Madonna is being accused of not giving credit and not paying a songwriter for his work on her album Madame X.
Casey Spooner, a member of electronic group Fischerspooner, took to social media to claim he is co-writer of the track God Control. “I have had enough … I’ve gotten no credit and no compensation … while you’re galavanting around on stage I’m completely broke in Berlin. Robbed, ignored and delayed.”
He claimed he was offered up to $25,000 as an advance against future publishing royalties, but instead wanted to be paid “1% of touring profits … There is no money in record sales. Period. Not even for Madonna.” In a later Instagram post, he said: “They are trying to intimidate me … it’s not easy fighting giants.”
