Back in March, Jhené Aiko was slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly stiffing her former tour manager out of more than $50,000 in expenses.
In the suit, according to The Blast, Joshua Williams claimed Aiko insisted he use his personal credit card to foot the bill for a slew of tour expenses under the pretense that she would pay him back. However, after Williams racked up a $50,000 bill, he said he was never reimbursed.
Now, just five months later, Aiko is firing back at her old manager, accusing him of exploiting her image for his own personal gain. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In new docs obtained by the publication, Aiko says Williams had been posing as her booking agent to “raise the status and representation” for his own business ventures, and in turn, tarnished her reputation by making it seem like she breached her contract with her real booking agency, ICM.
As part of Williams’ plot, according to AIko, he plastered her face on his website, and even used the money, in which he is suing Aiko for, to book luxury hotels and services for his other clients.
Williams has yet to respond to Aiko’s claim.
