According to The Source, Spin whose real name Deidra Muriel Roper is suing her band mates stating she was no promised one-third of royalties earned with Salt-N-Pepa's "Best Of" album released in 1999, but didn't receive any payment.
Roper also claims she was cheated when they excluded her from a VH1 TV show that tells about the group rise to fame. The lawsuit claims she was promised one-third of the group's fee for the show, and even though she had a limited role her payment was far less than what was promised.
During their performance at the 2018 Billboard Music Awards Roper claim she was never compensated and the group has made over $600,000 in the past ten years in royalties and didn't receive equal pay.
The lawsuit also includes trademark infringement, fraud, and breach of contract.
