JoJo -- Record Co. Won't Let Me 'Get Out'

8/21/2009 5:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

JoJoThat JoJo singer chick is finally old enough to file a lawsuit -- 18 -- and guess what?! She's already picking a legal war with her record company!

In a lawsuit just filed in NYC courts, JoJo claims her record company shoved her into a musical "limbo" because they wont let her out of her contract -- and they won't let her record a new album either!

JoJo, real name Joanna Levesque, now wants a judge to force Da Family Entertainment to cut her loose -- plus she wants at least $500,000 for her troubles.

Technically, I believe that now that she is 18 she can decide if she wishes to continue with the contracts that her parents(or others representing her) agreed to while she was a minor. Depending on how the contracts were written.

I hope she wins. I really do, just for the simple fact that it's been almost three years since the release of her last album. The Record Company looing for a distributer, that may be the case...but really...I don't think it takes a YEAR AND A HALF to find one. I don't think they're really trying their best to make sure the artists they sign are happy.

I hope she wins, the $500,000.00 may be a little much, but if she gets it...more power to her.

Keep on singin' JoJo...when you get a new label that is.
