Usher Raymond is no stranger to legal issues.
The superstar singer has been involved in domestic legal issues, entertainment copyright issues and more, so his attorneys always keep very busy.
Now… the singer is ‘caught up’ in yet another lawsuit stemming from his 2002 song of the same name.
Three men are claiming that they wrote the song “Caught Up” in 2002, played it for someone at Arista, who then played it for L.A. Reid. While they never cut a deal for the song… years later they heard it on the radio being sung by Usher.
Details about Usher’s latest song scandal+ watch a ‘Caught Up’ flashback performance below…
According to TMZ:
Three guys claim they wrote a song, “Caught Up” back in 2002. It’s about a man lost in love.
Usher recorded a song 2 years later called “Caught Up” … also about a man lost in love. It skyrocketed on the charts and was featured in his album, “Confessions.”
The 3 guys — Zacharia Edwards, Mitch Moses and Vince McClean — claim they played it for a honcho at Arista Records — Usher’s label — and the dude then played it for L.A. Reid.
The 3 guys never heard from Arista again, but 2 years later they heard the song on the radio. They’re suing for unspecified damages.
Welp… I guess that calls for a ‘Caught Up’ flashback…
