Akeisha Norris, a former army sergeant, is suing rapper Young Dolph after a video he shared of her twerking to one of his songs led to her being fired.
The video in question was originally posted in September 2018 and it shows Akeisha shaking it like a salt-shaker to one of Dolph’s songs. It’s garnered over 45K views on YouTube.
Dolph took the video and posted it on his website as promotion for his forthcoming project, Role Model.
Akeisha was called to the office of superior officers and disciplined which led to her having a mental breakdown, according to her lawyer Keith Altman.
As a result, Norris was sent back to the United States and dismissed from the military.
Akeisha claims after Dolph, who she was once friendly with, reposted the video without her consent it caused her to develop PTSD.
She is suing Dolph for invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Akeisha Norris is also seeking punitive damages and compensatory damages for financial loss.
She says the rapper caused her mental anguish, humiliated her, and damaged her reputation.
