Jay Z is heading back to court. According to USA Today,
Rapper Jay Z is suing the former owners of TIDAL, claiming that they gave him inflated subscription information when he initially purchased the music streaming service last year. TIDAL told the publication in a statement, “It became clear after taking control of TIDAL and conducting our own audit that the total number of subscribers was actually well below the 540,000 reported to us by the prior owners. As a result, we have now served legal notice to parties involved in the sale. While we cannot share further comment during active legal proceedings, we’re proud of our success and remain focused on delivering the best experience for artists and fans.”
Hov is now seeking $15 million from the company’s ex-owner, Aspiro and its major shareholders, Schibsted Media Group and Verdane Capital.
