Glee Cast Stiffed Out of Album Royalties
“The ‘[lastfm]Glee[/lastfm]‘ cast is furious because they feel they were misled by Sony,” a source said.
“They have all complained to Ryan (“Glee” executive producer Ryan Murphy) that they want a bigger share of the royalties.”
Cast memebers of the Fox hit “[lastfm]Glee[/lastfm]” claim they have been screwed out of profits from the show’s big-selling soundtrack. [pullquote quote="I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1"]
After their latest record, “Glee: The Music – Journey to Regionals” landed at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in June, star Mark Salling said he’d seen “not a dime” of royalty payments from label Sony Music.
“I got 400 bucks from it going No. 1. But you know what, that’s OK, because if I’m patient, and if this thing does really well, maybe I’ll see another 400 bucks.” said Co-star [lastfm]Corey Montieth[/lastfm].
