Video sharing platform, Triller is in a spot of trouble at the moment. It seems that the company has been negligent with payments for the entirety of this year. Now, Triller is being sued for the same.
The Washington Post reports that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland sold their Verzuz series to Triller back in 2021. Triller, however, has repeatedly defaulted on payments due to Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, and has failed to respond to requests for payment.
Reportedly, the duo did receive payments in January and April 2021. However, the payment due in January 2022 never arrived. Consequently, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland are now suing Triller for $28 million.
“To date, Defendants have failed and refused to make any payment to [Swizz Beatz and Timbaland] of the past due sums due and owing,” the suit reads. Obviously, Swizz Beatz and Timbaland want to get paid.
The duo’s lawyers also added that a new payment plan was agreed upon. Triller was expected to pay the rappers in March 2022, and subsequent months. However, those payments never came through.
This is not the first time that Triller has been in trouble over missed payments and royalty disputes. Here’s hoping that Swizz Beatz and Timbaland get what’s owed to them.
