C. Love is headed to court again, being sued for comments she made on Twitter. As this is the first-ever high-profile defamation lawsuit over a celebrity's Tweets, it could set a precedent for how the Twitter platform is viewed.
It all started back in March 2009, when Love—using a now defunct Twitter account (she's since started a new one)—went on one of her infamous Twitter rants in which she made nasty comments, insults, and accusations about fashion designer Dawn Simorangkir—with whom Love had been in a dispute over Simorangkir's demand for payment for thousands of dollars' worth of clothing—saying that she was a violent prostitute drug-dealing thief who lost custody of her daughter. (Yeah, pot/kettle on some of that.) Love went on to write, "She has received a VAST amount of money from me over 40,000 dollars and I do not make people famous and get raped TOO!" Love also posted similar sentiments on additional social media outlets, like MySpace and Etsy, over the next several days.
