Say it ain’t so! American Idol‘s favorite general, Larry Platt, is being sued over his big audition hit, “Pants on the Ground,” TMZ reports.
A company called American King Music is saying they gave the General money for a recording session with rapper/producer Mims in order to turn out a full-length version of the song Larry made famous on Idol.
TMZ says American King claims in the lawsuit, filed in Atlanta, that Larry and his reps, “failed to take care of Platt’s obligations.”
Now, American King is suing over the music distribution agreement and expenses related to producing, writing and recording of the single.
TMZ cites Larry’s manager, Pinky, who insists he’d never signed a contract with the music company. However, American King thinks they should get 50 percent of Larry’s profits from iTunes.
