Hollywood 2019: Contestant of Voice Files LawsuitAgainst Manager, Show, Disney

Pruitt, a contestant on the third season of The Voice has filed a lawsuit accusing her former manager, Keith Thomas, of sexually abusing her ever since she was 14 years old.

Pruitt also sued her former record label, Hollywood Records, and its parent company, the Walt Disney Co., alleging that they had failed to prevent the abuse. The suit alleges that the label compelled her to work with Thomas as her mentor and producer, and allowed him to be unsupervised, even though it knew or should have known that he was a sexual abuser.

“Unfortunately, these large companies are primarily concerned with sales, money and charts,” Pruitt said in a statement. “Too often they fall short of protecting the young talent that they are ‘supposed’ to be caretakers for. Time and time again we see people in positions of power fail us. I couldn’t be more disappointed in how Disney treats their underage talent like cash cows.”
