More money problems

Lauryn Hill? Money troubles? Why we never.

The embattled rapper and R&B singer is heading back to court over accusations that she failed to pay somebody. This time it’s not the federal government but a trombone player who claims that he’s owed money for studio time and a breached contract.

According to TMZ Lauryn is being sued by Matthew Hartnett, who claims he laid some tracks down for Hill over the summer. The sessions went so well that Hartnett said Lauryn’s team offered him a touring contract. Hartnett said that he was fired before the tour started, but is owed a kill fee of at least half of the contract. He also said that he was never paid for his studio time.

In the lawsuit that also names Hill’s manager and touring company, Hartnett is asking for $4,000 for his studio time and $11,521.60 overall.
