Eighteetwentysix Service Agency is suing MLH Touring Inc. for breach of contract and other compensatory demands. According to legal documents obtained by The Blast, the service provider decided to sue MLH Touring Inc. after the company failed to make timely payments. 

Inside The Lawsuit

California-based Eighteentwentysix LLC argues that after establishing a written contract with MLH Touring in August 2023, they became responsible for managing the production, rehearsals, and other performance-related needs. However, the company alleges that MLH Touring did not make payments as requested. As a result, Eighteentwentysix is demanding the amount owed, and 10% interest added from their last invoice in December 2023. In addition, the touring company is requested to repay the agency’s attorney fees, incurred costs associated with the lawsuit, and other financial relief to be considered by the courts. 

The 25th Anniversary Tour of the five-time Grammy-Award-winning album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” was slated to be a 17-date tour. Although Hill performed at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, Chicago’s United Center, and the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, the tour was canceled after Hill’s vocal strain required her to postpone the tour, which was set to run through December 2023, according to Variety. Plans to reignite the tour were slated for 2024, but no dates have been promoted.

Hill, who has a net worth of $9 million, is a singer/songwriter and actress, launched her musical with high school friends Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel when they formed the Fugees. The band went on to release two albums, “Blunted on Reality” and the multiplatinum “The Score.” 

At the same time, Hill was appearing in soap operas such as “As the World Turns” and the film, “Sister Act II: Back in the Habit.” 

As a solo artist, Hill released two studio albums: “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” and “MTV Unplugged No. 2.0.” Her first album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart and eventually was certified diamond, selling 12 million copies. Apple Music recently named it the greatest album of all time.
