Rita Ora being sued by Jay Z's Roc Nation for £1.7m

Rita Ora has been sued by her label Roc Nation to the tune of $2.4 million (£1.7 million).

The singer recently launched legal action against Jay Z's company for seemingly losing interest in her.

She has released one album - 2012's 'Ora' - since joining Roc Nation in 2008, but she wants to cut ties with them.

However, the label has now launched counter legal action against Ora, with the company claiming they've invested millions in developing the singer's yet to be released second album.

The Manhattan civil suit suggests that Ora's contract stated she was to release five albums, yet only one has been forthcoming.

Roc Nation adds that it has "tirelessly promoted [her] career, investing millions of dollars in marketing, recording and other costs, which was instrumental in guiding Ms. Ora to her current level of success and fame.”

Ora's attorney Howard King responded: "Jay Z has personally and graciously promised Rita complete freedom from Roc Nation, the details of which are now being finalised.

“We believe that Roc Nation’s distributor, Sony Music, has required Roc Nation to file this action to preserve whatever rights Sony might have pending resolution."
