AceShowbiz - The production crew of Janet Jackson's "No Sleeep" music video will not be getting any sleep for real. Zanmi Films, the company behind the music video, is reportedly sued for wrecking a guy's home while shooting for the music video back in 2015.
According to TMZ, a guy named David Tate claimed that the company used his house in July 2015 to film the music video, which was directed by Janet's longtime collaborator, Dave Meyers. He further stated that the company already agreed to cover any damages that they might cause during the filming.
After the shooting, David noticed that the production crew had damaged both his floors and walls. However, he hasn't been compensated for the damages that the crew made. He added that he had to pay for the repairs himself and had to move out of his house for two weeks. David is seeking more than one million dollars in damages.
Zanmi Films has not responded to the lawsuit.
In other news, Janet is currently busy hitting the road for her "State of the World" tour, which kicked off in Lafayette on September 7. After wrapping up her concert in Chicago, the 51-year-old singer took her brother Randy Jackson (II) to visit their childhood home in Gary, Indiana. She was seen talking to local high school students there.
Janet, who lived in Gary until she was 8 years old, said that she was crying when she saw the small house and that her family was blessed to be able to live there for a while. "Me and my family are so blessed. I'm so thankful," she said.
Also during her tour, Janet was able to reunite with her former backup dancers onstage, including Jenna Dewan. The "Rhythm Nation" songstress revealed that she was thrilled to be able to meet her former backup dancers. "My solo career took off when I was 19 years old. I decided to create a family of my own. I became very close to those who danced with me, but even closer to those who danced on tour with me," she said.
