Scotty McCreery is facing some legal trouble. A lawsuit filed last week in Tennessee claims the American Idol champ is refusing to pay management company Cassetty Entertainment for services rendered.
Music industry vet Todd Cassetty runs the business and signed Scotty as the firm’s flagship artist last October. According to the suit, Todd alleges that Scotty offered to pay him 15 percent of all gross revenues, but Scotty’s mom Judy stepped in and offered only 2 percent. Todd started managing Scotty, but an official agreement was never firmed up, and the parties parted ways in April.
A statement from Scotty reads, “There is no truth to these allegations. I have offered to pay Todd more than once, but he wanted an unreasonable amount for only five months of work. Anyone who knows me knows how I conduct myself, so I am not worried they will believe any of this. This is just an attempt to embarrass me and my family. The facts will come out when we have our day in court.”
