Matt Willis sues Tricky

Tricky

It was widely reported this weekend that one time Busted boy Matt Willis is suing trip-hopper Tricky over an aborted management agreement. However, the story is only half right – Tricky is being sued by a Matt Willis over a management contract dispute, it’s just not that Matt Willis.

According to the Sunday Mirror, among others, Tricky appointed (artist manager) Willis as his manager in 2010 on a three year contract, but sacked him less than a year later when he hired the services of Crown Management back in February.

According to the tab, Willis received £44,633 from the Trickster when he was dropped as manager, but he reckons he was owed considerably more than that based on their original management agreement, including a cut of Tricky’s earnings through to 2013.

Willis is reportedly suing for £150,000 through the High Court.
