Ru Paul's Drag Race star, Adore Delano (Daniel Anthony Noriega) is being sued by his management for $180,000 (£133k), reports TMZ.

Noriega was originally suing Producer Entertainment Group after claiming that the company had 'stolen' a large amount of his wages.

TMZ report that Noriega claims to have earned $2.5 million (£1.8 million) over the past three years. However, he says he's only received around $300k (£221k).

He believes that his managers at the company conspired with his record label and others, to 'embezzle' his cash.

Therefore, he sued for $1 million (£738k) in lost wages, and another $2.5 mil (£1.8 million) in punitive damages.

PEG told TMZ that his allegations were "categorically inaccurate in every regard, including [Adore's] income, expenses and PEG's commissions" and insisted that they "would never take actions that are adverse to the careers of our artists".

However, the company has now submitted a counterclaim for $180,000 (£133k). They claim that they are entitled to 20% of Noriega's concert, YouTube and merchandise revenues.
