| After years of proceedings, singer Jordy won his former label's case, following a trial. The former baby singer will be given 820,000 € by Sony BMG. It's going to hurt...
Jordy, the former baby singer, won his trial against his former record company ! The young man didn't earn any money, while he was signed to Sony BMG, with his hits "Dur Dur D'Être Bébé !", "Alison" & "Les Boules".
In 1992, at only 4, Jordy was N°1 in European countries (more than 14) ! A success, often criticised, but his parents & his label earned money behind his back ! Paris' high court sentenced his former label to give him 820,000 € for damages, among the 5 million € claimed.
Watch the video for "Dur Dur D'Être Bébé !" (1992) here.
2 years ago, Jordy Lemoine published his biography & said he never got any money during his short career. He accused his father, who didn't put money on his bank account until his majority, according to the law.
Whereas Sony BMG hasn't commited any fault, Jordy's parents never told him about the author rights he should have earned, the trial, given by Paris' high court on Friday (April 10), has been won by the young Calvados-born boy. "Exploitating sound recording & videos of "Dur Dur D'Être Bébé !", "Alison", "Les Boules" & "It's Christmas", without Jordy Lemoine's authorization, singer, Sony BMG is guilty of counterfeiting" the judges said, they added that the contracts signed in 1992 with Jordy's father aren't valid, for other reasons.
Sony BMG has one month to appeal against this decision. To be continued...
Today, at 21 years old, the singer (winner of "La Ferme Célébrités" second season in 2005), is currently a member of Jordy & The Dixies, whose first album Vingt'Age came out last year, including the single "Diplomate".
