Mary J. Blige Lawsuit

I'm A First Class Star

So Treat Me Like One

Mary J. Blige
is a big star who deserves to be treated like a big star and if you try to sue her ...she will try to crush you in court like the big star that she is -- at least that's how it seems in new legal docs.

MJB is firing back at Vision Entertainment Worldwide -- a company that sued her for bailing on a concert last December ... to the tune of $145K which was her advance.

Mary's response -- sue me ... sue you!  In her countersuit, MJB says if anybody breached the contract ... it was VEW -- because it failed to provide first-class air travel for her and her crew ...  because that's what an artist of her stature deserves.

She has absolutely no plans to give back the $145K ... in fact ... she's demanding the company pay her the balance of the deal -- $105,000.

Mary don't fly coach.

This is what happens when crackhead ghetto trash become famous. They have no education, no common sense, no sense of respect. And, much like panhandlers living on the streets, they expect something for free -- i.e., Mary wanting the balance of the "deal" she failed to fulfill.

She reminds me of Mo'Nique, who refused to publicize "Precious" unless she was paid to do so. That piece of garbage was so uneducated that she thought she deserved a paycheck to show up at film festivals and press conferences. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey hauled her ass to every one of them while also promoting an album.

Mo'Nique won the Oscar, but can anyone name the movies she's been in since? Well?

Goodbye, Mary. Goodbye.

wha? Isnt she the one who always cried rivers about her awful past and how abused she was or something, how terrible her life was and how blessed she is and is always giving back now, all about compassion blablablah. When filming "One" with U2 (thats her right?) she was portrayed like humble grounded humanitarian. Is anything authentic in LA anymore ffs... People behaving like her should be put in institutions and resocialized. Shes basically a ghetto neanderthal, a primitve semi-human, a human trash.

This isn't even a complete story or article or statement for that matter. So much info missing from your talentless writing staff.

Expectations are not legally binding. If the travel arrangements are not specified in the contract, then you have to settle for what you get. Sounds like her manager was too anxious to make the deal and didn't take enough time to working out the deals.
