In the documents, DJ Spinderella, who is the real name Deidra Roper, claims the problems that started in 1999 with the release of their & # 39; Best Of & # 39; album.

Apparently Deidra said she had promised a third of the royalties on that record, with Pepa even calling to tell her she would get $ 125,000. However, those funds were never delivered.

Spinderella then says in the documents that she has not received a third of the allowances she had promised for their VH1 TV show, The Salt N Pepa Show, which followed the fame of the group, as she had been promised.

After the incidents, Deidra continued to work with Cheryl and Sandra and even stayed at Las Vegas, but was not compensated for her work on time or regularly.
