How Stevie Wonder’s Late Lawyer Tricked Him Into Signing To Pay His Family Forever

Published

Some people are mean for reeeal! Legendary blind singer Stevie Wonder has disclosed that his late personal lawyer conned him into signing a contract that mandated that he will continue paying the lawyers family forever even though the lawyer is dead and does not offer him any services from his grave. He claims that the lawyer took advantage of his blindness and made him sign his fortune away to him.

Stevie Wonder said Thursday that his now-dead longtime attorney Johanan Vigoda made the blind music legend sign a contract that paid royalties to the lawyer and his family indefinitely—without telling Wonder what the legal agreement said. In court documents, Wonder says he signed the contract at the age of 21, and hadn’t been told the terms stated the Vigoda family would be paid in perpetutity. Vigoda’s widow has filed a countersuit against Wonder for the payments he ordered halted in 2011.

After Johanan died in 2011 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer, Stevie’s record company continued to pay Johanan’s widow but he says he didn’t realize payments were being made for nearly 2 years, and when he caught wind, he ordered payments to be stopped. Wonder says he trusted Johanan and the lawyer never said the 6% would survive his death.

In his docs, Stevie says he was betrayed by a man he trusted and wants a judge to declare he no longer has a duty to pay royalties, because the attorney took advantage of a blind man.
Ironically, Johanan’s widow has filed her own lawsuit demanding Stevie pay from the time he stopped and forever in the future. She wants $7 mil minimum.

Okon Lagos and Frank Ufomadu disagree over arrest of Bayelsa kidnapper, John Lyon

Okon Lagos, the Nollywood actor, and Frank Ufomadu, the filmmaker, have clashed over the arrest of John ‘Lyon’ Ewa, the alleged kidnapper who operates in Bayelsa.

Lyon was said to have been arrested on Saturday in the federal capital territory (FCT) by officers of the Bayelsa police command.

Until his arrest, the socialite was popular for flaunting luxurious items and posting motivational quotes about success.

The dispute over his arrest started when Paul Okoye lamented the obsession some ladies have towards wealth even without knowing its source.

In an Instagram post, Okoye wondered if any of the ladies seen with Lyon in viral videos ever questioned his occupation or source of money.

Weighing into the conversation, Okon Lagos supported Okoye’s viewpoint.

The comedian said women who hang around people with questionable wealth are “enablers and should be given equal treatment with the actual culprit”.

But reacting to the post, Ufomadu argued that the actor and singer have “no moral justification” for calling out any lady dating “criminals” for not questioning their source of income.

The filmmaker asked the pair if they ever made any attempt to probe the wealthy individuals who pay N5 million or more just to attend their shows.

Ufomadu added that some shows by comedians and singers are usually graced by “corrupt politicians and drug pushers”.

He also tackled the actor for deleting his comment.

But Okon Lagos fired back, saying Ufomadu is not “worth the trouble”.

He also berated him for “giving lame justifications for aiding, abetting and enabling crime”.

Below are screenshots of their verbal exchanges:

If I get married and my husband cheats, I’ll not leave the union. I’ll forgive him and we iron things out. Even married women cheat too.”
