Scott Storch is being sued by an up and coming artist Treena Ruberg. She claims that the paid the producer thousands of dollars to produce her up coming album and he spent the money on coke and did not work on the project.
According to Ruberg’s lawsuit, which was filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Scott Storch agreed to produce six songs for Treena Ruberg for $45,000. Ruberg gave $30,000 up front back in October of 2011. Ruberg says the producer disclosed his drug problem to her, but swore up and down he was clean and would be able to produce the music she needed by the end of November. But Treena maintains Storch was lying when he said he was “cured of his past problem” because his drug use continued and he had other personal issues which made him unable to deliver on is part of their agreement.
Treena Ruberg is suing Scott for the $30k she paid him plus another $70k for other expenses like studio time, airfare, and hiring another music producer. Scott Storch and his lawyers have yet to respond to the lawsuit.
