The Moesha star filed a lawsuit against Chameleon Entertainment Group in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday (29Mar16), claiming executives have prohibited her from recording and/or releasing new music in an attempt to get her to sign a new deal.

In the legal documents obtained by the Associated Press, Brandy reveals she signed with Chameleon in 2011 and released her first album through the firm, Two Eleven, the following year (12).

Under the terms of the original deal, Chameleon had the option to release four more records with the R&B star, but she claims in her lawsuit that chiefs refused to allow her to make a new album.

Although Brandy claims she terminated her contract, she is seeking to a judge's ruling that it is officially void.

Brandy, who was previously signed to Epic Records, earned generally favourable reviews for her Two Eleven album, which debuted at number three on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart, and also hit the top spot on Billboard's R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
