Eminem’s Licensing Agent Sued for Fraud

Conspiracy Entertainment Corp, a Los Angeles based producer of video games, today sued Eminem’s Management Company, Cousins Entertainment, Inc. and Eminem’s Licensing Agent, Bravado International Group, Inc. for fraud and breach of contract arising out of a video game Conspiracy was set to release featuring Eminem music videos. According to Conspiracy, Eminem, through his agents, Cousins and Bravado, reneged on a lucrative video game license agreement in order to cut a better deal with another company as a result of Eminem’s increasing popularity. Conspiracy Chief Financial Officer Keith Tanaka claims that all of the parties were in agreement about the first video game project before the licensing agreement was ever signed. According to Tanaka, “we were not aware of any problems until we started getting some press on our new product. Then we started hearing rumors about Eminem negotiating a better deal with Rockstar Games or some other big video game publisher. Apparently, our deal must have been in the way because there was no other reason for Bravado and Cousins to stop us from introducing a video game that was approved before the contract ever got signed.” The suit filed by Conspiracy seeks over $5,000,000 in damages based upon Eminem’s agents’ failure to honor the licensing agreement. When asked whether Conspiracy thought that Eminem (Marshall Mathers) was personally involved in the decision to dishonor the contract, Conspiracy’s President, Sirus Ahmadi, declined to speculate, stating only that “we hope everyone can arrive at a quick resolution now that Eminem is fully aware of the problem.”
