In today’s edition of 90s R&B divas continuing to fight a melodramatic battle, the ladies of En Vogue have finally settled their beef over the rights to the group’s name.
According to legal papers, two of En Vogue’s founding members Terry Ellis and Cindy Herron won exclusive rights to the En Vogue name whenever they decide to perform. The decision brings an end to a long and tense war between Ellis and Herron and Dawn Robinson and Maxine Jones.
As the story goes, Dawn and Maxine were sued by Terry and Cindy for $1 million over use of the groups’ name. Cindy and Terry alleged the other ladies were using the name “En Vogue” after the quartet broke up and had no right to do so since the name is owned by another company. A judge agreed with Cindy Herron and Terry Ellis which gave them the name, but they failed to prove they incurred any damages so they weren’t awarded any money.
Now that the battle for 1992 is over, can we please bring out some new girl groups?
