Christine Chisholm’s $8 Million Lawsuit Against 2 Chainz Dismissed
2 Chainz scored a legal victory against the woman who said he humiliated her when he branded her a “thot” in an online video.
A judge Tuesday granted 2 Chainz’s request to toss Christine Chisholm’s lawsuit, which accused the rapper of defamation, invasion of privacy, emotional distress and unfair or deceptive trade practices for releasing his song “Watch Out,” which she said threatened her life, and to caused her to be harassed in her hometown of Charlotte.
Chisholm unsuccessfully sued 2 Chainz in 2015 for leaking a 2014 viral vid of her backstage at his concert under the hastag, #IzThatYoThot, and allegedly threatening her afterwards. But Chisholm said the new suit was based on several instances of harassment, violence and intimidation from the rapper’s goons after he released “Watch Out.”
The woman said since 2 Chainz dropped “Watch Out,” his associates brandished a gun at her, tried to run her over and shot up cars that were parked at her family’s home.
2 Chainz argued in court papers that Chisholm didn’t have a leg to stand on in the suit because she’d already sued him – and lost – last year in local courts. The judge agreed, and ruled that Chisholm’s case was a no go because her recent claims were based on what happened during her original “thot” suit, and she should have raised them in that litigation.
