Update: Prince Is NOT Suing His Fans Now
It looks like Prince has had a change of heart and won’t be suing his fans for millions of dollars.
Yesterday, HipHollywood told you about the Purple One’s plans to sue 22 of his fans for $1 million each because they uploaded live concert footage to the internet. Now, Prince has decided to drop the lawsuit which would’ve probably had his fans filing for bankruptcy.
According to TMZ, the “Purple Rain” singer felt the suit was no longer needed, “Because of the recent pressure, the bootleggers have now taken down the illegal downloads and are no longer engaging in piracy,” Prince’s lawyer stated. He went on to say, “We recognize the fans craving for as much material as possible, but we’d prefer they get it from us directly than from third parties who are scalpers rather than real fans of our work.”
