Singer 'disappointed' over lawsuit

Aretha Franklin says she's "extremely disappointed" over a lawsuit filed by her long-time songwriting partner over song royalties from her latest CD and copyright infringement.

Norman West of Lansing filed the suit on July 15 against the Queen of Soul's publishing company in Detroit federal court.

The suit claims Springtime Publishing failed to sign a royalty agreement for Put It Back Together Again.

The song is on Franklin's Aretha: A Woman Falling Out of Love album, released in May.

The suit also claims copyright infringement over an earlier tune, Watch My Back.

Franklin did not immediately respond when news of the suit broke, but has now issued a statement saying West has "unmitigated gall" considering how she has "personally assisted and advised him over the past 15 years".
