Roc Nation countersues Rita Ora...

Jay​ ​Z's music label Roc Nation has filed a $2.4 million Manhattan civil lawsuit against Rita Ora for breaking her recording contract.

Last December, Rita sued for her release from the label, citing a lack of attention to her music and career. Now Roc Nation says they spent over $2 million developing and marketing her unreleased second album. She was contracted to sell a total of five albums when she signed with Roc Nation in 2008, but has only put out one. They credit themselves for giving her a chance when she was a struggling “unknown singer.” They claim to have “tirelessly” promoted her career, investing millions of dollars in marketing, recording and other costs. Roc Nation says it filed the countersuit in Manhattan because her contact specifies that any litigation between the parties must take place in New York.

Rita’s attorney, Howard King reveals:
“Jay Z has personally and graciously promised Rita complete freedom from Roc Nation, the details of which are now being finalized. We believe that Roc Nation’s distributor, Sony Music, has required Roc Nation to file this action to preserve whatever rights Sony might have pending resolution.” 
Welp! It's a known fact that Jay Z was using her career to mop Rihanna's floor but did he really have to sue the poor girl for her net worth?

Is Rita's Stateside music career over before it begun?
