Aretha Franklin Doesn't Take Too Kindly To These Satirical Accusations! Suing News Site For $10 Million Over Slanderous Claims!

aretha franklin suing for defamation

A few weeks ago, a satirical site called The News Nerds published an outrageous article about Patti Labelle and Aretha Franklin getting into a little tiff.

The satirical site "reported":

"While Aretha Franklin was making her way to the stage, Labelle extended her hand to greet the “Respect” singer, when she threw epic shade in an effort to avoid her."

Needless to say, the Respect singer did not take too kindly to their fake claims.

A few days after the fake story went viral, Aretha posted a response, dismissing the scuffle between the two songstresses, but apparently that wasn't enough!

In fact, Aretha just filed a $10 million lawsuit against The Onion wannabe site!

Through her publicist, Gwendolyn Quinn, the queen of soul said:

Zac Posen Slapper Slapped With Million Dollar Lawsuit!

That's gotta hurt!

After being slapped at Zac Posen’s show, fashion publicist Lynn Tesoro has slapped back, in the most legal way possible.

Not only is Jennifer Eymere being sued for $1 million, but her, her sister Vanessa Bellugeon and mom, Marie-Jose Susskind-Jalou have all been charged with "assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, slander and/or libel."

Sounds serious!

Eymere wouldn’t comment, probably because she was reached by phone, and a snappy response just isn’t the same as a slappy one.

We can’t wait to see how this one plays out!

Britney Spears' Mom Lynne To Testify In Libel And Defamation Lawsuit

Filed under: Britney SpearsLegal MattersFamily

Even though Britney won't have to appear in court, her mother Lynne Spears has been ordered by a judge to testify in the libel and defamation lawsuit that Sam Lufti filed against Britney and her parents.

To refresh your memory, Britney's former manager, Lufti, is suing the Spears family for defamation, libel, and slander after Lynne wrote the book Through the Storm, which discussed his role in Britney's life before her public meltdown in 2008.

Like we said, due to her conservatorship, the judge has shot down Lufti's requests to get Britney to appear in court.

Her mother, however,

Gay Rights Group Pans Kobe

Gay Rights Group Pans Kobe

And rightly so!

The Human Rights Campaign says that Kobe Bryant’s homophobic slander (calling a ref, “fucking f**got) "perpetuates a culture of discrimination and hate" and noted that what he said was “horribly offensive.”

Said a spokesperson for the group:

"What a disgrace for Kobe Bryant to use such horribly offensive and distasteful language, especially when millions of people are watching."

He continued:

"Hopefully Mr. Bryant will recognize that as a person with such fame and influence, the use of such language not only offends millions of LGBT people around the world, but also perpetuates a culture of discrimination and hate that all of us, most notably Mr. Bryant, should be working to eradicate."

We don’t simply want an apology for what he said, we want a CHANGE in his behavior. He obviously lacks some self-control if he resorts to that sort of hatred after getting a foul!

Halle Attacks Gabriel With Another Racist Claim

halle-berry-gabriel-aubry-racist-claim-black.jpg

Halle Berry's camp is painting a really ugly picture of this guy. They really should use another tactic to get what they want from him other than viciously slinging mud.

New reports have surfaced claiming Halle's baby daddy, Gabriel Aubry, "went nuts" whenever someone would refer to their daughter as "black."

No, he wasn't trying to be politically correct. Supposedly, he would go off insisting that his baby was white. He allegedly got so angry when people referred to Nahla as "black," that he demanded a "retraction" whenever the word was used. These claims are adding to the already slanderous ones about Gabriel calling Halle the "N" word and the opinion of one old girlfriend, who referred to him as a "borderline racist."

But again we have to ask ourselves why is it that Halle's camp is leaking such horrible information? Whether it's true or not, both Halle and Gabriel should only be concerned with the well-being of their daughter. We're seeing none of that as they go back and forth with this grossness.

Such a shame. Such a waste of time and energy being so cruel.
