16 Apr – Hong Kong singer GEM Tang has officially taken her contractual dispute to the High Court, requesting for the court to declare her contract with Hummingbird Music invalid.

As reported on Mingpao, according to the records released earlier this week, the plaintiff (GEM) named co-founder Zhang Dan, Creative Director Bernard Groinig and Li Rui as defendants, claiming that they intimidated her into signing a new contract and forced her into participating in projects without her consent.

GEM is also requesting the court to rule that her contract with Hummingbird Music was over at the end of the March instead of the company's insistence that it remains valid until 2022, and to allow her to use her stage name, trademark and YouTube channel, among other things.

The legal action was made following Hummingbird Music's previous lawsuit, in which they demanded the singer pay them HKD 120 million in damages for causing them a loss of profit.

Asked about her court case recently, GEM said that she won't be talking about it in detail as it has already entered judicial stage.

"I don't want things to evolve into a war of words, so it is inconvenient to respond further," she said.
