While he will most definitely be going to court for that altercation, he has succeeded at getting the Coinye West Bitcoin makers to stop using his image.

Kanye’s lawyers filed a lawsuit against the anonymous makers of the Coinye West crypto-currency last week for using his image. The lawsuit was targeted at both the makers of the coins along with Amazon for operating a digital currency exchange and providing web hosting to the company.

The New York Daily News reports that the suit stated that “With each day that passes, Mr. West’s reputation is irreparably harmed,” and that “Consumers are likely to mistakenly believe that Mr. West is the source of these digital coins.”

The makers have not fully given up however, they have changed the name to “The Gay Fish,” referencing the South Park parody of Kanye West.

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.
