En Vogue Sued For $100 million After Dropping Label, Signing With New One

En Vogue performs 3En Vogue has been in the news lately, and not because of another album or a new track, but for being sued by their former record label for more than $100 million!

Rene Moore, Rufftown Entertainment founder and owner, has filed the lawsuit against the R&B girl group claiming that En Vogue has failed to abide by a deal.

According to legal documents, Moore alleges to have spent an amount of nearly $200,000 in 2010 to fund the major comeback of En Vogue, and it included three originals members— Cindy Heron, Maxine Jones and Terry Ellis. The deal included a new album and a tour.

Sources confirmed that in 2011, video footage showed the trio asserting that they were working on the album. But as it turns out, the ’90s group never managed to complete the album, nor did they execute a tour that was planned to promote their come back.

Unfortunately for Rufftown Entertainment, the money was pledged in vain, as En Vogue abandoned the project while in the middle of working on it.

Sadly, not only did they abandon the project, but they went on to sign with another label, Pyramid Records, in 2014.

Moore says that the ladies’ indecorous decision has cost her a fortune, so she waged the beginning of a legal battle against En Vogue, as well as their new label ‘Pyramid Records’.

The lawsuit claims that since the singing group failed to honor the deal with Rufftown Entertainment, they will have to pay for the losses that their former label incurred.

En Vogue seems to be going through a crisis. In addition to legal issues, news spread earlier that one of the original members of En Vogue, Maxine Jones, is no longer an active member.

But this is not the first time that the R&B group has been involved in a lawsuit. Last year, Dawn Robinson, an ex-member, threatening to sue Lifetime for its holiday movie, En Vogue Christmas.

En Vogue has not come forward to comment on the latest lawsuit that they are facing.
