Seal has been ordered by a British court to pay a former manager commissions on earnings from his first two albums.
John Wadlow claimed he was entitled to unpaid commissions due under a 1995 agreement. Both of the albums in question were recorded before that date.
In London Thursday, Justice Charles Gray ordered Seal, whose real name is Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, to make an interim payment of $922,000. The full amount to be paid to Wadlow will be decided at a future court hearing.
