Producer Accuses Porsha Williams Of Stealing Syleena Johnson's Song

According to BET Centric, Porsha Williams’ has already made an enemy.  in her short music career. While “Flatline” soared on the R&B iTunes charts, another song that was previewed on Sunday's “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was allegedly not hers to debut on the show.Viewers watched Williams record "Perfectly Worthless" in the studio. Now that millions have heard a snippet, Pierre Medor, the song's writer and producer, has blasted the reality star for stealing it without his permission.  Medor claims he was so dissatisfied with the demo of the song that he decided not to sell it to her. But Williams allegedly used it anyway.
His rep told The YBF:
In the business more than one artist will record the same song hoping for the right outcome, as was the case with "Perfectly Worthless." Porsha Stewart wanted a song, Pierre Medor wrote and produced this song in its entirety. Not having any previous point of reference for Porsha, we initially recorded the song for the purpose of determining her vocal abilities and how they would fit with this particular song; it was quickly determined that this song wasn’t the best match for her, so we chose not to sell her the song and notified her management of our decision.
Medor was shocked to hear the song on television and has since started the process of taking legal action, says the writer/producer’s rep. He continued:
“Perfectly Worthless” is a great song and she loves it…we get that. But just like everybody doesn’t look good in spandex, every voice doesn’t fit every song. It’s just unfortunate that Porsha has chosen to create another delusional marriage with this song by airing it and claiming to have taken part in its creation.
Since Medor didn’t sell the song to Williams, it was sold to Syleena Johnson and will appear on her next album.

Sidebar: Maybe the song will do better for Syleena after all this exposure. Nothing like hearing a song done wrong made right by a real singer!
