Studdard Sues -- Not Everything Peachy Keen

1/30/2008 2:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Fallen "Idol" Ruben Studdard can barely find a place to sing for his supper these days, and now he's suing a concert promoter called Peachez Inc., and he's asking for more than lunch money!
Ruben Studdard
In a lawsuit filed in New York Supreme Court, the "Idol" star wants $45,000 from Peachez, alleging breach of contract. The Dallas-based company describes itself as "a specialty marketing company" with clients in the "entertainment industry." We've called Ruben's lawyers and Peachez, but so far, we haven't gotten a response.

It's all going downhill for Ruben, who just got canned by his record label after his latest album tanked.

Ruben has an excellent voice! The only down side to his singing career is that he hasn't worked with a label that can specilize in his style. He is better of pursuing a new label. J Records did not serve him justice for the type of singer he is. For one, Ruben is not a hip hop or pop singer. He is a smooth R & B and gospel singer and when he works with a Entertainment label that understands that he'll do better than he has before.

What the hell happen to this guy?? He was the one who won AI and now he can't keep his career afloat! I think his next angle at fame should be a spokesperson for some weight loss company.

Whadduya think?

Stuudard has an awesome voice. But, unfortunelty in Hollywood it is shallow and supercial. If he were an anorexic pencil stick size the promoters would be tripping over him to sign him up and produce a CD.

Ruben haa a great voice. A soulful voiice. He is not what America expects as a superstar. It is shame that people do not or refuse not to see beyond the outside of a person. People --- do you see how shallow people really are? A larger person with a great voice vs. someone thinner with a not so good voice -- we all know who wins out in the long run. I feel Ruben has a much better voice than alot of those guys now on American Idol.

If this guy spent half his time working as he does bringing lawsuits, he would be doing just fine! I can think of 4 or 5 times he has sued someone....beginning right after he won AI when he sued the man who was making him those "225" or whatever area code shirts he wore! What a mindset.

Unfortunately society is still into the image thing. Rueben does not have the image that America wants. After Levert and Luther I doubt if you will se too many large male singers. In addition his age group is not into his music. He is an idol winner 16-30 year olds. They don't know how to appreciate his songs. His song "Beautiful" is great but you have to listen to the lyrics and most people don't. Shame because the songs that I have heard him sing all have good messages behind them.
