No, really she is... How you can you expect Ne-Yo to hold on to 6-8 songs without cutting a check? Especially when he called her A&R people several times and received no response back.
Ne-Yo tells KIIS-FM 102.7
"I was working with Britney Spears' people. I wrote 6 to 8 songs for Britney Spears. Then Britney goes ahead and shaver her head, goes into rehab and when that happened I lost all contact with her A&R people, with her label. I was calling them, they weren't answering my calls. So in the process of all that going on, that's when I meet Nicole Scherzinger. I played her two gongs, she loved them, they cut the check and she recorded the songs. So when that happened that's when Britney's people called and said ' why are you giving away Britney's songs' and I say 'uh, hold on.. y'all didn't cut me a check"
