Los Angeles based Conspiracy Entertainment has filed a lawsuit against rapper Eminem claiming that the entertainers management company is guilty of fraud and breach of contract over a potentially lucrative game licensing deal.
According to the suit, Eminem's agents - Cousins Entertainment and Bravado International - had a contract with Conspiracy to create a videogame featuring the star, but reneged on this deal in order to negotiate a contract with a different company as Eminem (real name Marshall Mathers) became more popular.
"We were not aware of any problems until we started getting some press on our new product," explained Conspiracy CFO Keith Tanaka. "Then we started hearing rumours about Eminem negotiating a better deal with Rockstar Games or some other big video game publisher. Apparently, our deal must have been in the way because there was no other reason for Bravado and Cousins to stop us from introducing a video game that was approved before the contract ever got signed."
Conspiracy is now seeking over $5 million in damages from the two management companies as a result of their failure to honour the licensing agreement for the game.
