Celebs are a litigious folk but normally they go after newspapers, magazines and people they think have used their images/words/brand without permission.
But sometimes they actually sue each other in cases from Katie Price and Chris Hughes' mysterious Whatsapp messages to some very serious accusations…
CHECK OUT THE CELEBRITY EXES WHO HAD MAJOR SOCIAL MEDIA BEEF AFTER THEY SPLIT...
1. Katie Price sued Chris Hughes
The whole Chris and Katie Whatsapp messages saga has been going on for a while now and so far Katie has kept pretty quiet about the whole thing. He has posted numerous rants on Twitter as well as screenshots of her ‘flirty’ messages. Katie claimed she had screenshots of the conversations where he had replied and allegedly showed The Sun the messages. But now she’s clearly had enough as she’s announced she’s suing him. She told Fabulous: “He's been given legal letters, but what I will say is they are not well-liked on the circuit. And of their five minutes of fame, they've got about two-and-a-half minutes left."
2. R. Kelly sued Jay-Z and vice versa
The rappers hit the road in 2004, touring the US together for their joint album Unfinished Business but it was plagued by rumours of drama and fighting. When Jay threw R Kelly off the tour, he sued him for $75million dollars claiming ‘sabotage and assault’. Jay counter sued but his case was thrown out and the pair settled out of court. Yikes.
3. Chris Brown sued Drake and vice versa
In 2012 Chris and Drake got into a fight, allegedly over Rihanna, in a New York nightclub where bottles were thrown and punches were dolled out. A bystander Romain Julian, filed a suit against the club and the rappers for the injuries he sustained, causing Drake and Chris to then sue each other, blaming the opposite parties for the drama. The club also sued them but it was thrown out.
4. The Kardashians sued Blac Chyna
Although they didn’t technically sue her, the Kardashians did legally block Chyna from trademarking her name Angela Renee Kardashian. They were successful after stating that she would ‘damage their reputation’.
5. Blac Chyna sued The Kardashians
After the Kardashians shut down Chyna, she decided to sue them in return. She alleged that the family had all had a part in her show, with Rob Kardashian, Rob & Chyna not being taken on for a second season. She also noted in her case that they had “slut-shamed” her after Rob had posted alleged nude photos of her on the internet. She sued for defamation, interference with contractual relations and interference with prospective economic relations.
6. Lindsay Lohan sued Pitbull
Pitbull’s 2011 song Give Me Everything wasn’t a hit with everyone when the line “I got it locked up like Lindsay Lohan” was in clubs everywhere. Lindsay sued the rapper saying it violated her privacy and caused her serious emotional distress. Pitbull initially apologised for it until his lawyers said the case was totally weak sauce. The courts agreed and threw the case out.
7. Rob Delaney (almost) sued Kim Kardashian
Comedian and Catastrophe star Rob claimed that Kim’s marriage to Kris Humphries was so clearly a scam that he had every right to sue her as a viewer. Plus he claimed he would also sue the KUWTK producer Ryan Seacrest. It was all a joke and it never made it to court but it did create A LOT of media attention because fans actually wanted it to be a real lawsuit. LOL.
8. Mel B sued Eddie Murphy
After denying that he was the father of Mel’s daughter Angel Iris, Eddie took a paternity test which proved he was. Mel then claimed he hadn’t paid a penny of child support and won the case. According to the Daily Mail, he has to pay $55k a month until their daughter turns 18.
