Jill Scott is being sued by her record label, Hidden Beach, which is accusing her of skipping out halfway through a six-album contract and potentially owing millions of dollars in damages.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court by Hidden Beach Records on February 3, claims that the label and its founder, Steve McKeever, helped launch Scott's career and turned her into a Grammy-winning singer-songwriter. "Hidden Beach is shocked by her decision not only because Scott has apparently chosen to leave the Hidden Beach family," the complaint reads, "but also because Scott is contractually required to deliver three more albums to Hidden Beach."
