Porn Star Suing Bow Wow

( 4UMF NEWS ) Porn Star Suing Bow Wow:

Adult film star Celine “Katsuni” Tran has reportedly sued Cash Money Records rapper Bow Wow for stealing one of her dances for his “Drank in My Cup” remix music video.

Details of the lawsuit hit the internet:

Rapper Bow Wow swiped a dancer’s performance from another band’s music video and used it in his “Drank in My Cup” music video without permission, a French porn star claims in Federal Court. Celine Tran, professionally known as “Katsuni,” claims she appeared as a “club dancer” in a music video for the French band Electronic Conspiracy. She says rapper Bow Wow (Shad Gregory Moss) used that dance performance in his “Drank in My Cup” music video without her permission to promote his upcoming album, “Underrated.” He allegedly posted the music video on his official YouTube page and linked to it on Twitter on April 20.

Katsuni is reportedly seeking nearly $80,000 in damages.

Tran says her dancing dominates the music video, taking up one minute and 20 seconds of the two-minute, 10-second video. She also claims the video features a Katsuni body double “engaged in intimate activities with Bow Wow.” “At no time did plaintiff permit footage of her dance performance in the Electronic Conspiracy music video to be used for any other purpose or in conjunction with any other musician other than Electronic Conspiracy,” the lawsuit states. Tran has won several awards in the adult film industry and has appeared on the cover of Penthouse. Genesis magazine named her one of the “Ten Most Popular Porn Stars in America.” She wants Bow Wow and music label Universal Music Group to pay more than $75,000 plus punitive damages for publicity rights violations, unfair business practices, false association and unjust enrichment.
