The music company claims that they set Platt up with the money to record the official version of the 'Pants on the Ground' single after it became an overnight sensation when Platt performed the song on an American Idol tryout.
A music company called American King Music claims they funded Platt's recent recording session with rapper/producer Mims for the official full-length version of POTG.
The lawsuit was filed in Atlanta, and American King Music says Platt failed to live up to his 'obligations', but no specific information on what those obligations are were given.
American King Music is suing for over the distribution agreement and any money spent on the producing, writing and recording of the single.
TMZ reports that they spoke with Platt's manager 'Pinky', and he says that his client never signed a contract with American King Music. He says the music company is asking for 50% of all profits that come from iTunes downloads of the single. Pinky says that Platt's camp is ready to to take on the lawsuit, which is likely a non-agreement case.
