    Why didn't she just ride him and get a gold digger's money the old fashion way after having his kid?

    hold on.

    She worked 18 months on a pay-me-later plan? wtf kinda contract did she sign? Sounds stupid. She never invoiced him during all that and quit when he didn't pay?

    weird.

    Any real contractor would have gotten some up front and had a milestone invoicing plan. Once he misses one payment, it's on you to choose to continue. Once you choose to continue without demanding payment, you pretty much changed your contract.

    Not here to defend White, but why in the world would this woman continue to rep him after not being paid after the first month? How about you want me to continue to work for you than pay me or services stop immediately.

    Eighteen months :eek:

    Bigger clienteles don't have the same payment policies as everyone. I suppose this woman thought big things were coming and it was worth being paid after a rocky settling in period

    Bigger Agents don't do a year's worth of work with no pay. Don't be silly.

    I do not know the size of her agency but it seems very, very small. Probably because the legit agencies wanted nothing to do with Royce. It's a risk she likely had to take for potential growth , but obviously poorly executed on her behalf

    Royce White is excused from all accountability because of his mental illness, right? How can we criticize him without being able to get into his lying, conniving head?

    This woman thought she had some easy money coming for at least a short time but didn't know she was dealing with the Master of Manipulation.

    I'm not defending Royce ... But she horribly failed as his publicist. With how he acted and the things that he posted, I'm honestly suprised he even had a publicist.

    You'd stop after some point though. A new client isn't getting continuing work without making payments.

    Edit: Not to say she is lying, but that she is an idiot.

    In staged environments, he did okay. He did horrible with Twitter.

    But to be honest, I don't know why he even go into the troubles of getting a publicist. Just him on Twitter saying "#BeWell" over and over didn't help his public image here in Houston.

    What could she do: follow him 24-7 and make him keep his mouth shut? She's a publicist, not a miracle worker.

    Exactly , a decent PR director / publicist would have improved Royce's twitter tantrums . I think Royce is smart enough to know that his image is important ... If he had been more careful with it he was talented enough to already get court time making his skills the ultimate factor in his job prospects. As it went down he is perceived as a cancer . Flying issues aside .
