Rita Ora is SUING Jay Z’s record label Roc Nation.

The singer, 25, claims the label no longer has much of an interest in supporting her as a musician following its diversification into sports management and filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday. The 25-year-old singer signed to the record label in 2008 but has only released one album since then, and says the company’s change in direction led to her being forgotten about.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the complaint states: ‘When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist. ‘Rita’s remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company.’ The ‘seven year rule’ was one employed by actress Olivia De Haviland in 1944 in a successful bid to end her contract with Warner Bros. studios, which helped lead to the end of the movie studio era. But I’m happy that I delayed the album because otherwise I don’t think the people who haven’t heard my music would have the right impression of me because that isn’t who I am.” Fortunately for Rita, the California legislature had the foresight to protect its artists from the sorts of vicissitudes she’s experienced with Roc Nation.’
