Block B has filed a lawsuit against their agency Stardom due to the company neglecting to pay them over the past year and has asked that their contract be nullified.
According to reports, the group file the suit with the Seoul Central District Court, stating that their contract guaranteed that they would be paid on the 25th of every month, but have not received any payments since April of 2011.
The suit goes on to claim that the group's financial issues with Stardom started last March when things such as appearances, their involvement with various dramas and the inauguration of their Japanese fan club were not included as part of their pay. The following month, they simply weren't paid at all.
An official statement regarding the lawsuit has not been released from Stardom at this time.
[Update] Block B claims to have not been paid since April of 2011, not 2012 as previously reported.
