Rapper/actor/director/producer RZA of the Wu Tang Clan is facing a lawsuit today from a Dutch singer who claims he didn't properly compensate her for her work.
Thea Van Siejaen says she co-wrote and performed on 14 songs with RZA from 2004 to 2011, including the song "Baby Boy," which was featured in Jet Li's film "Unleashed."
According to Van Siejaen she has only been paid a fraction of what she's owed according to TMZ.
The singer says she has been afraid to come forward and demand full payment for her work because she feared RZA would blackball her within the industry. Van Siejaen is now asking the court to force RZA to cough up her share of royalties for the songs.
"Unfortunately this is a groundless lawsuit by someone RZA had helped get off the streets, lent a helping hand to, and now thinks he’s an easy target to mark looking for money," say sources close to RZA.
