Lawsuits: Johnny Gill Being Sued For Going Ham On Twitter When A New Song Of His Leaked

Bet Johnny wished he would have never pressed ‘SEND’ now huh?

According to TMZ reports:

New Edition singer Johnny Gill waged a ferociously bitter Twitter war against one of his former record producers last week — calling her “f**king nuts” — and now she’s taking his ass to court.

The producer, Ira DeWitt — wife of St. Louis Cardinals owner Bill DeWitt — claims Johnny was PISSED when a song rumored to be on his upcoming album was leaked on the Internet … and he wrongly blamed her.

According to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in L.A. County Superior Court, DeWitt claims she had nothing to do with the leak — but Gill attacked her on Twitter anyway … calling her “deranged” and “f**kng nuts.”
DeWitt also claims Gill tweeted defamatory statements about her business … saying her record company is a sham and that she only liked the leaked recording because she had a “hard on” for one of the song’s producers.

DeWitt claims Gill has damaged her reputation — so she’s suing for unspecified damages … AND she wants the judge to force Gill to stop trashing her on Twitter.

Calls to Gill have not been returned.

It’s definitely a sign of the times when you have to go to a judge to get someone to stop telling the truth about you bashing you on a social networking site.
