Chisholm, who is representing herself in the suit, said as a result of the rapper’s actions, she’s received death threats, and has been menaced by one of 2Chainz’s people. She said an unknown person scratched up her car and her family is also worried about their safety.
Chisholm said the stress caused her to attempt suicide “on numerous occasions after the incident,” her court papers state. She’s suffered mental anguish, her reputation has been ruined can’t work because of 2Chainz’s video, according to her complaint.
The North Carolina woman is seeking $7.8 million in damages – $4.6 million – or $1 for each time “Watch Out” was viewed online, $250,000 in punitive damages, and $3 million for the extortion and ethnic intimidation claims.
But 2Chainz isn’t taking the suit lying down. He successfully had the case moved from Mecklenberg County Superior Court to the federal North Carolina District Court, and his lawyers filed a motion this month to throw the case out because they said it’s essentially the same case as the one Chisholm previously lost.
A judge has given Chisholm two weeks to respond to 2Chainz’s motion.
