Adam Lambert has found himself on the receiving end of a new lawsuit. A company named Colwel Platinum Entertainment is suing the singer saying he violated the rules of American Idol when he appeared on the eighth season of the show. They claim he's still under a music services agreement and a co-publishing agreement with them, and that he violated the company's rights. They've been marketing a new Lambert album called Beg For Mercy. Adam tweeted about the situation, saying quote, "'Beg For Mercy' project is same as 'Take One'. some songs I worked on 5 yrs ago and never finished. This release comes as a surprise to me..." The company says it spent more than $200,000 to produce the recordings and even advanced money to Lambert. Lambert's reps sent takedown notices to Amazon.com, which had the album up for sale, and on October 14, the album was removed for sale. Sounds like a total mess! We can't tell if this is just some company trying to make money off Adam now that he's made it big, or if they really have a viable lawsuit! What do you think?
