There are reports on Singer Skylar Grey’s right due to her divorce issues with her ex husband whom she was left with no option than to raise money and settle.
The singer made a bold revelation that she had to sell her rights to some of the biggest songs she’s contributed to in order to fund her messy divorce battle.
Many of this songs includes hit tracks with Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie”), Dr. Dre (“I Need a Doctor”) and Diddy (“Coming Home).”
Grey appeared for an interview with Variety on Monday after being mostly out of the public eye for more than five years.
She spoke about what she is going through when it comes to her divorce battle from Todd Mandel in her absence, during which she had to sell her ownership in hit songs in order to pay for her mounting legal fees.
