George Clinton - George Clinton To Expose Legal Hell On Reality Show

Funk icon George Clinton has vowed to use his new reality Tv show to highlight his various legal battles over the copyright to his songs.

The Funkadelic legend is embroiled in numerous ongoing lawsuits over the use of his back catalogue, and in January (13) he was ordered to hand over the rights to four of his classic tracks to pay off a $1.5 million (£967,000) debt to his former lawyers.

Earlier this year (13), he announced he will be following in the footsteps of rocker Ozzy Osbourne by launching his own family-based reality show called The Clintons, and now the star has revealed his legal battles will be at the core of the programme.

Clinton tells Uncut magazine, "I'm doing a reality show with my family, with my son Tracy, my six grandkids, Scott Thompson, Brandi - it's a big family thing. A bit like (The Osbournes) but most of them are, like, musicians, rappers and everything...

"We got to come up with new ways to get the music across, so we're doing this reality show. So we can expose all the noses out there, stealing the copyrights and taking people's music and money. This is all gonna be part of the reality show, the copyright fight, plus we (are) still kicking a** onstage."
