Skinner Loses Contracts

THE STREETS singer MIKE SKINNER has been slapped with a series of legal fees after losing vital recording contracts in an all-night drinking session.

The 26-year-old DRY YOUR EYES star - who misplaced the documents after signing rap duo THE MITCHELL BROTHERS to his label THE BEATS - was stunned when lawyers forced him to paid out more money to reproduce the required papers.

He says, "I finally got my s**t together to give them a contract and of course we had to sign it in a pub.

"A few weeks later and the lawyers ring asking where the contracts are.

"Can we remember? Can we f**k! We were in the pub and one thing led to another. Cue a whole load more contracts being drawn up and more money to those robbing legal b**tards."
