divorce and he owed hundreds of thousands in taxes
Then on January 30th, the federal court judge came back and sided with Ginuwine — stating the singer didn’t owe his ex-manager anything in commissions. He said that the agreement they had was mutually abandoned by the both men back in 1996. Further, the judge noted that Reives never raised any issues with the singer about commissions over the years until recently. The order dismissed the entire lawsuit against Ginuwine and Reives was awarded nothing.
Then on February 13th, Ginuwine headed back to court to plea with the judge to order his ex-manager to pay his legal bills he racked up defending himself. The singer explains that he had attempted to make a settlement agreement with Reives back in 2013, but he refused and dragged the case on.
He says that his current legal bill total $192,636.95 and he argues Reives filed the lawsuit knowing he had no rights to any commissions and therefore should be ordered to pay the legal bill for his lawyers.
The judge will make a decision on his motion in the next couple weeks.
