Gospel Duo Mary Mary

Accused of Stiffing Manager

... Making God Sad

What would Jesus say? Gospel duo Mary Mary enlisted a manager to revamp their careers, then screwed him over as soon as they made it big again ... at least according to a new lawsuit.

Maximum Artist Group  -- owned by manager Mitchell Solarek -- filed a federal lawsuit in Tennessee against Mary Mary, aka Erica Campbell and Tina Campbell.

In docs, Mitchell says he inked a deal with the duo in 2011 and helped "reignite" their career ... securing deals worth over $3 million, including their WeTV reality show.

In return, Mitchell says the Christian singers went all Judas on him -- publicly firing him on their TV show, and withholding more than $75,000 in commissions.

Mitchell is suing for all that dough, and the loss of future commissions from music, merchandising, books and sponsorships.

Now here's Mitch before the axe came down ...

They always did treat Mitchell like crap, and allowed people within their family to treat him badly. Mitchell put up with a lot especially from that sister/stylist who was so disrespectful to him on a regular basis. Don't how after that show anyone else would want to deal with al that,good luck Mitchell.

If he did the work, he deserves his money. Regardless of what happened between them afterwards.

Church as a business pollutes many singers who begin clean and are sucked into the same politics as secular show business. Jesus is no excuse and if you meet Him I wonder how He feels about being used to scam.

Those are some of the nicest women I've ever met in the celebrity world. Graceful and talent ladies. I don't believe they would just railroad someone. It's juts not their nature. Perhaps there is some miscommunication or misunderstanding. I think if anyone has been railroaded it's them for helping so many people and sharing their accomplishment and achievement.

Well known artist end up in a lot of business rifs.

No what these ladies did was straight up messed up. They got greedy come on hiring the husband to be Erica new manager. And she knew it would be hard to be working with Mitch on the Mary Mary. So she wanted him out.
