Why Prince Is Suing His Fans For $22 Million!

Published

on

Prince is is going after 22 of his fans for posting live concert videos on the Internet and popular social media websites.

The pop icon, who has been more than honest about his hatred for the Internet, is suing “22 Internet users” for a whopping $1 million each.

In a lawsuit filed on Monday in the Northern District of California, Prince Rogers Nelson, the star’s legal name, accuses the Internet users of “massive infringement and bootlegging” of his copyright.

The lawsuit claims that there are 363 illegal links on one website alone and that the majority of the unlawful links were on “Facebook fan pages and on Google’s Blogger network.”

According to The Independent, the court papers also state that, “Defendants rely on either Google’s Blogger platform or Facebook, or both, to accomplish their unlawful activity.” It further states that,”Rather than publishing lawful content to their blogs, they typically publish posts that list all the songs performed at a certain Prince live show and then provide a link to a file sharing service where unauthorized copies of the performance can be downloaded.”

Lesson learned? Don’t mess with Prince.

Will also snapped some fun flicks with his son Jaden before greeting fans and speaking with reporters including HipHollywood.

He told HipHollywood that he was super excited to reunite with his Suicide Squad director David Ayer for the film, and would “work with him whenever he wants to.

“I love his madness how he creates,” gushes Smith. “How he thinks about scenes, the way he works with actors, it’s some of the best psychological work of any director I’ve ever worked with.”

In the film Smith plays an LAPD cop in a mythical world of orcs, elves and fairies … and Ayer told us, he couldn’t think of anyone better for the role.

“We had such a good time on Suicide Squad together and this role is kind of perfect for him, it’s an edgy movie, buts it’s funny. He’s got the best sense of humor of anybody I know.”

BRIGHT debuts on Netflix December 22. Peep the newest trailer below.
