USHER is at the center of legal action from a student songwriter who alleges he was cheated out of ownership rights for the R&B superstar's album track MONSTER.
Usher included the song on his 2010 release Raymond vs. Raymond, but Kameron Glasper claims he was conned into signing away half of his interest in the tune, which was part of a 10-track package deal he entered into in 2009 for Legendary Poets Music Publishing.

Glasper, also known as Kam Parker, insists he was a "young, inexperienced college student" trying to break into the music industry when he agreed to the contract with publishing company owner Bethel Harris.
He alleges Harris "exploited" his talents and claimed to be "the only person that Usher Raymond's representatives would negotiate with for the song Monster".
Legendary Poets closed its doors in February 2010, before relaunching over 2010 summer – and Glasper argues his contract should be dissolved too.
He recently filed the civil complaint in DeKalb Superior Court in Georgia and is seeking to take back full ownership of his songs, in addition to compensation and legal costs, reports YoRaps.com.
