For those wondering like myself where India.Arie has been here is your answer. She's been in a heated court battle with her former manager. Read more below:
According to a lawsuit filed earlier this year in federal court in Tennessee, Noreen Nalli served as India.Arie's manager from 2005-2009, when she claims Arie dumped her without notice.
The two are now involved in a she-said-she-said battle. Nalli claims India.Arie still owes her money from when they worked together and India.Arie counter-sued ... claiming she overpaid Nalli.
But here's the interesting part ... Nalli claims India.Arie constantly canceled shows, rejected offers to perform, and would be unavailable for weeks at a time ... which hurt record sales and therefore cost Nalli additional money.
A rep for India.Arie tells TMZ that "she remains hopeful that the matter will be resolved amicably."
