B.G. In Hot Water for Filming Video Without Proper Authorization
Rapper B.G. has been hit with a $150,000 lawsuit from his neighbours in Louisiana after allegedly filming a video on their property without permission. The hip-hop star, a former member of Bryan 'Baby' Williams' Hot Boyz group, reportedly shot the promo for "My Hood" on his street without the appropriate city permits.
Shyrl Patterson Bagneris and John Bagneris filed documents in the Eastern District Louisiana court alleging the rapper, real name Christopher Dorsey, trespassed on their property with a film crew of more than 40 people. The couple sent a cease and desist letter to Dorsey at the time but allege the rapper ignored the warning and continued to promote the video without the proper authorization.
The legal note reads, "Plaintiffs are upstanding individuals in their community who do not wish to be associated with rap music, B.G., Chipper City Records and other defendants associated with the music video My Hood."
They are seeking a trial by jury and at least $150,000 in damages for unjust enrichment, trespass to land and intrusion on seclusion, according to AllHipHop.com.
