Christine Chisholm Filed Second Suit Against 2Chainz Over “Thot” Jibes
The woman who lost a lawsuit to 2Chainz after he branded her a “thot” in a viral video isn’t going down without a fight.
Christine Chisholm is seeking nearly $8 million in a new lawsuit against 2Chainz – real name Tauheed Epps – for communicating threats, ethnic intimidation and extortion, claiming his music video for “Watch Out” threatened her life, defamed her and incited strangers to hurt her.
“Tauheed Epps has been using his music to continue threatening Ms. Chisholm and Ms. Chisholm would like to collect monies for the ridicule and slander to her name, her face, her reputation, but also nominal damages from his YouTube version of “Watch Out,” Chisholm wrote in her complaint, which was originally filed in Superior Court in Mecklenberg County, N.C.
Chisholm’s suit is similar to the $5 million federal case she filed – and lost – against 2Chainz last year, when she said the rapper ruined her reputation when videoed her backstage at a concert and put the footage online with the hashtag #IzThisYoThot?
According to the new suit, Chisholm said she’s been in fear of her life ever since 2Chainz dropped the song “Watch Out,” which she said is about her suit against him. Chisholm said 2Chainz’s song lyrics say he’d shoot her dead. She said two strangers have beat her up, and she’s certain that 2Chainz sent them because he’s put a hit out on her.
“Ms. Chisholm was jumped by someone who was sent by 2Chainz in a club, and hospitalized not that long after in 2016 by someone in an all black car,” Chisholm wrote in court papers. “Which led Ms. Chisholm to believe that it was Mr. Tauheed Epps behind the series of events, due to the fact that he revealed his intentions eventually in a song called “Watch Out” where he admits that he does have a hit out for her and is trying to kill her.”
