Panama’s Former Minister of Tourism, Ruben Blades will be in court in Puerto Rico on May 17 in a breach of contract trial initiated by fellow salsa singer Willie Colon.
The legal mess between the two legendary performers follows a 2007 concert “Sowing —25 years later. "
Columbus claims he did not receive his share of the $350,000 receipts and is suing for $115,000.
“I was willing to make a settlement, but Ruben wanted me to leave without me getting my share. I agreed to a trial without a jury, but Ruben insists on a jury to make theater. He is an actor as well as a singer.He wants the pleasure of not paying and also winning the case, "said Colon..
Blades said he was "satisfied that the truth will come to light."
