Eminem And Dr. Dre Accused Of Trying To Murder A Man In Crazy Lawsuit
Eminem and Dr. Dre are among a group of musicians facing a bizarre lawsuit from a rapper accusing them of stealing his music and trying to kill him.
Jason David Yonai, who is also known as KazeLoon or K.D. Lean, is suing the stars, along with singer Chris Brown, rapper The Game, and music executive Jimmy Iovine for allegedly committing “numerous counts of fraudulent (and) criminal acts”.
“The defendants in this matter committed numerous counts of fraud against me and the plaintiffs and then tried to hire hitmen to kill me and my group or the plaintiffs,” reads the lawsuit, filed in U.S. Federal Court in Los Angeles in November. “The defendants in this matter committed intentional acts such as threats, threats to commit a crime against our person, intentional infliction of emotional distress, invasion of privacy, defamation (slander and libel), solicitation of murder with great bodily harm and malice premeditation against us the plaintiffs, with a conspiracy theory and group of many people who are the defendants in this matter.”
Bosses from Dre and Iovine’s Beats Electronics and Eminem’s Shady Records companies are also included in the lawsuit.
According to reports, Yonai, who is suing on behalf of himself and other, unidentified plaintiffs, is representing himself in the case and is seeking more than $75,000 in damages.
The defendants have yet to respond to the case.
