Songwriter/producer Estéfano, who has penned some of Latin music's biggest hits of the past decade, has sued his longtime business manager, José Luis Gil, alleging fraud, constructive fraud, unjust enrichment and breach of fiduciary duty, among other charges.

The complaint, filed Nov. 13 in Miami, comes several months after Estéfano almost died after being shot in the chest and head inside his Miami mansion last May. Following the attempt on his life, from which he has recovered, Estefano discovered that Gil had taken full control over his business ventures, the complaint alleges. These included Advanced Business Trading Inc. (ABTI), a company that receives Estéfano's royalty payments.

Estéfano's complaint alleges that a $3.3 million advance he received from Sony ATV publishing shortly before being shot was paid to ABTI and that Gil has only given him $500,000 of that money back. It also states Estefano has been unable to locate Gil.

Estéfano's relationship with Gil dates back 11 years. The two were close friends and, as the allegation states, had an oral agreement in place that granted Gil 10% of Estéfano's earnings. Estéfano has written and produced hits for the likes of Marc Anthony, Jennifer López, Thalía and Gloria Estefan, among many others.
