Matina and John McBride Are Being Sued

Posted by carolyn ellis on 2018/06/13

Martina McBride and her husband John McBride are being sued over the way they allegedly treated unpaid interns who work for their recording studio, Blackbird Studios. According to the Tennessean newspaper, former Blackbird Studios Operations Manager Richard Hanson, has filed the lawsuit, claiming that the couple violated the law by mistreating unpaid interns. He is suing for $1 million, back pay, benefits, front pay and other damages. His complaint says that they ignored him when he first voiced his concerns, and when he filed an official complaint with the state, he claims that John McBride fired him. Martina McBride has denied Hanson's claims in a statement to the Tennessean, saying, "Blackbird Studios cooperated with the Department of Labor and they found this claim was not supported by the facts. John and I have created a culture at Blackbird that is familial and supportive of everyone who walks through its doors."
