Come for Ne-Yo’s coins, and Ne-Yo will come for you!
The Daily News is reporting that the Grammy winner is suing his ex-manager Kevin Foster for “moving money” without his permission.
In a lawsuit placed with Manhattan federal court, Ne-Yo claims Foster (who began handling Ne-Yo’s funds in 2005) forged his name (Shaffer Smith) to get loans, as well as invested his money into a failing water company that was on the verge of bankruptcy.
Ne-Yo is seeking $4.5 million and $3.5 million in fees, the amount he says was paid to Foster during the tenure as his manager.
Reps from neither Ne-Yo or Foster’s camps were reached for comment.
