Azealia Banks is suing her ex-manager Jeff Kwatinetz, the CEO of Prospect Park. The storied rapper says Kwatinetz acted like he was romantically interested in her in order to finesse her out of money.
Now, Banks is reportedly counter-suing her ex-manager for fraud and breach of contract.
The court filing by Banks says Kwatinetz “attempted to control and manipulate Banks so he could eventually steal from her, by charming the 23-year-old from Harlem and attempting to convince her that he loved her.”
Along with that, Banks says the ex-manager was “blurring the lines between a fiduciary and a romantic suitor so that he could take financial advantage.”
The rapper says she was only paid $15,344.94 for her debut album, although it earned $1,490,460 in profits. A court date has been set for February 1, 2022. Stay tuned for more updates.
