From contactmusic.com: Hogan Sued Over Song Credit
HULK HOGAN’s singer daughter BROOKE is facing legal action from her former producers over allegations she failed to properly credit them for work completed for her 2009 album THE REDEMPTION.
Pop star and reality TV regular Brooke Hogan is being sued by bosses at Jamaican production company J 2 over the instrumental for the track Trust Me, which featured on the album.
The 22 year old is accused of failing to give due credit in the liner notes of the record, which instead named one of Hogan’s associates as the producer of the song.
J 2 executives filed suit in Manhattan federal court in New York on Thursday (29Jul10) and they are seeking at least $200,000 (Ãƒâ€š£133,330) in compensation, according to the New York Post.
