R&B producer Teddy Riley filed a lawsuit against his former band mates of Blackstreet.
He says the members in question have used the group’s name illegally, since he’s half the owner of the group’s trademark. Chauncey Hannibal is the other “Blackstreet” owner.
According to the lawsuit, Mark Middleton and Eric Williams have used the group’s name to book performances, including a claim to the Blackstreet name in November, without getting the proper permission.
Lawyers for both Riley and Hannibal have sent cease and desist letters, but the other have just ignored them.
