Donald Glover Accuses Record Label of Screwing Him Out of Childish Gambino Royalties

Donald Glover says he will be suing his record label for allegedly taking excess cuts of his Childish Gambino royalties.

Glover is battling it out with his old record label, Glassnote Entertainment Group, over streaming royalties. Glassnote believes their deal with Glover entitles them to 50% of that money, Glover believes it does not.

Earlier this year, Glassnote filed legal docs asking a judge to make a decision on the matter.

According to new court documents obtained by The Blast, Glover says he “intends to assert counterclaims” to get the $700,000 in streaming royalties he believes he’s owed.

Glover also claims that an audit of Glassnote “determined that, for specified periods, Glassnote withheld or underreported royalties and other payments that should have been paid” to Glover.

The “Feels Like Summer” rapper claims “Glassnote‚Äôs multiple breaches under the License Agreement concern, among other things, the taking of excess distribution fees, underreporting of international revenues, deduction of excess producer royalties, underreporting of merchandise sales, and undocumented manufacturing expense charges.”

The matter remains ongoing.
