New Edition Sued Over Tour, Management Claims Six Figure Loss

New Edition is facing a six figure lawsuit while on tour.

According to Page Six, the group fired their management just prior to heading out on the road, cutting management group, Benchmark Entertainment, out of the cut they were to receive from the tour totaling around $500,000.

"The Boston-born R&B group New Edition whose hits include “Candy Girl” and “Cool It Now” hired Benchmark Entertainment in 2012 to promote their 31st anniversary tour this summer. Benchmark launched a website, found a VIP ticketing company to increase sales, hired a publicist, worked with set designers and organized the tour, according to court papers. But the managers were dumped in June just days before the national tour launched," Page Six reports.

As previously reported, Bobby Brown quit the tour in July claiming that he couldn't keep up with the dance routine.

Benchmark Entertainment claims they are owed a 12.5 percent cut of tour revenue in the suit.
