Former Dallas Cowboys star Michael Irvin has settled a Florida lawsuit filed by a woman who claimed he sexually assaulted her at a hotel in 2007.
The incident may have been years ago but the lawsuit was filed right before Irvin was to appear on last season’s “Dancing With The Stars” competition.
Irvin’s attorney, Larry Friedman was approached by the woman’s lawyer ordering Irvin to pay the woman $1 million, or a lawsuit would be filed to coincide with the Super Bowl, which was being played Feb. 7, 2010 in Miami.
Friedman called the lawsuit “civil extortion.”
According to the woman’s claim, Irvin got her drunk and took her to his hotel room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood.
She claims the Hall Of Fame receiver raped her and another man forced her to perform oral sex. However, there was no physical evidence because the woman waited more than 2 weeks to report the incident.
Even after a 2-week wait and 3 years passing before the suit, somehow the ‘athlete-hotel-sex scandal’ still pays off.
Irvin’s $100 million defamation countersuit will be dropped as part of the settlement.
A song on Game‘s recently released Purp & Patron mixtape may land the left coast rapper in court.
In a recent interview with Hiphopdx.com, Chuck Taylor revealed that their may be a possible lawsuit filed by producer RZA over his use of the song, “Heartbreak” which was featured on the two-disc mixtape offering released last weak.
“I think RZA [is] tryin’ to sue about ['Heartbreaker'] or somethin’,” Game tells the site. “That’s f^ckin’ crazy. Like, I don’t even know how RZA sues The Game.”
Apparently, RZA concocted the beat for Game’s awaited R.E.D album, but could not get the sample for the song cleared and therefore asked Game not to use the track. Game instead released the song on his latest mixtape effort, to the chagrin of the Wu-Tang head.
Game says there must have been some miscommunication,
“[Rza] came to the studio and brought the ['Heartbreaker'] track to me,” says Game. “He’s like, ‘Yo Game, this is for you. You can have that.’ Those are his words.”
Game says despite the possible court case over the track, there is no love lost,
“I still got nothin’ but respect for RZA [and] the whole Wu, and all of that,” says oft-beefing rapper. “I’m good. I’m good friends with Ghostface [Killah] and [Raekwon] and Method [Man]. Those are my dudes. I would never speak down on RZA or any of those dudes for that matter – not that any of those dudes [have anything] to do with this conversation. But with the Wu, you gotta speak to a pack. It’s all love.”
