Chauncey Black (second from left), one of the founding members of Blackstreet, isn’t feeling producer Teddy Riley these days.

Black is taking Riley to court over what he sees as trademark infringement. Black claims he owns the name “Blackstreet,” and Riley’s been using it illegally.

Now this is where it gets interesting and a tad complicated. Originally, the name was trademarked by Teddy Riley, who let it expire. That’s when Black jumped in and took it for himself.

So why can’t they work/perform together, you ask? Black claims it’s because of Riley’s “uncooperation.”

A rep for Riley tells TMZ, “At this time we have no comment on ANY of the ridiculous and frivolous claims apparently being made by Chauncey Andre Hannibal, aka ‘Black.’”
