Singer Stiffed Me for $3 Million

While Anastacia was cranking out hits in the late ’90s and early 2000s, she forgot about the people who helped get her to the mountain top … so claims the singer’s ex-manager.
Anastacia — immensely popular for her songs, her shades, and/or her abs — was down and out after a failed record deal in 1998 .. according to Lisa Braude, the ex-manager. Braude claims she nurtured her, paying her bills, until she got on the MTV talent search show, “The Cut” in 1999.
According to a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Anastacia got a record deal with Epic Records after the show, and hired Braude as her manager. They worked together until 2004, which was the singer’s heyday — 3 studio albums, including her smash hit, “I’m Outta Love.”
As you might recall, Anastacia was forced to take a break in 2003 due to breast cancer, but still released compilation albums. In the docs, Braude says she hasn’t gotten her cut from those records … hence the lawsuit.
Braude wants Anastacia to cough up $3 mil, mostly in unpaid commissions.
