BOSSIP Exclusive: Dru Hill Wins $1 Million Breach Of Contract Case

Dru Hill Said Kedar Entertainment Bungled Promotion For Comeback Album & Never Paid Them

Dru Hill has won a case by default that accused their record company of botching their comeback albums and screwing them out of royalties, BOSSIP can reveal.

A New York federal judge ruled in the 1990s group’s favor by default in their $1 million breach of contract case against Kedar Entertainment Group after the record company never bothered to respond to the singers’ suit.

The men said they signed deals with the company for two new albums, and Kedar promised to spend a minimum of $300,000 on promoting each one, 2010’s “InDRUpendence Day,” and Sisqo’s “Last Dragon,” which dropped earlier this year.

But the suit said Kedar didn’t spend anywhere close to that amount, and in turn, Dru Hill lost millions in record sales, live shows and publishing profits.

Dru Hill also complained that they never saw a dime of their advances and royalties from the records.

Kedar Entertainment – headed by former Motown Records honcho Kedar Massenburg – had a month to answer Dru Hill’s lawsuit, but never did.

Dru Hill’s lawyer, Lita Rosario, asked the judge to issue a default judgment against the record company, and on Nov. 24, the judge ruled in Dru Hill’s favor, which means Kedar Entertainment is on the hook for a million in damages and must release Dru Hill from the contract.
