Here’s why Cher is suing Sonny Bono’s widow for $ 1 million


Next, the documents allege that in 2016, Mary and Wixen Publications “issued a termination notice to various music publishers or other companies to which Sonny had granted a transfer or license of renewal copyright, or rights. by virtue of these, on musical compositions. “

Cher’s attorneys said the termination notice was given without his “knowledge or involvement.”

According to the documents, Cher was told in September that her royalty entitlement was terminated and that she no longer had “approval rights.”

But the documents say Cher “disputes every claim made by The Bono Collection Trust” and alleges Mary and others “violated” their contract. “As a direct and immediate consequence of the breaches of the defendants, [Cher] suffered damage, and will continue to suffer, in an amount currently unknown but estimated to be over $ 1,000,000, “the lawsuit said.”[Cher] is entitled and requests the imposition of a constructive trust on the fifty percent undivided royalty that it holds but which [Mary and others] you have received and have not paid for it or request that it be paid directly. “
