Tyga Drops $10 Million Lawsuit Against Birdman

Tyga is ending his legal war with Cash Money.

The rapper has dropped his $10 million lawsuit against Birdman after he accused the Cash Money founder of not paying him royalties for years.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Tyga is voluntarily dismissing all claims against Cash Money and Young Money in the lawsuit.

The “Taste” rapper says he signed a deal in 2009 to produce two albums for the label—2012’s Careless World: Rise of the Last King and 2013’s Hotel California.

According to the lawsuit, Cash Money and Young Money agreed to pay Tyga in 2016 all the royalties that he says were owed to him for years, but his requests for payment were unsuccessful. He sued Cash Money for breach of contract and sought $10 million in damages.

Cash Money denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded the lawsuit be dropped. The two sides were negotiating a settlement, but those talks fell apart. Birdman later said Tyga was the one who owed Cash Money, claiming he was paid advances that were not recouped.

The case is now officially closed.

Tom Petty's Widow and His Two Daughters Are Now Fighting over His Estate

The battle for control of Tom Petty’s estate just got very, very ugly.

Dana Petty, Tom Petty’s widow, doesn’t exactly agree with his two grown adult daughters, Adria and Annakim.

So, she’s filed a civil lawsuit against them.

Filed in Los Angeles County court, Dana has accused Adria and Annakim of willfully attempting to frustrate her role as trustee.  Both daughters have made it ‘nearly impossible’ to manage the late singer’s estate.

Signaling out Adria, Dana claims Petty’s daughter has engaged in abusive behavior.  She has allegedly harassed Dana, the late singer’s managers, record labels, and his former bandmates. Her “erratic behavior,” for example, led to the delay of his posthumous Greatest Hits album.

In addition, Adria allegedly also held up the release of the 25th-anniversary reissue of his 1994 solo LP, Wildflowers.  Dana claims Adria ‘unfairly’ intervened in the deal with Warner Bros. Records.  She had rejected a $1 million offer for the album’s re-release.  The album would’ve included unreleased music.

Adria has fought back against these claims.

Filing her own petition, Tom Petty’s eldest daughter has claimed Dana has engaged in a conspiracy to prevent both her and Annakim from making key decisions.  Their father’s widow has deliberately failed to distribute Petty’s “artistic properties” into a limited liability company (LLC), per his will.

The LLC, Adria continues, would’ve allocated a third of Petty’s artistic properties to Dana.  The other two-thirds would legally belong to Adria and Annakim.

Adria has urged the court to order the funding for the LLC.  This would allow both of Petty’s daughters to have rights in the management of their father’s artistic property.

Adria’s petition notes Petty’s will has allowed Dana a six-month grace period to establish the fund.  Yet, over 16 months have already passed since he died.

The petition also notes Dana left both Adria and Annakim out of “marketing, promotional, and artistic considerations” in their father’s posthumous releases, including An American Treasure and The Best of Everything.
