As if Bow Wow needed any more negative press about his mula. The rapper – who has been stormed with rumors of financial hardship – dropped a “Drank In My Cup” viral video a while back that featured a French adult model that goes by the name Celine Tran aka “Katsuni”.
Celine caught on to the visuals and decided to take action and hit him with a $80,000 bill for her unsuspected cameo.
Bow Wow has been in the industry long enough to know that you can’t use images/videos of people with out their permission. Then again in his defense who would really expect to be sued for a viral internet video? Times are changing fast.
Adult film star Celine Tran – known as “Katsuni” — sued Bow Wow back in July 2012, claiming he stole clips of her pole dancing in a music video for a French band called Electronic Conspiracy and then used a ton of the footage in his music video “Drank in My Cup” … sans permission.
Bow Wow didn’t even respond to the lawsuit, so a federal judge ordered him to pony up $79,346.07 (damages + attorneys’ fees) … and stop with the footage STAT.
Welp, sucks to be you.
