Sharon Stone Sues Rapper Chanel West Coast over "Sharon Stoned" Song and Video
Published Nov 06, 2019Sharon Stone is suing rapper Chanel West Coast over using the actor's name in her song "Sharon Stoned."
The track, which was released in 2018, hears the rapper born Chelsea Dudley repeating Stone's name over and over.
"During the Song, Defendant Dudley gratuitously repeats the name 'Sharon Stone' thirty-three times and the name 'Sharon' ninety-nine times," Stone's complaint reads.
In addition to objecting to the song, Stone also argues that the video sees Dudley capitalizing on her "extraordinary level of popularity and fame."
Dudley has previously admitted that the video is intended to recreate some of the actor's most iconic film scenes — most obviously, Casino and Basic Instinct.
Stone and her legal team argue that Dudley has violated laws of unfair competition and right of publicity.
They are seeking an injunction that would ban Dudley from using Stone's name or image, as well as punitive damages and disgorgement of any profits earned by Dudley due to the song and video.
