2 Chainz Is Being Sued for $5 Million Over 'THOT' Video

A woman is alleging that the rapper ruined her life.

Published July 8, 2015

The freedom of speech is a real thing, but it may cost 2 Chainz a pretty penny. 

About a year ago, while backstage at one of his shows, the Atlanta rapper recorded a conversation he was having with his crew as well as interactions with fans. Now one female fan named Chistine Chisholm is suing the MC for calling her a "THOT" in the video.

In case you don't know and need a really quick Urban Dictionary-like definition, the word THOT was made popular by Chief Keef and is an acronym for "that h** over there." Not nice.

According to TMZ, since the video posted last year, it's received thousands of views, and according to the defendant, it's caused her to lose her job at a barber shop and has caused public harassment and damaged her reputation and she wants $5 million for it.

No word from 2 Chainz or his camp yet.
