2 Chainz Sued Again Over Viral Video


2 Chainz

Christine Chisholm launched legal action against the I'm Different star, real name Tauheed Epps, in July (15), accusing him of calling her a "T.H.O.T.", an acronym for "that hoe over there", in a video taken backstage at one of his shows in 2014.

The footage went viral, and as a result, Chisholm claimed she lost her job and was subjected to abuse and harassment. She initially sought $5 million (£3.5 million) in damages, but filed new papers in November (15) asking for $10 million (£7 million) for slander, libel and defamation.

The lawsuit was dismissed in December (15), but Chisholm has launched a new suit for communicating threats, ethnic intimidation and extortion, claiming the rapper's video for Watch Out is a death threat aimed at her, which allegedly encourages strangers to inflict harm on her.
