Lily Allen will ‘vigorously defend’ £100k legal action from former tour manager

Tour management company EC1 music claims the singer breached contract, which she denies

Lily Allen is reportedly being sued for more than £100,000 over claims she broke a contract with her former tour management company.

The Mail On Sunday reports that Allen is facing legal action from EC1 music, which is believed to be claiming in High Court papers that Allen broke a contract with them to join US firm CAA ahead of her 2014 comeback tour.

A spokesperson for the singer said she “will be defending the matter vigorously.”

It is reported that plans for Lily Allen to play live dates between 2013-2014 were originally made in 2012 by the singer and James Nightingale, the director of EC1 music. The company had worked with Allen since 2007 and reportedly continued planning the live dates even after the pop star announced she was pregnant in 2012.

Nightingale, the son of Radio 1 DJ Annie Nightingale, claims that there was no break clause in his contract with Allen and is seeking compensation for the “very large amount” of work he did booking venues for the live dates.
