JAY says he’s owed for Trayvon Martin and Kalief Browder docuseries, while Em is reportedly asking for Southpaw payments
Eminem and JAY-Z are suing the Weinstein Company, Deadline.com reports.
Em’s lawsuit pertains to the 2015 movie Southpaw, which featured several original Eminem songs; Eminem also executive produced the soundtrack. According to Deadline, Eminem alleges that he is owed $352,000 for the use of “Phenomenal,” “Phenomenal 2,” and “Kings Never Die.” (TWC reportedly paid Eminem $48,000.)
In his lawsuit, JAY-Z reportedly claims that the Weinstein Company owes him at least $480,000.
JAY’s payments allegedly pertain to the Peabody-wining docuseries “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story” and the upcoming series “Rest in Power: The Trayvon Martin Story.”
JAY-Z signed a two-year first-look deal with the Weinstein Company back in 2016. This past March, TWC filed for bankruptcy, months after co-founder Harvey Weinstein was accused of sexual harassment and assault.
