KENNY 'BABYFACE' EDMONDS is suing singer Anita Baker for allegedly failing to pay him for a song he produced for her.
The lawsuit, which was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (13APR06), claims Baker refused to pay him producer's fees and royalties for the track LIKE YOU USED TO DO.
Babyface claims he also co-wrote the song with Baker, according to website TMZ.com.
The song featured on Baker's MY EVERYTHING album, which reached gold record status.
Babyface also alleges the GIVING YOU THE BEST THAT I GOT singer entered into an verbal agreement with him to perform at her concerts in Los Angeles, Detroit, Michigan, New York City and Chicago in June and July 2005.
The suit states Babyface performed in Los Angeles and New York City before Baker cancelled the shows in Detroit and Chicago.
Babyface claims Baker was supposed to pay him $75,000 (GBP43,000) for each of the four concerts, but he was only paid $150,000 (GBP86,000).
He is demanding an additional $150,000 (GBP86,000) for the concerts Baker cancelled.
The suit asks for at least $250,000 (GBP143,000), plus royalties and legal fees.
