‘BABYFACE’ FILES SUIT Vs. ANITA BAKER

Say this isn’t so!…

Fri Apr 14, 7:00 PM ET

Grammy-winning singer-producer Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds has filed a breach of contract lawsuit against singer Anita Baker, claiming she owes him more than $250,000.

According to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in Superior Court, Baker broke two oral agreements with Edmonds, who co-wrote, produced and performed on the song “Like You Used to Do” on Baker’s 2004 album “My Everything.”

The lawsuit claims Baker refused to pay Edmonds producer’s royalties equaling at least $100,000 from an estimated more than 500,000 albums sold.

Edmonds, 47, also alleges that he and Baker had an agreement to play four concerts together, but that Baker canceled two shows and refused to pay $150,000 for those dates.

“Artists are used to working with producers, making the albums and doing the paperwork later ... It’s always an oral agreement in this business,” Edmonds’ attorney Howard King said Friday.

Spokesman Cem Kurosman from Baker’s label, Blue Note, declined to comment Friday, saying the label had no knowledge of the lawsuit.

Edmonds has written hits for a number of R&B stars, including Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige and Bobby Brown.
