Kendall Jenner to Pay $90,000 in Fyre Festival Lawsuit

Kendall Jenner has settled the lawsuit concerning her involvement with the 2017 Fyre Festival.
The model has agreed to pay $ 90,000 in the settlement over the now-deleted Instagram photo she posted in January 2017 to promote the failed music festival, according to court documents filed Tuesday.
Jenner was sued in August 2019 in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York by Gregory Messer, who is recovering money for creditors that lost money investing in the festival. Other celebrities involved in the Fyre Festival, including model Emily Ratajkowski and musicians Migos, Pusha T and Lil Yachty were also sued.
Court documents state that Jenner was paid $ 275,000 for the Instagram post and that the post did not specify that she was being paid to promote the festival. The court documents also state that Jenner suggested in the post’s caption that her brother-in-law, Kanye West, would be performing at the festival.
The Fyre Festival has resulted in several lawsuits since the music event failed to come to fruition. The festival spawned Hulu and Netflix documentaries detailing how the Bahamas-based music event lured guests on false claims of celebrity attendees and luxury accommodations, but later presented guests with FEMA disaster relief tents, food shortages and no musical

Producer Claims Lil Nas X Lifted “Rodeo” Beat In Lawsuit

2019 iHeartRadio Music Festival And Daytime Stage

Source: Michael Tran / Getty

Lil Nas X has a lawsuit on his hands after a track from his debut EP 7, “Rodeo” has been targeted as an almost identical rip of a producer’s original composition. Brandon Lee says his production was lifted for the track without his permission, and he’s named both X and Cardi B in a lawsuit.

TMZ breaks it down:

Record producer Brandon Lee says he wrote a song called “gwenXdonlee4-142” and it was incorporated into a song called “Broad Day.”

After the release of “Broad Day,” Lee says Cardi B and Lil Nas X released “Rodeo” this past June.

Lee says in his lawsuit, they’re both built on a 4-measure phrase outlining the cord progression E, F, G, F, E. He also says the tempo is the same, both songs utilize guitar and wind instruments, the drumbeats are the same, the chord progression is similar … among other things.

Lee is also suing X’s label, Sony, as well.

Struggle Sorceress Azealia Banks Hit With $137K Lawsuit Over Credit Card Debt

Azealia Banks Performs At The Electric Brixton London

Azealia Banks once again is turning heads, not for her formidable musical ability but for reasons outside her profession. The talented, if struggle-adjacent, rapper was served with papers regarding a six-figure lawsuit over credit card debt.

The Blast reports:

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, a New York process server claims to have tracked down the New York rapper on April 5 at 10:17 AM.

The docs state the server claims Banks came outside of her New York City apartment to collect a UPS delivery, and when the delivery man asked her last name, she responded, “Banks.”

The server says he proceeded to hand over the docs but claims the woman changed her tune and told him Banks lived there but she was not home and refused to give up her name.

Tough times.

Perhaps Banks will address this in her new podcast series.

Elon Musk Hopes To Block Ex Grimes & Azealia Banks From Tweet Lawsuit Hearing

Elon Musk during 'Elon Musk Answers Your Questions!' at SXSW

Source: WENN.com / WENN

Elon Musk triggered a fraud investigation and a fine from the Securities Exchange Commission after he fired off a tweet that he was going to take his company Tesla public at $ 420 per share. At the time, the tweet was made with his ex-girlfriend Grimes and Azealia Banks in his presence and investors in a lawsuit against him with to subpoena the women but Musk’s legal team is hoping to block the move.

Bloomberg reports:

“It is readily apparent that this is more of an effort to sensationalize these proceedings than a legitimate attempt to preserve evidence,” attorney Dean Kristy said in a filing Thursday in federal court in San Francisco.

The Tesla shareholders say the former girlfriend, Canadian singer Claire Elise Boucher, also known as Grimes, may have first-hand knowledge about what Musk was thinking Aug. 7 when he shocked the world with a tweet: “Am considering taking Tesla private at $ 420. Funding secured.”

The investors claim Musk and Tesla manipulated the company’s share price. They allege Musk lied about funding to push the shares higher and ambush short sellers betting against the company.

The investors cite news media accounts placing Musk in the company of Boucher, and rapper Azealia Banks, around the time of the tweet. They contend it’s not unreasonable to subpoena Boucher and Banks to ensure the preservation of anything in writing that might be relevant to the lawsuit — Twitter and Instagram messages in particular.

Banks responded to news of the filing by Musk’s attorney, writing, “This is going to get extremely ugly” before deleting the post.

Sexual Assault Lawsuit Against Russell Simmons Tossed Out

2017 Make A Wish Gala

Source: Tiffany Rose / Getty

Russell Simmons can claim a mild victory against the mounting claims that he sexually assaulted a number of women. One woman who made such a claim and filed a lawsuit seeking $ 5 million in damages saw her case dismissed, which sometimes signals something was worked out behind doors.

TMZ reports:

Jennifer Jarosik sued Simmons for millions of dollars, claiming he’d sexually assaulted her after she denied his advances. According to docs, the suit was dismissed Wednesday morning. It was dismissed with prejudice … meaning she can’t refile.

Typically, that’s a sign there’s been a settlement. Reps for Simmons had no comment.

The dismissal comes a couple weeks after Simmons filed a pretty strong response to the lawsuit, claiming Jennifer had sent him text messages and nude photos after the alleged assault.

Despite this positive uptick, Simmons still faces accusations from over a dozen other women.

Public Enemy’s Flava Flav Files Lawsuit Against Chuck D & Gary G-Wiz

Since the 1980s, pioneering rap crew Public Enemy has remained one of Hip-Hop’s most notable acts and continued their impressive run with an album released this summer. Flava Flav, the hype man to lead rapper Chuck D, has filed a lawsuit against his longtime bandmate for missing royalties over the years.

TMZ reports:

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Flav says he and Chuck have a long-standing agreement to share profits from their music, live concerts and merchandise — but he hasn’t seen a royalty check in several years. Flav says he co-wrote more than 50 of the group’s songs, and he’s especially pissed because Chuck’s still getting paid.

What’s worse … the rapper claims his voice and image were used without his consent on the new PE album, “Nothing Is Quick in the Desert” … released in June. Flav says he requested $ 75k for the record, but only got $ 7,500. He thought he was going to get the remainder later, but it never came.

Flav’s also going after producer Gary G-Wiz for making a deal to create action figures of Public Enemy without his knowledge. In the suit, Flav says Gary got cash from the toy company, but he got zilch.

Gary G-Wiz is a member of the Bomb Squad production crew that helped build the basis of the Public Enemy sound.

Quincy Jones Wins Lawsuit Against Michael Jackson’s Estate, Awarded $9.4M

Quincy Jones is getting his dough. The iconic musician and composer has won his lawsuit against Michael Jackson’s and has been awarded a cool $ 9.4M. 

The New York Times reports that a Los Angeles jury agreed that Jones has been shortchanged for the use of music he produced in the posthumous Jackson films This Is It and a pair Cirque du Soleil shows.

Interestingly, Jones filed the lawsuit against MJ’s estate in 2013, claiming that he was owed $ 30M. The estate countered that he was owed only $ 392,000 because of an accounting error.

This is where we point out that Thriller, which Jones produced, is the first album to sell 30 million copies. Jones also produced Off The Wall.

“This lawsuit was never about Michael,” said Jones via a statement. “It was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created.”

A$AP Rocky Fires Back At Former Manager With Counter Lawsuit

A$ AP Rocky isn’t keen on settling. Especially in the case of his former manager Geno Sims, who says the Harlem rap star swindling him out of a cool $ 850,000 during the course of their working relationship.

In new documents obtained by The Jasmine Brand, the 27-year-old personality (real name Rakim Mayers) is countersuing Sims, alleging that Sims breached their contract by disclosing information about his finances, personal life and his business to others.

Rocky also attributes any confusion as to what Sims claims he’s owed to the new negotiation they reached when the PMF brought in a second manager circa 2011 to help with his burgeoning celebrity. He says the paperwork filed at the time of Sims’ termination in 2014 explicitly states he wouldn’t be giving him one more red cent.

It appears this issue will be heading to court in the near future.

Women Kicked Off Napa Valley Wine Train File $11 Million Lawsuit [VIDEO]

The so-called loud Black women of the Sistahs on the Reading Edge who were kicked off the Napa Valley Wine Train in August, are looking to get the last laugh.

They recently filed a discrimination lawsuit demanding $ 11 million in damages–$ 1 million for each of the plaintiffs: 10 African-Americans and one white woman.

Reports the Associated Press:

The 11 women sued Napa Valley Wine Train Inc., claiming they were singled out because of race and seeking $ 11 million in damages. The company said in a statement that it takes allegations of discrimination very seriously and has hired a former FBI agent to investigate.

The women said many of them were part of a book club that meets regularly and had gathered on the train to discuss a romance novel. Before the train left the station in Napa, a train employee asked them to quiet down because they were offending other passengers, they said.

The same employee admonished them a second time before telling them that police officers would be waiting for them when the train reached St. Helena, the suit says. They were escorted through several cars as other passengers stared and then off the train and into a dirt lot where police were waiting, according to the suit.

“That was the most humiliating experience that I have ever had in my entire life,” Lisa Johnson, 47, said with tears in her eyes, appearing with some of the other women at a news conference announcing the lawsuit. “This is 2015, and this just cannot happen again.”

The wine train issued an apology after the women were ejected, promising additional training for employees on cultural diversity and sensitivity and free passes for a future trip.

“I took this case because it’s an egregious case,” said the women’s attorney, Waukeen McCoy. “This lawsuit highlights that blacks are still being treated differently in America.”

Anthony Giaccio, the Napa Valley Wine Train CEO called the women’s removal “a 100 percent customer service fail on our part” just in case of you closeted racists and new types are accusing the women of race-baiting.

Reps For Chris Brown Call San Jose Shooting Lawsuit “Frivolous”

Chris Brown is facing a new batch of legal drama but this time around, the R&B superstar isn’t easily copping to the blame.

Publicists for the 26-year-old singer are telling Hip-Hop Wired that although the January 11 San Jose shooting was indeed unfortunate, the days of their client being unfairly targeted by lawsuits is coming to an end.

“It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed. However this is a completely frivolous lawsuit,” Breezy’s reps say in a statement.

“We expect that the case will be dismissed and in future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown, we plan to seek damages from all parties and their lawyers.”

Paul Briley, 22, was one of five people who were shot while attending the private “Chris Brown’s Capricorn Bash” at the Fiesta Nightclub on Monterey Highway. He recently filed a lawsuit citing negligence on the singer’s part, claiming his celebrity brings violence everywhere he goes and his security could have been a lot tighter. His legal team also inexplicably threw the Rihanna incident in the melee.

Briley is asking for unspecified damages for mental anguish, time missed from work and more.

Jay Z Asks Judge To Ignore His Riches & Rap Sheet In “Big Pimpin” Lawsuit

The long-delayed “Big Pimpin” lawsuit is finally set to be underway and defendant Jay Z is taking no chances when it boils down to coming out-of-pocket (more than he’s supposed to).

TMZ is reporting that the megastar rapper born Shawn Carter is asking a judge to disallow the future jury from glancing into his finances and his criminal history in order to have their opinions being swayed as the case develops.

To backtrack for those not in the know, the sampled foundation behind Jay Z and Timbaland’s 1999 smash hit was a 1960s Egyptian song titled “Khosara Khosara,” and the artist’s heir, Abdel Halim Hafez, is claiming the Hip-Hop pair not only infringed on the copyright of the record, but lyrically used it in a demeaning way. The case has been eight years in the making and will finally go to court in October, where Jay Z is expected to testify.

Carter, easily one of the most successful–commercially and financially–Hip-Hop artists to ever grace a mic, values at net worth of $ 550 million according to a very recent Forbes report. Allowing a prosecutor to paint the picture that he got rich stealing from unknown artists would spell a certain doom for the case. On the contrary, the plaintiff is claiming that since Jay Z “stole” the “Big Pimpin” sample, his criminal past is very much on the table here.

We’re guessing an out-of-court settlement is also out?

Dr. Dre & Ice Cube Want Off Suge Knight Hit-And-Run Lawsuit

Before Straight Outta Compton rose to a historic box office weekend, there was Suge Knight killing Terry Carter nearby the set of a promotional video spot used to promote the film.

Although N.W.A members Dr. Dre & Ice Cube were on location, they feel their presence did not give just cause to Suge Knight’s behavior and they both have filed motion to get their names removed from the wrongful death lawsuit.

Via The Hollywood Reporter:

The lawsuit against those involved with Straight Outta Compton alleges that the defendants should have known about the tensions between Dr. Dre and Knight and should have made security provisions to create a safe environment. It’s also alleged that Dr. Dre and Cube are vicariously liable for Sloan’s conduct.

In a demurrer filed last week, Dr. Dre and Cube say they committed no malfeasance, that their only affirmative act was a “specific request” that Sloan direct Knight to leave camp. This, they say, “did not create undue risks for anyone, let alone Carter.”

The two also say they owed no duty to Carter, that Knight’s assault wasn’t foreseeable, and raise the prospect of what might have happened if they allowed Knight to stay at base camp.

According to their motion, “These allegations plainly demonstrate that allowing Suge to remain at the base camp posed a serious risk that Suge could have injured someone at the camp — including Dr. Dre, Bone or one of the numerous cast and crew working on the film. Certainly, the risk that Suge might leave the base camp and proceed to his fatal confrontation with Carter was no more foreseeable than the possibility that Suge would injure or kill someone else if he had been permitted to stay.”

The former N.W.A members represented by attorney Alexander Cote say that there’s no proximate cause connecting their actions to Carter’s fatality, and argue that public policy and common sense can’t possibly demand “tolerating the presence of a dangerous and violent criminal with a grudge.”

Suge Knight is currently awaiting trial for murder of Carter and attempted murder of Sloan.

Dame Dash Asks Judge To Toss Loisaidas Lawsuit

Damon Dash isn’t letting the recent Loisaidas movie lawsuit go away without a fight. Dash and Kanye West were swept up in a lawsuit filed earlier this year, and this month the entrepreneur asked the judge in the case to throw out the case over the use of the Loisaidas name for the film.

The term “Loisaidas,” a slang term for the Lower East Side of Manhattan, is also the name of a band fronted by Michael Medina, who trademarked the name. Medina filed suit again tWest and Dash, who serve as executive producers for the movie, last spring. Dash countered Medina’s legal jab on Aug. 4, and he’s saying that Medina cannot claim the name as his own.

More from an exclusive Bossip report:

Dash asked a judge Aug. 4 to throw out musician Michael Medina’s case against him, which claims Dash used the term “Loisaidas” as his film title even though Medina’s group trademarked the name. Medina’s suit, which was filed in April in New York federal court, alleges Dash’s violent “Loisaidas” movie defiled Medina’s Latin music group of the same name, and has confused fans.

But Dash said his decision to use “Loisaidas” was protected by the First Amendment. Dash also said “Loisaidas” – a Spanish slang term for people from the Lower East Side of Manhattan – can’t be owned by anyone because it’s a common word.

“Plaintiff cannot commandeer and monopolize a term that, as Plaintiff admits, is a common part of local “Spanglish” vernacular and prevent others from using that term,” Dash’s lawyer’s said in his answer to Medina’s suit. “In particular, “Loisaidas” has been used for over 40 years to identify residents who live in the Lower East Side…”

Dash also wants Medina to pay his legal fees connected to the ordeal.

Jay Z Wins Lawsuit Against Former Roc-A-Fella Engineer

Jay Z emerged victorious after a nearly one-year legal debacle with his former engineer.

According to The Hollywood Reporter:

Jay Z and Roc Nation have prevailed in a lawsuit from Chauncey Mahan, a sound engineer who participated in the recording of Vol 3… The Life and Times of S. Carter, which produced hit tracks like “Big Pimpin,” “Do it Again” and “Things That U Do.”

Mahan’s lawsuit came to a New York federal court in July 2014 after a dramatic episode.

After working with Jay Z in the late 1990s, classified as an independent contractor, Mahan kept masters, outtakes, and other unpublished material on his harddrive. Mahan says in 2000, he let executives at Roc-A-Fella know he was in possession of this material, but never received a response.

Then in 2014, Mahan claims that a “sting operation” was the tail end of Roc Nation’s request to meet at his storage facility in Los Angeles. He alleges that Jay Z’s reps called the Los Angeles Police Department to seize the music and accused him of being in possession of stolen property, but only after cataloging the inventory.

Mahan wasn’t charged with a crime, but he would then hit back with a lawsuit that sought a declaratory judgment under the Copyright Act that thanks to his original contributions and particular work status, he should be deemed a co-owner on 41 sound recordings.

On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Lorna Schofield came back with an analysis of those claims, determining that Mahan had come to court too late.

Schofield gave three reasons why Mahan was time-barred from pursuing co-ownership: Roc-A-Fella’s registrations with the United States Copyright Office, the Albums’ packaging, and the absence of royalties all gave Mahan constructive notice or a reason to know of his injury well before he filed a lawsuit.

“Plaintiff asserts that a reasonable person would not necessarily have reason to know that royalties were owed to him in this situation,” writes the judge. “Considering the depth of Plaintiff’s experience in the music industry and the substantial commercial success of the Albums, this assertion strains credulity.”

Mahan’s argument that the statute of limitations only begins upon an express repudiation finds no favor with the judge nor the theory that the label’s copyrights to the albums didn’t necessarily mean it was the exclusive copyright holder for each and every song. Then, there’s the unpublished material. “Roc-A-Fella correctly asserts… that it owns the copyrights to the unpublished works as ‘derivative’ or ‘underlying’ parts of the Albums,” writes the judge.

Mahan also strikes out in an additional claim that Jay Z and his crew committed conversion and trespass to chattels — essentially stole — the masters, outtakes, and other unpublished material on his harddrive via the allegedly “sham” LAPD sting.

The judge finds that whatever Jay Z’s reps told to the cops — true or not — the communications were privileged. The judge notes there are other remedies to filing a false police report such as criminal prosecution for perjury. Almost needless to say, the LAPD has made no noise that it’s investigating the hip hop entrepreneur.

Mahan was represented by James Freeman. The defendants were repped by Andrew Bart at Jenner & Block.

Another win for Jigga Man.

Kanye West & Dame Dash Catch A Loisaidas Lawsuit

First One Direction breaks up, then Kanye West and Dame Dash make up and now they have to wake up to more bullsh*t.

After revealing their joint plans for movies, especially the first-born Loisaidas series, the two former Roc Boys have been accused of jacking the name of a Latin music group.

Reports TMZ:

A member of a Latin musical group claims Kanye West and Damon Dash shamelessly ripped him off by stealing the group’s name and tarnishing it to boot, and now he’s taking them to court.

“Loisaidas” is a Latin musical duo that’s been kicking around NYC since 2008. “Loisaidas” — a slang term for the Lower East Side — is also the name of a new movie executive produced by Kanye and Damon.

Kanye and Damon just recently reunited after their days together at the old Roc-A-Fella Records, and they decided to collaborate on the movie.

“Loisaidas” singer Michael Medina believes the movie tarnishes his brand because it promotes murder, violence, and drug sales.

Medina wants a judge to halt the project and sock them with damages.

Justin Bieber’s Team Insist Calvin Klein Ads Weren’t Photoshopped, Threaten Lawsuit

Justin Bieber was recently revealed as the new Marky Mark, a.k.a. the new face of Calvin Klein. But now there are claims that the photos of a bulky Biebs in his underwear were Photoshopped.

Website BreatheHeavy.com released the allegedly unretouched photo of Bieber as a GIF, which suggests that his muscles, bulge and hands have been increased in size. An image from a behind-the-scenes video also shows him with less body hair than in the official ads.

Bieber’s team has denied any use of Photoshop on the ads, according to a letter obtained by TMZ claiming that the photo from BreatheHeavy is fake. His team also apparently sent BreatheHeavy a cease-and-desist letter, requesting them to remove the GIF and admit to falsehood. The website has since responded, deleting the image from Instagram, apologizing to Bieber and retracting their claims in the following statement:

Team Bieber sent BreatheHeavy a cease and desist letter because of the alleged un-retouched Calvin Klein photo we posted, asking we remove the picture in question as well as provide a retraction.

Because BreatheHeavy is not about making anyone feel bad or intentionally stirring the pot (and are definitely not here for lawsuits), we shall retract the story per request.

We sincerely apologize to Bieber for the hit to his ego and to the millions of tweens on social media we upset.

Calvin Klein also posted a photo of a shirtless Bieber to their Instagram on Friday night with the caption, “Can’t touch this.”

Can’t touch this. Flashback to @justinbieber live onstage during #fashionrocks. #mycalvins #fbf

Family Of John Crawford Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Although video footage appears to contradict the stories of the authorities regarding the death of John Crawford, a grand jury decided not to bring charges against the officers. Now the family of Crawford, who was shot while walking around Walmart with a BB gun he picked up in jest, has filed a negligent death lawsuit and accused the Beavercreek Walmart of leaving the toy gun laying open on an unlocked shelf for days.

Authorities have also faced criticism, after it was revealed that they had roughed up the fiance of Crawford directly after he was killed.

According to the family’s lawyers, “[Walmart] had every reason to know that someone might mistake a BB gun for a real gun. That gun was not secured like other weapons. … This gun was left unpackaged on a shelf, and in our understanding, it was left there for two days.
