There was someone else that had issues with this but I think repairing the game helped them.

What kinds of mods have you been using before you removed them ?

I have all kinds of mods. 

 

Mostly CAS Custom Content, but I have some gameplay mods as well. 

 

I recreated and received the same Exception with absolutely no mods at all. I've already repaired my game.

I had this too after installing GF. Only with one Household though where i did get Royalities (Books, Songs etc.) before (testing with other Households where i did get them the first time ever worked fine). I tested without any Mods/CC. The only way to fix this was to put the Household into the Library, delete the one in the world and to put them back ingame. That resetted the Royalities as well as other stuff like Relationships. After that the Royalities worked as they should again.
