Canadian singer Celine Dion said she felt betrayed after losing a millionaire lawsuit to businessman Rob Prinz, who has been responsible for organizing and managing her career over the past few years. The 52-year-old celebrity released a public statement deploring the determination of the California Labor Commission, the commission responsible for California’s labor law, which imposed a payment of at least $ 50 million, the equivalent of more than 265 million, for your ex-agent.
According to the website of the American TV station Kulr 8, of the $ 500 million accumulated by Dion in 2017, she is expected to pass 1.5% referring to the profits of her Las Vegas residence, 3% of the profits from her tour and 1 , 5% of the series of shows she performed in Quebec. She is also expected to deposit 10% of the amounts she has accumulated annually in the past three years with the former entrepreneur – which would give her $ 50 million for 2017 alone.
The statement released by Dion states: “I have paid Mr. Prinz many millions of dollars over the years. When all of this started, my team paid him generously a lot for the years to come, even though we were closing our contract and we were not going to renew. I am not saying that Mr. Prinz has done nothing, but he is receiving much more credit for my career than he deserves ”.
Then she claimed that the businessman claims to have performed functions performed by her husband, René Angélil (1942-2016): “When René was alive, he was the one who took care of my business and was always fair to everyone he worked with, teaching me how to do the same. As he was not here for this process, I feel that Mr. Prinz took advantage of his demand for money and confidential information from my contracts. I feel betrayed ”.
Dion’s legal team later confirmed to the international press the intention to appeal the Labor Commission decision. Lawyer Zia Modabber said: “With all due respect to the commission’s work, we understand that they have failed in this decision. They imposed an agreement with a businessman with whom she had not worked for years, as if an old agreement was still in effect ”.
“We are going to appeal the decision and we want a jury to decide what is right”, concludes the text released by the singer’s representatives.
