Star Files $55 Million Lawsuit Against City Councilman

star.jpgEmbattled radio shock jock Star plans to sue a New York City Councilman who he says defamed him after he made sexually threatening remarks about a rival DJ’s four-year-old daughter. According to a report in the New York Daily News, Star intends to file a $55 million defamation suit against Councilman John Liu (D-Queens) for what he characterizes as a “malicious crusade” that resulted in his arrest and dismissal from Power 105.1 in May. At the time of the incident, Councilman Liu publicly denounced Star’s rant directed at the daughter and wife of Hot 97’s DJ Envy, and called for a boycott of Power 105.1. In a statement, the former morning show host said, “Councilman Liu has continued to publicly make false, disparaging statements about me.” Councilman Liu reportedly countered, “We would much rather he go after me than 4-year-old girls.”

    star should sue, Envy was and still is hating on him. And the councilman should of never got involved due to the comments envy and miss jones made about star and his family members

  • psycho babble baby

    The biggest problem here is that Star is arrogant enough to think that this action will get him some kind of ‘justice’. Actually, it says more about the environment that we are all operating in to allow Star to have that kind of audacity. He should have gotten his ass kicked physically. Clear Channel is laughing all the way to the bank cause you have people of colour fighting and no attention is being paid to them monopolozing the airwaves and racist behaviour. Someone fuck Star up so we can have a real debate about Clear Channel.

    well actually clear channel is crying…so much that they are considering renewing his contract. since star has left it’s been a major decline in their money since no one is listening to the radio anymore. all he deserved was a fine, a good talkking to and a couple of new rules. now they have to pay the rest of his contract, and also a breach of contract and “hint hint” no one is listening to clear channel anymore!

    Star is far from broke, even after the lawyer fees. Clear channel will go broke before Star will. They are still paying his contract & their revenue is down. Go Star!
