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.

Becks Sues The Lying Hooker AND In Touch Weekly!

Filed under: Legal MattersDavid Beckham

Becks' lying hooker bitch has been served!

Bosnian Hooker Irma Nici is being sued by David Beckham for making claims that he paid to have sex with her. Beckham is also suing the magazine, In Touch Weekly, for publishing the story.

We told you guys you were headed for trouble, ITW!

Here's what a source had to say about Irma Nici's reaction when she got served:

"She looked totally unfussed as she looked through the writ for the first time. She just smiled and didn't look bothered. It is yet another outrageous show from her."

She won't be smiling soon, and neither will ITW. Here's an excerpt from Beckham's complaint against the magazine:

"The defamatory statements about Beckham are libellous and slanderous. These statements falsely accuse Beckham of criminal and adulterous activity.The defamatory statements expose him to hatred, contempt, ridicule and obloquy because they inaccurately portray Beckham as an unfaithful husband who put his wife's health at risk by engaging in sexual acts with prostitutes."

We would NOT want to be on the wrong end of this lawsuit. Looks like Irma Nici and ITW may be in some serious trouble!

Do U still have any doubts about Becks' innocence?

Prostitution Whore Drama!

Filed under: Legal MattersReality TV

Oh shiz! Bet this is gonna be good.

Danielle Staub is being court ordered to attend a mediation hearing with her ex-husband Kevin Maher on Friday morning in Orange County.

Maher is suing the Real Housewives star for slander and asking $5 million in damages. He claims Danielle spread stories that he raped her on a bed of broken glass, forced her to play Russian Roulette, and also murdered her dog.

WTF?!

The judge is hoping that the mediation can "facilitate a resolution of the case before it goes to trial."

"I will listen to the mediator … but if the results are not fair and reasonable, I look forward to my day in court when I can call [Danielle] out on her lies," said Maher. "I want to be vindicated for the horrific crimes she falsely accuses me of."

We don't blame him.
