The Los Angeles-based multi-platinum singer-songwriter has been fighting since 2014 to take control of his finances from his mother, according to a statement
Robinson started a Vanjoy company in September 1999 into which income was poured when Amorosi signed recording and management contracts while still in school at age 17
Soon after, his second single “Absolutely Everybody” was a hit in Australia and Europe, including the UK and Germany where it went Gold
She went on to sell around 2 million records and continues to tour and release music through the indie Angel Works distributed by Universal Music to this day.
The 39-year-old singer-songwriter claims in court documents Vanjoy’s money was paid to Robinson in the form of management fees or trusts for the benefit of family members and “unknown people “
In one example, Robinson’s businesses reportedly paid the singer an income of $ 862,512 in 2000-01 Of that money, $ 390,000 was used to pay off a mortgage on a house in the Melbourne suburb of Narre Warren, where Robinson and her husband live, according to court documents
Amorosi is asking for “fair compensation” for money paid to others, to be appointed trustee of one of the trusts Robinson created, and that the Narre Warren property be sold and the proceeds returned to him
