Russ and Run Sued Over Pastry


Russell Simmons and his brother Reverend Run are on the verge of being sued for unscrupulous business practices...

According to reports Rasheed Young - President of Run Athletics - is planning to sue Revend Run and Russell Simmons because he hasn't seen a penny from their very successful Pastry sneaker venture.

Rasheed believes Russell Simmons and Reverend Run are siphoning off cash to a company that he is not affiliated with.

Rasheed claims Pastry, fronted by Run's daughters Angela and Vanessa Simmons, has earned tens of millions of dollars even though he hasn't received a dime

Rasheed wants the numbers cleared up and is prepared to file suit.

What a minute..... This man is saying that the Pastry sneaker line has sold in the millions, but you never seen a dime? Hasn't this line been out for a minute?

I would like to know an explanation on that one.....

I don't know one person who owns anything from this line. So earns 'millions'...okay.

But if the money is funny court is the way to sort it out.

Another example of how the rich get down in business. Y'all keep thinking these people with hundreds of millions of dollars got it by praying and hard work. They all fucked somebody out of something. And that's real.

You follow the history of these people and all kinda unscrupulous shit is revealed. Who will you shit on to get to ur millions? If you're not a millionaire it's cuz u refuse to shit on someone to get it.

9:53 After paying employees, supplies, taxes, expenses, etc. I can see it. Profit means nothing unless it's net profit.

pastry has some cool sneakers, cool styles and the ones for little girls are adorable.
I can believe they've sold millions between California girlie girls, skater kids and down south, which is where I'm seeing them.
They sale them at Finish line and journeys, and even if you think the name is corny, the styles are edgy, plus like many black celebs, they choose to cater to a white audience, and make more money, pastry has little white kid pop singers promoting the brand,
those little white girls that love nicki manaj probably wear pastry because it matches the style.
any who, don't hate on pastry, the shoes are pretty cool

It's always the big man fuckin' over the little man. When all the little man wants is to feed his family. I hope he wins. You can't have a person do work for you and simply not pay them, even if you have to come out of pocket, which I'm sure as far as financially, it wouldn't hurt either brother. It's just not right.

I once heard a bluesman bellow, "To be a millionaire you have to do somebody wrong".

Some people want to be paid for nothing! Is he an employee with a salary? Does he have a contract stating that he will get a percentage of the profits from the pastry line?
