could work with other labels, claiming he was sexually, physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive to her.
Meanwhile, Becky isn’t letting any of this stop her from being the boss babe she is. The starlet has an upcoming makeup collaboration coming out on Dec. 5 with Colour Pop called the Salvaje Collection. Plus, she’s been slaying the Latin music scene with her recent hits “Booty” and “Sin Pijama.” So girl is doing just fine and hopefully, the drama surrounding this lawsuit gets settled soon.
