Listen to Jermaine Dupri on iHeartRadio

A former business partner is taking aim at So So Def Recordings founder Jermaine Dupri. 

According to court documents obtained by, Dupri's Dieniahmar Music LLC co-founder, Eddie Weathers, has filed a $1 million lawsuit against Dupri for reportedly failing to pay him royalties and other earnings. 

Weathers claims he was pushed out of the partnership when Dupri inked a co-publishing deal with EMI Music in 2006.  Dupri supposedly promised to pay Weathers $238,000 as part of the deal with EMI, but he only received ten grand. 

Weathers was also receiving royalty payments from the deal.  However, he says when Dupri hired a new business manager in 2011, those payments became less frequent and were often delayed.
