CelebNMusic247.com has the latest jack tracking that involves Katy Perry and rapper Marcus Gray aka Flame (as seen above).
Marcus Gray aka Flame “survived constant court challenges and a trial against top-flight attorneys for Perry and the five other music-industry heavyweights who wrote Katy Perry‘s song,” according to Fox News.
Gray’s attorney, Michael A. Kahn pointed out:
We weren’t here seeking to punish anyone. Our clients came here seeking justice, and they feel they received justice from a jury of their peers.
Perry will personally have to shell out $550k to the rapper while Capitol Records, who was also a defendant, will have to fork over a whopping $1.2 million.
The jury returned a unanimous verdict and is a massive win for Christian rapper Gray, who goes under the moniker, Flame.
