98 Degrees feels the heat

Oct 13, 2000 by Ian Evans

Boy band 98 Degrees is being sued for breach of contract to the tune of $25 million.

Their former manager said in his filing that the group fired him “…in a selfish and greedy attempt to avoid paying contracted management fees.” Paris D’Jon said he plucked the group, then called Next Issue, from relative obscurity and steered them to the success they enjoy now. The contract was supposed to expire October 2001.
