Bow Wow faces action from angry porn star after video lift

September 2012



Rapper Bow Wow is being sued by French porn star Celine ‘Katsuni’ Tran over allegations he used footage of her dancing in a music video without permission. Tran says that she appeared as a club dancer in a promo video for French band Electronic Conspiracy, but that Bow Wow and label Universal then sampled that footage for the pop promo for his track ‘Drank In My Cup’ earlier this year, without her permission¬†and that the rapper engages in “intimate activities” with a Katsuni body double. As Tran is not the owner of the copyright to the clip (presumably owned by Electronic Conspiracy or their own label) Tran has sued for publicity rights violations, unfair business practices, false association and unjust enrichment, demanding over $75,000 in damages.
