that's kind of a long story.

she originally came to me in 2004 and said "i'll produce an album of your original songs - no strings attached".

it's hard to pass up an offer like that. as time went on, it became more and more obvious that she was a certifiable loony.

at one point she wrote me an email that said "i want to taste your cum, i want to feel your cock everywhere in my body".

this woman is at least ten years my senior and i ain't no spring chicken.

soon she was trying to get me to call off my engagement to my fiancée (now wife) and calling me during lessons and at all hours of the day to have excruciating long and pointless "chats".

about half of the time she would be screaming at me over the phone (screaming bitches i've had enough of in my life).

and then every other week or so, she'd threaten to pull out of financing the project. at which point i'd fall to my knees and say "oh, please, pleeeeze. i'll do anything you say, i really really want this album of my songs to see daylight."

after the recording phase finished, she told me (once again) that she was quitting the project. by this time i was completely sick of her tantrums and manipulative control-freak trips, so i offered to buy her out.

it took her another six weeks of her playing mind games to eventually agree on the terms of the buy-out agreement.

one of the clauses in the contract was that she had been completely paid off for her work as a back-up vocalist and that i (as the current producer) had full rights to use (or not use) her backing tracks for this project as i saw fit.

when the announcement was made here on ljp that the album was completely finished, she sent me a 22-page rambling repetitive email threatening to sue me for "improper use of her vocals".

she obviously wouldn't have a legal leg to stand on, but the point is that she is a total fucking lunatic that i should have never gotten involved with in the first place.

and anybody who threatens baseless lawsuits against me immediately ceases to be my friend, acquaintance or any part of my life.

so, the reason she has a vendetta against me is because i refused to nail her!
