Kid Rock sued for 15M by 3 fans!
Kid Rock drinks light beer & might have a light wallet soon as well.
Looks liks the American Badass is getting sued for 15 Million bad ass bucks.
Kid Rock‘s got a bad reputation and he knows it — which is why he wants to put the kibosh on any mention of his previous bad behavior during his current court case.
Rock filed documents in L.A. County Superior Court on Friday in connection to a lawsuit filed against him by three guys who claim Rock and six members of the Boo-Yaa Tribe beat the hell out of them at the Roosevelt Hotel back in 2006.
In the documents, Rock — real name Robert Ritchie — asks that his "reputation as a ‘tough guy’ or ‘thug’ by means of his professional persona as ‘Kid Rock’" not be used against him during the case.
Rock also wants no mention of his "prior criminal arrest or misdemeanor convictions" during the case as well … calling them irrelevant and prejudicial.
The alleged incident took place back in 2006 outside the Hollywood hotspot Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel. According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Michael Medlin, Carlos Bonilla and Jose Perez were waiting outside with a small camera and autograph books. They claim they were beaten up and even had their cameras and bags stolen, too!
In addition to Rock and the members of the Boo-Yaa Tribe, the suit also names the Roosevelt Hotel and Teddy’s as defendants, saying the security was so negligent, it created a "dangerous and hazardous condition."
A call to Rock’s rep was not immediately returned. Same with emails to the Roosevelt.
