Snoop Dogg Smacked with a $25 Million Law-suit

Published: 2005-02-02
In December 2004, rapper Snoop Dogg filed a lawsuit against Emmy Award-winning make-up artist Kylie Bell, alleging that Bell was attempting to extort $5 million. Bell, who won an Emmy Award in 2002 for her work on HBO's "Six Feet Under", was not going down without a fight; she ended up filing a $25 million lawsuit against Snoop, Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Walt Disney Company, ABC, and several others involved.

Why you ask? In a Los Angeles law-suit Bell alleges that she was hired by the rapper to administer and remove his make-up from January 28 through the 31, 2003, while he served as a co-host on Jimmy Kimmel Live. On the final night, she was given some champagne by a member of his entourage and could barely move after taking a few sips. She then was allegedly raped by Snoop Dogg and two members of his entourage.

What's even more disturbing is that Bell believes the Jimmy Kimmel Live show (ABC and Walt Disney are the parent companies) is partially responsible because they allegedly provided the rapper with large quantities of champagne and marijuana for his dressing room! She also says that she observed the rapper snorting cocaine on January 31 in his dressing room. The morning after the incident, Bell allegedly wanted to go to the police but was advised against it by family members because of the rapper's gang affiliations.

The two parties had reached an financial agreement on January 6, but it fell through on January 18 when the rapper's insurance company refused to pay a portion of the settlement.
