Soulja Boy is facing a lawsuit after he used footage of his Las Vegas driver in a music video.
It looks like Soulja Boy is the latest victim in a new lawsuit. According to The Blast, the SODMG rapper is being sued by a Las Vegas chauffeur who was filmed & put into the rapper's music video without his consent.
According to court documents, which The Blast were able to obtain, Kamilah Daily claimed that Soulja Boy hired the transportation company back in February of 2017. Daily was to be the chauffeur for Soulja, his director, and manager around Las Vegas, which he did. However during the ride, Soulja Boy’s crew decided to whip out the video camera and start filming. While it didn't look to be a big deal at the time, Daily later found out that Soulja Boy used the footage without his consent in his music video for the song “Bling” (see below around the :50 second mark).
Daily is now suing Soulja Boy for unspecified damages for the headache it caused him at work, and for the substantial distress and mental anguish it caused. He also sought an injunction against Soulja from continuing to distribute the footage.
Daily told the media publication, “I am a private person, so I have kept quiet about this whole legal matter with Soulja Boy. This video has circulated throughout social media outlets and was requested to be taken down. The video originally was taken down off one of his YouTube accounts but keeps being reposted over and over again. I have driven A-list celebrities and their families and I never had to go through anything like this with them or had problems.”
