The former manager of singer Jessie J is claiming that he is entitled to 20 percent of her earnings for life.
Raymond Stevenson of record label Art 19 who discovered Jessie 8 years ago told The Evening Standard,
“We took her round to major record labels, they weren’t sure and didn’t quite get it. It took a while to get the record labels’ ears and we eventually took her America to speak to executives out there.
“Five years is a long time to develop someone and I’m glad she is reaping the rewards of what we have done.
“What we do is a lot more holistic than just singing, it is about self-discovery. It is about getting the person to be the best they can be and project great vocals and emotions.”
Stevenson added that the 20 percent deal appears in a management contract drawn up when he started working with the singer, and that Universal Republic and Crown Management, who are now looking after the 23-year-old, have accepted its terms, although neither party was available for comment when contacted today.

20 percent for life? Oh dear, oh dear! I wonder if Universal Republic and Crown Management intend on actually honouring the contract, or are they in the process of instructing their top-notch lawyers to find a loop-hole in the contract?
