Geno Sims recently filed papers in New York's Manhattan Supreme Court accusing the Goldie hitmaker of failing to pay him $850,000 (£531,250) in commission.

Sims claims he is owed the funds for helping to set up brand partnerships with companies such as Adidas and Samsung and other publishing and production deals for the hip-hop star from 2011 to 2013, and he is demanding a jury trial, according to

Rocky, real name Rakim Mayers, has yet to comment directly on the claims, but he is seeking to have a judge seal the case to keep it private after taking issue with Sims listing his home address on the complaint, potentially jeopardising his security.
