Eminem, Diddy, & Dr. Dre Songwriter Skylar Grey Sold Her Song Catalog To Pay Divorce Fees.

In the early 2010s, you could hardly turn on the radio without hearing one of the countless hits penned by Skylar Grey – among them are Zedd’s “Clarity,” Diddy’s “Coming Home,” and Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie.” During a recent sitdown with Variety, though, the 36-year-old revealed that she had to sell her entire music catalog in order to pay for her divorce fees.

The singer-songwriter opened up about her retreat from the public eye following the arrival of her 2016 album, Natural Causes, revealing that she hit “rock bottom” over the last five years while working through an overwhelming divorce from another songwriter, Elliott Taylor.

“This past year, 2021, we finally resolved [our divorce and] settled, I had to sell my catalog in order to afford the settlement, which was very sad in a way,” Grey told the outlet. “Those songs like ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and ‘Coming Home,’ those are my babies.”

Though she no longer owns the rights to them, the Wisconsin native recognizes that “nobody can tell [her she] didn’t write those songs.”

“I wanted to keep building it and growing it,” Grey said of her catalog. “But, I have such a weight off of me now with the case being over, I’m not on the phone with lawyers every day, and I’m not having to pay all these legal bills anymore.”

From now on, the “Wear Me Out” singer is putting her energy into building new money and new opportunities through new music.

Elsewhere in the interview, she compared a rocky relationship with her past manager to a portion of Kanye West’jeen-yuhs documentary, when he was having a hard time being taken seriously as an artist because people couldn’t get past his producer work. “I feel like that’s kind of how I’m seen in the music industry, but as a songwriter,” Grey told Variety.

“So I think with a lot of managers, they see me that way too. So they focus on wanting me to write songs for other people, that’s where I’ve made most of my money, so it makes sense. But, at the same time, I want a manager who believes in me as an artist, because being an artist is my real dream.”

Another artist to join the ranks of those who have sold their catalogs recently is Justin Timberlake, who took home a $100M for his deal

Chelsea Get Major Boost To Sign Dembele As Barcelona Reduces Offer.

Chelsea has received a major boost to sign Ousmane Dembele from FC Barcelona. This is after the club drastically reduced the offer they initially made to the France international whose contract expires in 2 days. The player is now set to make a final decision between joining Chelsea or staying at Camp Nou.

The player’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, held talks with Barcelona on Monday but the Catalan side have made its clear that nothing will be added to the contract offer they have on the table for him.

L’Equipe reports that Dembele has been offered a contract worth €6 million (£5.1m) a year, which is a drastic reduction on his current deal worth €11m (£9.5m) a year.

The report has it that Dembele is now seriously considering a rival offer from Chelsea.

The Blues want to make the French star one of their first marquee signings this transfer window following the club’s change in ownership.

Thomas Tuchel is also said to have remained a huge fan of Dembele having already managed the French winger during their time together at Borussia Dortmund.
