Ruben Studdard is a Winner all Over Again!
Season 2 American Idol winner, Ruben Studdard, has just been awarded $2 Million in a lawsuit. Ruben sued his ex-manager for improperly or basically stealing $246,000 from him.
Jefferson County (Ala.) Circuit Judge Scott Vowell on Thursday awarded the 26-year-old Studdard $500,000 for his actual losses and another $1.5 million in punitive damages in his suit Â filed last year Â against former manager Ronald W. Edwards and Edwards's promotions company, Sez Inc., the Birmingham News reports.
Ruben had a hard time purchasing a home, because Edwards killed his credit.
He really needs the dough to get gastric bypass, so he can fit in a damn house.
