An artist he was courting for his Future History label has sued Jason Derulo. Emaza Gibson filed the action in Los Angeles earlier Thursday, alleging, among other things, quid pro quo sexual harassment, breach of contract, & intimidation and assault in violation of the Ralph Civil Rights Act. She mentions Derulo, his manager Frank Harris, Atlantic Records, RCA Records, and Future History, an RCA joint venture.

According to one source, RCA is unaware of the nature of the lawsuit and has no present contractual relationship with Derulo or Future History, nor throughout the time period covered by Gibson’s claims.

A representative for Derulo issued a statement to People refuting the allegations. “These accusations are completely false and hurtful,” according to the statement. “I strongly object to all kinds of harassment & am going to continue helping individuals who are going after their dreams.” I want to make a constructive difference in the world, therefore these nasty claims enrage me.” The lawsuit details Derulo’s alleged behaviour, which included coercion and outbursts of rage. It claims that Derulo first contacted Gibson in August 2021 about signing with Future History in a partnership with Atlantic, where he is currently signed. He indicated that in order for the initiative to be launched, he would have to furnish Atlantic with a new talent, and in exchange, he offered to create multiple albums with her.
I wouldn’t normally comment but these claims are completely false and hurtful. I stand against all forms of harassment and I remain supportive of anybody following their dreams. I’ve always strived to live my life in a positively impactful way, and that’s why I sit here before… pic.twitter.com/tEG7a9Gi08

Jason Derulo Is Getting Sued By An Aspiring Singer For Allege Sexual Harassment
An aspiring singer has sued Jason Derulo for sexual harassment, alleging that the R&B artist signed her to a record deal with the objective of having sexual contact with her. “I have anxiety; I’m traumatised,” Emaza Gibson explained to NBC News on Thursday. “I’ve worked in inhumane conditions….” I’ve reached the point where I’m back at zero and have nothing.” The musician, who styles herself as a “humanitarian” and “activist” on Instagram, claimed in a lawsuit obtained by Page Six that Derulo, 34, made unwanted sexual attempts towards her after they started working together professionally. She supposedly met the “Talk Dirty” singer in August 2021, and he allegedly instructed her to prepare a mixtape in four months and an album in six months. Gibson signed the arrangement, thinking it was a “no-brainer” because she was eager to launch her solo career. According to the lawsuit, Derulo would frequently invite her out for drinks during her time with him, but she would deny the invitations in order to “keep their relationship professional.” Gibson alleges that after she declined to drink alcohol at out ings, the “Swalla” singer started bringing it into their studio sessions. The singer claims she was given “inappropriately large amounts of alcohol” during a recording session in September 2021 and felt “pressure” to drink it at the time.
She also claims that narcotics, specifically cocaine, were present at times as well as that Derulo once requested her to participate in “goat skin and fish scales,” which she interprets as a sex ritual. In the suit, Gibson says that the “Seea Say?” singer made an “explicit request for sex-in-exchange-for-success.” She also claims that Derulo became upset during a November 2021 event, describing this as an instance of his claimed aggressive behaviour. According to the lawsuit, Gibson was introduced to a lady named Rosa at the time, whom she saw as an example of how her career could grow if she slept with Derulo. According to the court documents, the “Savage Love” singer “lost control & began violently hitting his armrests” after telling his manager, Frank Harris, about Rosa’s appearance. Derulo allegedly threw another tantrum in June 2022 after Gibson was late for a recording session at his Malibu, California, residence. “I had to take a step back… “My hand just clutched my chest because I was, like, I’ve never been addressed this way by anybody,” the singer told NBC News, after saying that the “Wiggle” singer had allegedly “charged” at her when she arrived. Gibson’s record contract was reportedly cancelled on September 6, 2022, as a result of the event.
