Snoop Dogg's Alleged Extortionist Sues For Alleged Rape   Print 
Tuesday, 01 February 2005

Snoop DoggA celebrity makeup artist has filed a $25 million lawsuit against Snoop Dogg, alleging he and his associates drugged and sexually assaulted her two years ago.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, also claims that someone in the rapper/actor's entourage beat her after a taping of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" show, which Snoop Doog guest hosted in January 2003. In addition to Snoop Dogg and three of his associates, the suit names the Walt Disney Company, parent company of ABC Inc.

No reason was given for the alleged beating.

The lawsuit says she was drugged with spiked champagne sometime during the course of applying Snoop's makeup before four shows.

To answer the question as to why she waited so long to serve the suit, the plaintiff's attorney, Perry Wander, said she had tried to negotiate a settlement with attorneys for the media companies. Disney and ABC should be held responsible because they "failed to provide a safe working environment for my client," Wander said.

On December 11, Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, filed a lawsuit accusing the woman of trying to extort $5 million in exchange for keeping silent.

"It is truly unfortunate that [she] has chosen to follow the increasingly common path of misusing the legal system as a means of extracting financial gain from entertainers," Snoop Dogg's publicist says in a statement.

An ABC spokesperson said the allegations have "simply no merit."
