Accused for recording a woman's personal phone call conversation, Jermaine Dupri is named in Georgia's lawsuit and asked to pay a huge legal fine.
Jermaine Dupri has been accused by a woman named Aika Kendrick for illegally recording her private phone call conversation which was then used as a backdrop for Daz Dillinger's song, titled "The One". Being humiliated with the call's publication, she had reportedly called for a complaint to Jermaine but it was subsequently ignored.
Due to this, Aika sues the rap mogul on the grounds of "negligence, intentional infliction of emotional distress and copyright infringement" and asks the rapper to pay her $250,000 as a compensation for the claimed damages. Furthermore, also named in the suit are the "The One" singer and Virgin Records, who, regardless her objection, continue to make copies of the album. Neither Daz nor Jermaine has commented on the incident.
Elsewhere, Jermaine has revealed his support towards Britney Spears by saying that Britney will make a good music with any producer that she picks up. "She doesn't need a producer, she is good," the Def Jam producer explains. "She and Danger and Timbaland and whoever did her last record, they sound perfect together."
