Lawyer’s Widow Hits Back At Stevie Wonder’s Royalties Lawsuit
In his lawsuit, Wonder claimed he trusted Vigoda to present him with a fair contract to sign when he was just 21 years old, but he had no idea the royalties agreement would continue indefinitely and accused his longtime representative of taking advantage of his disability. However, Vigoda’s widow, Susan Strack, is challenging Wonder’s allegations, insisting her husband had recruited a witness to read out the contract in full to his client before allowing him to sign, reports TMZ. Strack reveals the “Superstition” star, 65, attempted to have the clause amended years ago, but the dispute was never resolved before Vigoda died. She alleges the contract is therefore still legally binding and is asking a judge to order Wonder to pay up. She is seeking at least $7 million in compensation after he halted payments in 2013.
