Teddy Riley, the R&B singer and acclaimed producer, has reportedly sued Lady Gaga for unpaid monies associated with a song “Teeth.”
The song was released in 2009 and Riley maintains that the singer didn’t pay all the fees he was due.
The Virginia-based producer says he was due 25% of the writing fees on the song, which appeared on Gaga’s The Fame Monster album.
Riley is suing for $500,000 plus punitive damages.
Teddy Riley’s producer chops go way back to the 80′s with Hip-Hop and the New Jack Swing movement he pioneered.
