Chick Sued!

| Filed under: Dixie Chicks

wenn19189432.jpg

Bad news for one of the Dixie Chicks.

Lead singer Natalie Maines is being sued for defamation by the stepdad of one of three 8-year-old boys killed back in 1993.

The incident involved the death of three kids and their three suspected murderers, Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley.

One of the boys' step-dads, Terry Hobbs, is apparently upset with a comment Natalie made about him.

Maines was at a rally in Little Rock last December when she claimed the three "suspected murderers" were innocent and that new evidence showed step-dad Hobbs was the killer.

Before that she wrote a letter on her site in November 2007 in which she claimed new DNA testing of hair from the crime scene linked Hobbs to the killings, adding that his behavior after the murders showed his guilt.

But the lawsuit claims her remarks are false and Hobbs is seeking compensatory and punitive damages as he claims he's suffered from emotional distress, loss of income, and injury to his reputation.

According to the lawsuit, Maines' statements were "so extreme in degree as to be beyond the pale of decency and to be regarded as atrocious and utterly intolerable in civilized society."

Hobbs said earlier this year that "I want people to know I haven't done nothing wrong. I want them to hear it from me."

    Re: theD – You need to shut it also, you ignorant cow. It's called slander and defamation of character. You can't go around accusing people of murder with no proof. Dumbfuck.



  17. 17

    Re: theD

    Totally agree, she is getting sued due to the fact she has money. She shouldn't have said what she said because it is out of line but dude needs to calm down. He might be freaking out cause he might get caught and thinks that this rage against her will help cover his guilt who knows. Sucks to have the big bucks if you are gonna be targeted like that for ya money. hehe

    Who cares though. Dixie Chicks suck!

    This is a highly publicised case and she is completly right in speaking out. Those three men were convicted with no evidence and just the fear of the people around them almost sixteen years ago. Free the West Memphis Three because its so wrong that they're still in jail.



  35. 35

    NASTY SKANK!

    GOOD…she sucks anyway!

    41

    most who have seen the paradise lost documentaries have come to the same conclusion she has. the step-dad did it and three people innocent of the crime remain in prison with one on death row. this is something more people should be publicly discussing and i applaud her fo doing so.

    FREE THE WM3!!!

  43. 43

    I am very familiar with the case of the West Memphis Three. Many celebrities before her have spoken out against the wrongful convitions. About 10 years ago HBO did an astounding documentary on this case called Paradise Lost. Rent it. Infact, it was so successful that they did a second documentary. All evidence suggests the convicted "killers" are innocent but because of the suspects were poor, they didn't have a proper legal defense. I've very passionate and well read and researched about this case. Not to preach to you guys but Eddie Vedder and President Bill Clinton have spoken out about this case to name a few. I admire people who stand up for what they believe. Get off her case.



  44. 44

    She did nothing wrong!!!! FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE!!!!!! WM3.org



  45. 45

    maybe she was out of line. but shes known for speaking her mind and I LOVE HER for it.

    NOT READY TO MAKE NICE BIATCHES



  46. 46

    If he's going to sue Natalie Maines he would have to sue anyone who saw the movie Paradise Lost, the people who made it and anyone who knows anything about this case.



  47. 47

    Well it's obvious his lawyer wrote the 1st part of his statement. Does the step dad even know what "atrocious and utterly intolerable in civilized society means?" I seriously doubt it if he also says things like "I haven't done nothing wrong." This guy is looking at the Dixie Chick with $$$ in his eyeballs.



  48. 48

    Speaking her mind = speaking through her ass. She's a big dummy and need to know when to shut up!



  49. 49

    i totally had the feeling the father comitted the murders too. his wife killed herself afterwards, and there was bite evidence on the kids . guess who got all his teeth pulled out and got dentures after the murders were comitted ?
    the dad …..duh!



  50. 50

    I say we invade Arkansas and remove their crazy, dictatorship government and replace their crazed religious fanatics with insane Muslim fanatics, just to mellow them out.



  51. 51

    She needs to learn to keep her mouth shut - both singing and speaking!



  52. 52

    mentality of suing 4 random stuff really needs to stop.



  53. 53

    GOOD FOR NATALIE!
    That dude is a scary ass crazy motherfucker baby killer.
    She's not the first person to come out and say it either, MANY celebrities have, it's a tragedy that there are three innocent young men rotting in jail for what that dude did. There was NO evidence against the 3 guys who were found guilty.. NONE. IF you're going to comment on this — educate yourself, watch the documentaries and read up on it. It's disgusting.

    FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE!!!



  54. 54

    It is well known that none of the DNA matched any of the "the West Memphis Three" that were convicted for the crimes. It has been widely reported that new tests show the DNA matches Terry Hobbs as well as a friend of his whom he was said to be with on the day of the crime. I really don't think you can sue someone for merely repeating what has already been released by multiple news sources. Neither the DNA nor the Teeth Imprints that were left on the victims matched any of the three teens that were rail-roaded for this crime.



  55. 55

    "I want people to know I haven't done nothing wrong. I want them to hear it from me."

    DOUBLE NEGATIVE!

    And also, have you seen Paradise Lost? This dude is creepy as Hell; and I'm pretty sure he did it.



  56. 56

    I've read a lot about that case, and have a friend who lived in Memphis at the time and knows the alleged "killers". I have to say that she's right, the step father is a crazy douche who seems pretty guilty.



  57. 57

    Little research on the WM3 case would bring up the possibility of Hobbs as a suspect; he should be used to the accusatory remarks, especially since there is just as much evidence against him as the three innocent in prison and death row.

    "I want people to know I haven't done nothing wrong. I want them to hear it from me."
    Just about says it all!

    Re: cubalibra – West Memphis is in Tennessee NOT Arkansas you moron.



  60. 60

    Why is everyone on this site against women who make a stance? Rosie, Kathy, and now Natalie…and she's the tamest of them all! And she was right about Bush! Fuck all you ignorant redneck fools.



  61. 61

    about time this FUG BITCH learns to shut her



  62. 62

    She thinks she knows everything. Maybe this will teach her to keep her big mouth shut.



  63. 63

    Re: UrMommy – You must need a refresher on all that reading you've done on the case. West Memphis is most certainly in ARKANSAS. Look it up.



  64. 64

    ok, i live in the area and i've been hearing about this since 1993 - hobbs DID do it, he pulled all his teeth out after the murders so that no one could compare his bite marks to the ones found on the boys, he also killed his wife a couple years after the boys were murdered. everyone knows it, but the police screwed up the investigation so badly that no one can prove it. he's a sick man and the fact that they put those teenagers in jail b/c they liked metallica and wearing black instead of doing a REAL investigation that wasn't flawed is ridiculous and sad b/c now 6 boys lives have been ruined b/c of this instead of just 3.



  65. 65

    I bet she is happy about this because it will just bring more attention to the case. Do some research on the West Memphis 3 because the whole thing is a huge injustice for all of us. Three innocent men have been in jail for over 15 years. There is no DNA linking them to the victims or the crime scene. Natalie didn't just pull this out of her ass. Go to wm3.org or wm3.vox.com and read about it yourself.



  66. 66

    Re: polkadottedshoe – This is the other step-dad. The step-dad you're referring to, Byers, is actually a supporter of the 3 guys in jail.



  67. 67

    Re: Hot Monkey Love Obama Style! – you're fat and ugly dumbass. There are more to people than their looks dumbshit. You should know. And, she's beautiful.



  68. 68

    All you dumbasses who are dissing Natalie know nothing about the fucking case. If you did you would realize she has a point in her claims.

    So shut the fuck up and quit saying bullshit about her opening her mouth or her looks. First of all, it's great that she isn't afraid to speak her mind and she stands up for something she believes in. Second, she's gorgeous and her looks have nothing to do with this. I'm sure most of you dumbasses are ugly as fuck so you don't have room to speak.



  69. 69

    I love women who have a lot to say. I *despise* women who don't know WHEN or about WHAT to open their mouths about. She deserves to be sued. If she thought the step-dad did it, there's a WAY to say it. That is something Natalie Maines has never understood. It's ok to speak your mind…but have some sense when you do so. She is exactly that though…utterly senseless.



  70. 70

    Hobbs said earlier this year that "I want people to know I haven't done nothing wrong. I want them to hear it from me."

    that quote is hobbs admitting he is the killer…"haven't done nothing wrong."

    he's a whack-job and if you've seen him in the documentary you'd believe it. speak out all you like natalie…it's a free country!



  71. 71

    John Mark Beyers was the stepdad implicated in the Paradise Lost Documentaries. Terry Hobbs is a different stepdad that is under suspicion. If not by the authorities, at least by people following the case. All of the victims' parents say they believe the wrong men are behind bars, except Hobbs. He believes the right men have been caught. They were convicted by a jury suffering from "Satanic Panic," when todays profiling would suggest it was more along the lines of someone fitting the profile of a pedophile who was responsible for the murders. Interesting case. The WM3 at the very least deserve a new trial as two of the defendents were tried at the same time. Still wrong of Natalie to say as much. Her money may have been better served not going to Hobbs, but to the alleged perps defense if she's so passionate about it. Maybe even to pay for the DNA testing that has taken so long because of lack of funds.



  72. 72

    "…haven't done nothing wrong"? so doesn't that mean that he did?



  73. 73

    FREE THE WEST MEMPHIS THREE!! I sent a post card loooooong time ago to somehow help out. grrrrr..

    74

    I never suspected this particular step dad when the films first came out. I always suspected the other inbred retard step dad. The Byers guy. Apparently I am not keeping up with the case because I wasn't aware that Terry Hobbs was considered a suspect.



  75. 75

    He " haven't done nothing wrong" ??? WTF that means he did do something wrong and I agree w/ natalie that guy could not be more guilty- Look up Free the West Memphis Three…………it's a tragic tragic story that was on HBO and that dude totured those poor little innocent boys.



  76. 76

    well if he said he "hasnt done nothing wrong" then hes done something wrong….right???



  77. 77

    Couldn't happen to a nicer, more deserving person. What about a dumb bitch. I hope they take her for everything she's worth, which isn't much IMHO, either way here's hoping she'll learn how to STFU!!!! Especially when you don't know what the hell you're talking about in the first place. Another case of watching CSI and proclaiming yourself a forensic analyst………
    Dumb Dixie Bitch.



  78. 78

    Good, if it means Natalie's name being linked to this means Someone Else will listen and be informed…….Read, be informed, re-read, become educated in this…then respond. Respond with an intelligent answer



  79. 79

    and she's fat again too….

    She needs to keep her ass where she belongs. And it ain't in Little Rock. She knows absolutely nothing about this case.

    Bottom line… Freedom- of -speech. If yall' don't like freedom and want to be told what to say and what not say, go to China or something.



  83. 83

    Bullshit…you want a paycheck! Although she is a loose cannon, she is an intelligent woman and I bet there is a grain of truth to what she has observed/concluded.



  84. 84

    Free the WM3. I have done a lot of research on the case and I have spent a tiny amount of time in West Memphis… If what I encountered in 2008 is in anyway similar to what Echols, Misskelley, and Baldwin experienced in this horrible witch hunt, they have even more of my respect and sympathy. The looks I noticed and the comments I overheard showed me just how behind this area is; it's truly sad. I can't stand Natalie Maines as an artist, but as a strong woman who stands up for her opinions, she has my respect for that. Before anyone else trashes her for standing up for this, please do a bit of research and see her comments to have merit. If nothing else, hopefully she is bringing more attention and donations to the WM3 Defense Fund. FREE THE WM3!



  85. 85

    There are plenty of people that have pointed fingers at Hobbs… he is just going after her because she has money.

    Re: Rachlb – Not as freaky as the Buyers dude.

    My god. It's her first amendment right, folks. I am glad she supports the case.



  88. 88

    Perez, please please please don't talk about this until you watch Paradise Lost. These kids are in jail for NOTHING. I love you but it makes me really sad to see this on here because these kids (well adults now) did nothing wrong. They are in jail because they were different from the people around them. I don't care about Natalie Maines. FUCK Natalie Maines. I mean I know she is only trying to help but fuck her. All I care about is that these kids get out of jail. I don't know who killed those boys and I would never accuse any of their parents of doing it. All I know is that Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley are innocent. Please, please Perez watch Paradise lost before you mention this again and study the case. These boys have been accused and convicted of something they simply didn't do and one of them may die because of it.

    Yes, it is her 1st Amendment right to speak but others also have a right to speak out against her. Hopefully, people will grasp that concept eventually.

    When will she learn to keep her mouth shut?



  91. 91

    Re: Sylvergem – Sylvergem has it. The West Memphis Three, in all likelihood, are innocent. I certainly have my doubts about the dad too. Maines has a good point.



  92. 92

    Natalie has RUINED the Dixie Chicks with her big mouth, first about President Bush and now about this private citizen. You can't even listen to their music without thinking about Natalie's big mouth running on and on. Very sad.

    HAHAHA YOU FAT SLUT!!!

    UR BIG MOUTH GOT U AGAIN!!!



  94. 94

    THIS BITCH HAS NO NECK.



  95. 95

    I love the Chicks…and usually cant stand country music…but like them. Natalie always gets shit for whatever reason. She's got a big mouth. But whatever. I still like them. Oh, and by the way…no one really heard about this until this guy brought it up again. Money hungry much? Press charges if you are that annoyed…but SUE?



  96. 96

    If people on here weren't ignorant dumbasses you would know this is related to the West Memphis Three who were convicted for these murders on the basis of having heavy metal tshirts and Stephan King novels. They also questioned one of the young men for 12 hours without the consent from lawyers or his parents. This young man is also mentally handicapped. These men are all in jail for life for crimes they did not do. One of them is waiting for his death sentence that YOUR tax money is paying for.



  97. 97

    WE LOVE HER!!!! Don't ever stop Natalie! You always get shit for your comments, and are right in the end. Totally love you after listening to you on the Stern show.Cheers!!!
