Pacquiao

Sued Over Music ...

To the Tune of $10 Mil

11/18/2010 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Manny Pacquiao just got hit with a $10 million lawsuit -- but not for breaking anyone's eye socket ... rather, because he allegedly screwed over a company that hired him to record music.

Manny Pacquiao Music Lawsuit
RBM Group International filed a lawsuit today against Manny in L.A. County Superior Court -- alleging the pound-for-pound boxing champ signed a contract in 2009 in which he promised to record 12 songs ... but never did.

In the docs, RBM claims they wrote Pacquiao a $40,000 check in October of '09 -- which he deposited -- in return for the first two songs ... but the boxer has refused to record the music.

RBM claims they're out of pocket $200,000 ... and they've lost profits in the amount of $10 mil.

Calls to Manny's people have not been returned.

UPDATE: If you've never heard Manny sing ... check out the video.

i've always said that pac's legal adviser atty. gacal is as useful as an appendix. you can cut it off an throw it into the fire and it'll be ok. it might even make you feel good.

pac is still paying golden boy promotions for a previous screw-up and now he may have to fork over settlement money which otherwise could have gone to projects pac likes to do for his constituents.

To those who think $10M is pocket change, you're idiots!

Manny made $16M guaranteed on his last fight, plus PPV Sales. Assuming he makes another 10M on PPV, the $10M lawsuit will take up over 30% of his takings... yes, he has sponsors, but it will sting if he loses. He's a millionaire, not a billionaire! Dumbass

@Carl    

@Carl TMZ is correct that Pac is the pound for pound boxing champ. He's the #1 pound for pound champ not only in his division but in the entire boxing in general.
