Well Hulkamaniacs the lawsuit over Hulk Hogan's "alleged" sex tape is now settled. The tape in question is with Hulk Hogan and the wife of a radio DJ in Florida (supposedly Hogan and DJ were/are friends). The whole thing stems from what Hogan was saying is/was "consensual" sexual relations with his best friends wife. Hey, who knew that Hulk Hogan was a swinger....
Hogan's radio DJ friend apologized yesterday to the Hulkamaniac and said he thinks Hogan wasn't aware he was being video-tapped. Uhh...ya, right. Hogan's publicist is saying the terms of the settlement are confidential so we'll never know what they actually are...until Hogan's DJ friend says something on the air about it because that is how radio DJs - like him, not all of us - act.
As a disclaimer, you will not be allowed to have sex with my wife. Let's start with the fact that I don't have a wife ...yet. So it would make it more difficult to try and have sex with a wife I don't have, but I'm not into the swinger thing. Maybe if I were single....but....I 've now said too much. Carry on.

According to an editorial from AllHipHop,Trey Songz is facing some political issues and possibly having to pay up on a $18 million lawsuit.
A Washington, D.C. production company has filed an $18 million lawsuit over the rights to the music on the hit song "Bottoms Up" by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. Derrick Price, Doc Mob Records and IHip Hop Music filed the lawsuit against Trey Songz, Atlantic Records, Kodak, manager Gee Robertson, producer Kane Beatz and others. According to the lawsuit, which was filed February 2nd in the Southern District of New York, Doc Mob hired producer Milton James aka "Tony Scales" to produce the original, copyrighted track for "Bottoms Up" for his company, Doc Mob Records. Price and Doc Mob further claim the track was originally produced by James in Price's home studio. At some point, James teamed with producer Kane Beatz who added production to the song, which was eventually used by Trey Songz and Nicki Minaj. The lawsuit claims that "Bottoms Up" was contained on Trey Songz' hit album Passion, Pain and Pleasure but only listed Kane Beatz as producer of the song. Doc Mob's Derrick Price alleges that he sent multiple cease-and-desist letters to Atlantic Records and Trey Songz, but they were allegedly ignored by the defendants in the case. Kodak has been dragged into the $18 million dollar lawsuit, for using the song in an advertising campaign featuring Trey Songz.

Get over it Detroit!!! Much worse things have happened especially in the D!!!
A Detroit councilman continues to pursue a lawsuit against Dr. Dre, stemming from a controversial concert in 2000 in Detroit, where a confrontation with police was captured on film and used in a hit DVD.
The Supreme Court of Michigan will hear oral arguments from both lawyers today, in regards to the lawsuit, which was originally filed in 2000, shortly after the release of the Up In Smoke DVD.
Councilman Gary Brown was a police official working the backstage area of the "Up in Smoke Tour" when a meeting was taped backstage at the Joe Louis Arena between officials and producers of the show.
The tour ran into difficulties in Detroit and Auburn Hills, over the showing of a sexually explicit video that also included a shootout.
Brown's conversation was included as a bonus track on the Up In Smoke DVD titled "Detroit Controversy" which caused him and officers Paula Bridges and Greg Bowers to file a $ 3 billion dollar lawsuit against Dr. Dre, which has been dismissed three times by lower courts.
Dr. Dre also sued the cities of Detroit and Auburn in 2007 and was awarded $25,000 and apologies from both cities.
In related news, Dr. Dre has denied reports that his highly anticipated album Detox was due in stores on April 20th.
