"Nik Richie," of Dirty Shame, Sued...Again
The latest to file a suit against the leader of the "Dirty Army" is Memphis, Tennessee, TV reporter Lauren Lee, who claims a nude photo of her posted on Richie's website Dirty.com isn't her. Rather, she claims in a federal lawsuit, real pictures of her were juxtaposed with nude images of an unknown woman on the site.
The 29-year-old Chicago native found out about the photos -- and the nasty comments attached to them from "Richie's" dirty following -- when "Richie" posted them on the website in April under the entry "Chicago Girls Need to be Exposed."
According to the lawsuit, first obtained by Memphis' The Commercial Appeal, the photos got more than 22,000 hits before they were temporarily removed.
This is just the latest in a collection of lawsuits filed against "Richie" and his company, Dirty World LLC.
In August, a cheerleader for the Cincinnati Bengals was awarded $11 million after "Richie" posted her picture on the website with a story about how she sleeps with players and has a sexually transmitted disease.
Last year, "Richie" was ordered to pay $1.5 million to a Texas woman featured on his website whom he claimed had herpes. "Richie's" sleazy response to losing the suit: a pledge to make the woman the "face of herpes in America."
Lee's lawsuit demands that the posts be permanently removed from the site, and "Richie" cough up $50 million.
