The Voice singer Jordan Pruitt is suing her former label, Hollywood Records and its parent company, the Walt Disney Co. She is also suing her former manager, who had molested her according to the singer — with the abuse beginning when she was just 14 years old.
Pruitt came out with the details about the lawsuit on social media, detailing that “3 weeks ago as ‘Jane Doe’ I filed a lawsuit against my molester and those who enabled him.’
The court documents obtained by PEOPLE claimed that Pruitt, who filed the complaint on Aug. 30 after originally filing previously that month using pseudonyms, pointed out her abuser as producer and songwriter Keith Thomas.
Pruitt, Thomas, Disney and Hollywood Records did not respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.
Pruitt is suing Hollywood Records and Disney for their apparent failure to “prevent” the abuse “from occurring.”
The lawsuit claims that the label actively encouraged her to work with Thomas as her mentor and producer and he was left “unsupervised” when with her.
Additionally, Pruitt states in the suit that Thomas was extremely controlling when it came to her career. He used to forbid her from communicating with boys of her age, “deleting male contacts from her cell phone,” the lawsuit claims.
Thomas is also alleged to have controlled the bookings, studio sessions, tour schedules, public relations schedules, and even media requests.
According to the lawsuit, Pruitt mentions that Thomas would blurt hurtful comments about her “weight, looks, voice, songwriting ability, maturity, and intelligence.”
She also came down heavily on Disney and Hollywood Records. While speaking to The Variety, she told that “Unfortunately, these large companies are primarily concerned with sales, money, and charts.
Time after time they fall short of the youthful ability that they are ‘supposed’ to be overseers for. On numerous occasions, we see individuals in places of intensity bomb us. I couldn’t be progressively baffled in how Disney treats their underage ability like money cows.”
