Lawyer says singer Anita Baker owes him money
The Associated Press
DETROIT (AP) A lawyer who represented Anita Baker against allegations that she failed to pay for work done on her Detroit-area home is suing the singer, saying she owes him money.
Jamal Hamood filed a $150,000 lawsuit against Baker on Monday in Wayne County Circuit Court.
It was Hamood who earlier this year said Baker was wrongly accused by a company that says the Grammy-winning vocalist owes it $15,000.
Now, Hamood tells WXYZ-TV (http://bit.ly/1pDIIlz ) Baker owes him for more than a year of work. According to Hamood, Baker owes him nearly $69,000 for salary, travel and other expenses.
A message seeking comment was left Tuesday with a representative of Baker's record label. She does not have a listed telephone number.
A status conference on the lawsuit is scheduled for Jan. 2.
