Zaytoven, Metro Boomin, and Sonny Digital among those named in lawsuit.

Last month, Chief Keef was suspended by his label FilmOn. Now the label has filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Keef's manager, Idris "Peeda Pan" Abdul Wahid, and several of his producers, including Zaytoven​, Metro Boomin, Sonny Digital, reports Billboard.

The lawsuit specifically points to unauthorized release of two recent Sosa projects Finally Rollin 2 and Nobody 2, which FilmOn claims has cost it $1 million.

"Since May 2015, Chief Keef has breached the Agreement by arbitrarily and capriciously recording, writing, selling merchandise and performing outside of the Agreement," the lawsuit reads.

Keef was not named in the lawsuit because, as FilmOn founder Alki David told Billboard, "FilmOn Music [does not] believe in suing talent."

"We believe Keef has once again mislead by his management," said David. "We have filed a lawsuit against his management company plus all the vendors and producers who have knowingly interfered with his 360 Recording Contract with FilmOn Music."

Stay tuned for future developments.
