Dj Star's Mother Files Lawsuit
The mother of disgraced Dj STAR has filed an $11 million (GBP6.1 million) lawsuit against New York City radio station Hot 97, claiming she was defamed by a rival of her son. DJ Star - real name TROI TORAIN - was sacked by Big Apple radio station Power 105.1 in May (06) after making on-air racial and sexual comments about rival DJ ENVY's wife and four-year-old daughter. And HANNAH HIGHTOWER, a retired schoolteacher, alleges she was called a prostitute by Hot 97 personality Miss Jones when she was attacking Torain. The lawsuit against Emmis Radio, quotes Jones as saying, "Your white mom was nothing but a prostitute that your dad turned out," and "got knocked up by the blackest, blackest, blackest n**ger," the New York Post reports. Torain yesterday (02AUG06) launched a defamation lawsuit against New York City Councilman JOHN LIU, who he claims has continually made false statements about him.
