Fabolous Heads to Trial for $85 Million Lawsuit
Brooklyn rapper Fabolous is scheduled to head to court this week to face an $85 million lawsuit filed by Philadelphia radio personality Lisa "Golden Girl" Natson.
In the suit, Natson charges that she was assaulted by Fab's bodyguard after her radio station, Power 99's annual Powerhouse concert back in 2004. The DJ was denied a ride on the rapper's tour bus, and his bodyguard "got really nasty." Natson claims that she then "joked" that she would stop playing the rapper's hit 'Breathe' on her radio show, and his bodyguard picked her up and slammed her to the ground, injuring her shoulder and back, while Fab looked on.
The trial is reportedly to start this week, though Fab denies that he was involved when the incident occurred. "I was on my tour bus and did not witness the alleged incident so I'm not aware of any details concerning the matter," Fabolous said in a 2004 interview. "I never touched or did anything to Golden Girl, therefore, I am not involved and do not have anything further to say or do with that incident."
Natson recently published a book entitled 'Sex and Celebrities: The Truth, The Whole Truth, The Naked Truth,' in which she describes a graphic sexual encounter with Lil' Kim, which was later revealed to be fantasy.
