Brandy Lawsuit Not Legal?
TMZ reports: The $50 million lawsuit filed by the parents of the woman killed in the Brandy car crash may get thrown out of court.

TMZ has done some digging and here's the lowdown. Awatef Aboudihaj was killed December 30 after Brandy's vehicle rear-ended her on a Los Angeles freeway. Aboudihaj was married with two children. Under California law, only the husband, not the parents, can sue for wrongful death.

We're told the parents' lawsuit was filed without consulting the husband beforehand. Even more interesting, Aboudihaj has been living in the United States for 11 years. Her parents have been living in Morocco full-time, so contact between parents and daughter was minimal.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

"I don't like decaffeinated teabags. The offer to this show came in the season to be jolly (xmas). I don't know who Bodog is. I still don't, but I may in the future. I admire the wit, audacity and touch of genius to entrust me with the future of rock and roll. I do not do judgment. I don't take judgment. But, by the end of this show you'll know what this judge meant. I don't like decaffeinated teabags. P.S. - I always loved live music and these bands genuinely enjoy what they do, and they write their own songs. Thank you. Fresh. Whoever wins Bodog's cash cow contract is well worth it cause every single band in here is worth it. Words not given lightly. Up yours, John Rotten"[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story
