Contrary to the reality tv show, Brooke Hogan (daughter of wrestling superstar Hulk Hogan) doesn’t seem to know what’s best. A lawsuit has been filed in Manhattan, USA against the Sobe Entertainment artiste for failing to compensate nor credit Jam 2 Productions, members Jammy James (Jam 2) & Camar Doyles (Flavaunit) who were approached in 2006/2007 for production work on her sophomore album, “The Redemption” which was released in 2009.
The production also included a song performed & written by Camar Doyles aka Flavaunit entitled “Come On, Come, On,” back in 2001. Brooke and Sobe used the song, but changed it up, adding her own lyrics, and changing the name of the song to “Trust Me”. Again, Brooke and Sobe said they’d pay and credit Jam 2 Productions, which to this day has not been forthcoming.
Jam 2 Productions became alerted when the song “Trust Me” was deleted from their MySpace account claiming a Copyright Infringement. Jam 2 Productions immediately contacted their lawyer Jon Jekielek in New York who immediately issued 2 letters to SoBe Entertainment which both returned unanswered. Mr. Jekeilek was then instructed to take full action and on Monday August 2, 2010, a formal lawsuit was issued in court.
The claim is at a sum of $200,000 USD including punitive damages for failure to pay and credit Jam 2 Productions on the musical composition, melody & lyrics of the song “Trust Me” which is performed by Brooke Hogan on the album “The Redemption”.
Updates on this matter will be released as things progress.
