Usher made $430-million on his single “Burn “. But a songwriter named Ernest Lee Straughter joined more than a dozen protesters outside NBC Universal Studios in Los Angeles to demand Usher settle with them because they claim he stole their song!
62-year-old Straughter is a songwriter/pianist from Los Angeles who has played with Earth, Wind and Fire, Barry Manilow and Herbie Hancock.
He sued Usher for 20 percent, or about $80 million, but now he’s willing to settle for less.
No comment from Usher or his camp.
