'Girl Meets World' star Sabrina Carpenter sued by ex-music managers


Disney star Sabrina Carpenter is being sued by her former music managers for allegedly not paying them commissions after she fired them.

Stan Rogow and Elliot Lurie are suing the 18-year-old Carpenter, along with her parents and manager, for breach of contract and are seeking damages and restitution.

Rogow and Lurie claim they were brought in after Carpenter signed with manager Bill Perlman because she wanted to boost her representation in the music industry. They signed a music management agreement in 2011, under which they would get half of Perlman's commissions, according to the complaint filed Wednesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Carpenter signed a five-album deal with Hollywood Records and landed the role of Maya on the Disney series Girl Meets World — which Rogow says happened after he personally spoke with a network exec while working with the young star.

"Plaintiffs worked tirelessly to promote Sabrina and her music until their service were terminated, without cause," writes attorney Neville Johnson in the complaint.

The duo were fired in August 2014 and claims they are owed commissions. They say, under their termination and release agreement agreement, they are owed a stake of Carpenter's gross earnings and advances in connection with her albums Eyes Wide Open and Evolution.

Perlman did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit.
