Viacom Responds To ‘Black Ink Crew’ Date Rape Drug Lawsuit

February 11, 2014  |  

Last month we told you about an impending lawsuit against Viacom and Big Fish Entertainment filed by former “Black Ink Crew” star Alex Estevez and another unnamed woman. Both women claim that they were given alcoholic beverages containing date rape drugs during show tapings by a man who was affiliated with the VH1 production crew. One news of the lawsuit broke, Estevez took to Instagram to discuss the alleged incident.

“I don’t even know where to begin,” the former “Black Ink Crew” star wrote. “Welcome to the living hell I been living in for the past year. The girls that were roofied will never ever be the same! I wasn’t the only one and I will continue to fight for justice! It’s sad how cast members act oblivious all for what 2 to 4 G’s that’s how much my life & all the good I did is worth to you? There’s a special place in hell for you all who don’t speak up. Just know if it happen on set to me it can happen to you too! Please help me bring Awareness to this situation & let these abusers know we are not staying quite! Thank you.”

Estevez’s co-star Ceaser quickly responded to the allegations, calling BS on her entire story.

“Ain’t no one give her s**t,” he said. “She was drunk off Henny. You can see from her behavior no one gave her any drugs, or tried to make her anything she’s not.”

“You don’t have to give a slut drugs to do what she naturally does,” he added.

Viacom and Big Fish Entertainment seem to be singing a similar tune. The network and production company recently responded to Estevez’s lawsuit with a little court paperwork of their own and they’re basically demanding that she show them the “receipts” that prove this alleged incident occurred. In court documents recovered by Radar Online, legal representatives for the media companies accuse her of making “bald legal conclusions” and “vague allegations of wrongdoing.” They also point out how her lawsuit never specified how the “John Doe” she claims slipped her the alleged dirty drink is actually affiliated with them and that she never provided any medical evidence to prove that she was battered or drugged.

As for her claims that producers still owe her money from the show, apparently there was a provision in her contract that required her to inform the company of any discrepancies before suing, which she reportedly failed to do. Viacom and Big Fish Entertainment are petitioning for the entire case to be thrown out.
