The Black Eyes Peas may have retired from playing their hit song My Humps live more than a decade ago, but that doesn’t mean a trick won’t sue over copyright infringement for it. The 2005 song from their fourth album, Monkey Business, changed the landscape of body-part-related songcraft–I mean, it hits all the parts! What are “my humps” exactly? Anything, everything, whatever part you want them to be. Although, it is certainly not unicorn poop–at least, not unlicensed unicorn poop. Publisher BMG is suing MGA Entertainment over its Poopsie Slime Surprise toys which used a parody version of My Humps called My Poops. Just when you thought the artistic integrity of My Humps couldn’t get lower–Enter: My Poops.
On November 5, 2021, Travis Scott’s set at Astroworld turned into a horrifying disaster as the crowd surged toward the stage. 10 people lost their lives. The youngest victim was 9 years old. People criticized how Travis didn’t stop the show and even brought out Drake (who was also named in some lawsuits) afterward. And his baby mama and her sister, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were also called out for basically being whisked to safety, reportedly past people’s bodies by guards while medics couldn’t access victims. While billions of dollars worth of lawsuits were lobbed at Travis and Live Nation and more, the blame was also passed around like a game of hot potato. But a coroner report confirmed that all 10 deaths from the event were from “compression asphyxia.” And two of those lawsuits have been settled.
I bet disgraced dance diva Erika Jayne wishes she never told folks it was expensive to be her because she wasn’t lying. However, when you don’t have any money your expensive tastes will land you in the poor house quickly, which is where she’ll be heading very soon. And although she’s still trying to convince us that she has a few dollars left in her piggy bank that’s all about to come to an end with yet another lawsuit. The sins of her sugar daddy estranged husband Tom Girardi continue to pile up and it has now come to light that Erika is being sued by an actress named Christina Fulton, who is accusing Tom’s old law firm Girardi Keese of fraud.
Back in April, NeNe Leakes filed a lawsuit against Andy Cohen and Bravo, accusing them of fostering a toxic, racist work environment. But now the suer has become the suee. TMZ reports that 54-year-old NeNe is being sued by a woman named Malomine Tehmeh-Sioh. So, who the heck is this Malomine character? I’ll tell ya who she is: NeNe’s boyfriend’s wife. Huh. Looks like NeNe didn’t practice what she famously preached on the very first season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta: “Close your legs to married men.”
A Former Healthcare CEO Who Harassed A Teenage Boy For Wearing A Dress To Prom Is Suing Kathy Griffin For “Doxxing” Him
Last year Sam Johnson, a health care company CEO from Franklin, Tennessee, was fired from his job after going viral. Sam was filmed harassing a teen boy for wearing a prom dress. The video, which was originally uploaded to TikTok, shows a confrontation between the fully grown adult man and then-high schooler Dalton Stevens. A smug, smiling Sam says shit like, “You look like an idiot,” and, in response to Dalton calling himself gorgeous, “Are you?”
The video spread like wildfire and Kathy Griffin retweeted it, writing “this is Sam Johnson in Nashville, Tennessee.” She tagged his company, @VisuWell, mentioned he was married to Jill Johnson and “they may reside in Franklin, Tennessee,” and added, “it seems like he’s dying to be online famous.” The video made a ton of headlines, and, soon enough, Sam was canned from VisuWell. Now, exactly one year later, Sam has filed a federal lawsuit against Kathy, claiming it was her tweet that caused the incident to go viral. It was her tweet that got him fired. And, you know, not his own extremely shitty actions.
Todrick Hall seems to be lying about more than whatever he was saying to his competitor’s faces while he was on Celebrity Big Brother because TMZ says that Todrick is being sued for $60,000 over a house that he claimed he bought. Sue him for all the tacky shit he brought into the house while you’re at it!
