Kelsea Ballerini Gets Restraining Order Against Fan Release Of Unfinished Music

Kelsea Ballerini has filed for a temporary restraining order against a fan who allegedly disseminated music that wasn’t finished without permission.

The “Penthouse” singer has asked for the TRO against Bo Ewing, whom Ballerini claims “without authority or approval, surreptitiously gained access to, copied and disseminated still-in-production, unreleased masters and demos” of her music.

“Defendant has already circulated the recordings to numerous third parties,” the court documents state. “These songs are not finished and no Plaintiff has given permission for their distribution or dissemination at this time.”

Ewing is described in court papers as “a former member of Ms. Ballerini’s fan club” and “a supporter of her career in the past” who “has since become disenfranchised with Ms. Ballerini.”

“[Ewing] has a history of hacking other famous musician’s accounts and obtaining works and information improperly,” the documents state.

Ballerini, Black River Entertainment and producer Alysa Vanderheym secured an injunction to prevent “continued, irreparable harm” from any further unauthorized release of the unfinished recordings.
