Jessie J forced to pay axed manager 1mn pounds
London: Singer Jessie J has been made to pay 1million pounds to her former manager whom she dumped before she got big in the music world.
Raymond Stevenson discovered the star at the tender age of 15 and came up with her trademark swagger.
The ` Price Tag ` hit maker and her management corporation had been in dispute with the music mogul for almost two years but will now finally meet his demands, the Sun reported.
The coach on BBC1`s ` The Voice` will hand over 20 per cent of her earnings from hit album `Who You Are`, said to currently total 5million pounds.
Last night a music industry source told the publication that this was an absolutely massive payout and Jessie is signed to the type of huge label whosually just get what they want.
The insider revealed that Ray is extremely well respected, but he runs a relatively small operation and Jessie`s people thought he would just roll over.
Last night Jessie and 141a released a joint statement saying that the parties have reached an amicable resolution.
Stevenson added that the management company is very proud of the star`s
achievements and she is a very talented artist.
