DJ Star’s Mom Files $11 Million Lawsuit Against Emmis Radio

Hannah Hightower,

mother of controversial radio personality DJ Star, has filed an $11 million lawsuit

against Emmis Radio for disparaging comments Hot 97 disc jockey Miss Jones made

about her. The federal lawsuit contends that Miss Jones defamed Hightower

during an on-air rant in which Jones described her as a "a prostitute."

The complaint, filed on Wednesday (August 2) in a Manhattan court, also quotes

the disc jockey 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 – – – – r." The lawsuit is the latest round in a flurry

of legal maneuvering that has resulted from Star being fired from New York radio

station Power 105.1 after making racial and sexual remarks about DJ Envy’s wife

Gia Casey and their 4-year-old daughter.Star

(real name Troi Torain) was later arrested and charged with harassment and endangering

the welfare of a child. Last

month, Star struck a deal with the city’s District Attorney’s office to have the

charges dropped after agreeing to stay away from Envy’s daughter, as well

as, perform three days community service. In related news, Star is also

facing a multi-million dollar lawsuit that was filed by former co-host Prozac

Girl, who alleges that the shock jock caused her intentional emotional distress

and fired her in violation of the Americans with Disability Act.
