Ginuwine and the fake

Ginuwine has, according to a lawsuit he's filed, managed to get himself signed to a record label which doesn't exist:

Ginuwine claims that Bourne said he owned the label and the contract would offer a $500,000 advance and $1.75 million to record an album.

The singer has not recorded any material since the signing or received any money.

The suit also claims that there is no corporate record for King Music Group Inc. in New York, California, Florida or Tennessee. Ginuwine has been unable to sign to any other label because he is under contract to King and could get sued.

Ginuwine and his lawyer have been unable to contact Bourne and the supposed CEO’s Memphis number is unlisted. Ginuwine’s suit is seeking $4 million in damages.

Now, Ginuwine isn't some starry-eyed young thing just off the Greyhound bus - surely you'd do a bit of background work to find out about the label you're signing to before writing on the line? Especially if you're already in the business and putting your faith and career into the hands of a record label you've never heard of? Wouldn't you?

Now, if you'll excuse us, we're off to complete selling Ginuwine the Brooklyn Bridge...
