Spinderella filed suit against Salt-N-Pepa, her group mates of nearly 35 years. Spinderella claims the problems started with their ‘Best of’ album that came out in 1999. In the suit, she says she was promised one third of the royalties for the record, and even got a phone call telling her she would be getting $125k, but she never got it. Spinderella says she also got excluded from a VH1 TV show based on them. In the suit, she says she was promised one third of the group’s fee for the show and even though she got an occasional guest spot, she got way less than one-third. Spinderella says she got nothing for their appearance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards. The biggest thing though was this year. She was informed by SoundExchange, which collects and distributes royalties to artists, that Cheryl and Sandy were paid more over $600,000 in royalties over the last decade, but she hadn’t seen any money. Spinderella’s suing for trademark infringement. She says Salt-N-Pepa continue to use her to promote performances and fraud and breach of contract.
