Karrueche Tran is back in court fighting her former manager who claims he paid a ton of money to launch her career.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, the actress is denying the allegations brought by her former manager, Jacob York. Karrueche originally sued Jacob accusing him of owing her over $1.4 million from work. He counter-sued saying he spent more than that on expenses.
Karrueche is calling BS on his claims of spending over a million on her career. She claims to have satisfied all contractual obligations of their deal. The actress is demanding all claims against her be dismissed
As The Blast first reported, earlier this year, Karrueche sued Yaqwb Muhammed aka Jacob York and his company Electric Republic for screwing her out of $1.4 million owed to her.
In the lawsuit, Karrueche said she paid her ex-manager 20% commission off all projects and allowed him to collect the money. She claims to have recently discovered issues with the accounting. She went through the financial records and believes Jacob failed to pay her $267,000 for personal appearances and another $1.4 million in royalties from her makeup line with ColourPop.
Karrueche said, “Electric had only paid Tran $276,003.90 attributable to the Venture, thereby causing Tran to believe that the Venture had only generated approximately $345,004.87 in total revenues. Defendants encouraged this false belief by repeatedly misrepresenting to Tran that the Venture had not been particularly successful, and that her relatively low royalty payments were therefore to be expected. In truth, the Venture had been one of ColourPop’s most successful cosmetic lines to date.”
Jacob denied the allegations he owed Karrueche anything and never committed fraud. He then filed a counter-suit against the actress claiming he spent a ton of money funding her “lavish lifestyle.”
He claims to have spent a ton of money to “launch, promote and market” Karrueche’s “fledging career.” Jacob accuses Karrueche of owing him money for building her career in excess of the $1.4 million she claims to be owed.
The case is ongoing.
