Scott Storch Sued By Singer For Allegedly Being Too "Drugged Out" To Produce Album
Scott Storch's well-documented drug problem rears its ugly head in the courtroom.
Scott Storch, who in the late 2000s was one of the most sought-after producers in the Hip Hop game, is now being sued by a singer who claims she paid him money to produce her album, but that Storch never delivered because of his rampant drug abuse.
TMZ reports that aspiring singer Treena Ruberg agreed to pay Storch $45,000 in October 2011 for six songs, $30,000 of which was paid up front.
The lawsuit claims that Storch "continued to have a drug addiction and other personal problems which rendered him incapable of producing any recordings," despite the producer stating he was now "cured of his past problem" with drugs.
Ruberg is suing for the $30,000, in addition to $70,000 for out-of-pocket expenses including plane flights, studio time, and having to hire another producer.
