The NFL is being sued by musician Bobby Nunn over the use of his song “Rocket 2 U” in numerous broadcasts.
TMZ Sports dropped the news that Nunn filed a lawsuit in New York on Wednesday alleging that the 1988 hit song he wrote and produced for the Jets was used multiple times by the NFL and NBC Universal without his permission.
He said that he contacted both companies about the issue, but they have both denied infringement on his property. Nunn says he was never compensated for the use of the song and the NFL never licensed it in the first place.
Nunn, who is a longtime R&B producer songwriter, and vocalist, is best known for his top-15 U.S. Billboard R&B chart single, “She’s Just a Groupie.”
