The rapper and Sony Music Entertainment are charged by Samanta Stots and Sharie Johnson after showing their topless appearance in the promo for his song 'Summer Time'.

Rapper is at the center of a lawsuit by two women who appear topless in the promo for his song, "Summer Time".

Samantha Stotts and Sharie Johnson were filmed as they sunbathed and splashed in the sea wearing just bikini bottoms on a beach in Miami, Florida. The footage later appeared on the video for his track, "Summer Time"- and the two women have issued legal proceedings against Jones and Sony Music Entertainment for violating their civil rights.

Stotts tells the New York Daily News, "It makes me look like I'm a ho... It was supposed to be fun and natural. But then you have someone who turns it into a rap video, which is totally unacceptable... They made us look very risque. That's not my personality."Her pal Johnson adds, "I don't have a problem with rap-video girls. But I never wanted to do this."

The video has also angered bosses of clip-sharing website YouTube.com - it was taken down on Thursday, February 10 for violating the websites "policy on nudity or sexual content".
