A former sergeant in the Army National Guard claims Young Dolph ruined her career and got her booted from the military after he posted a video of her twerking in her uniform!
A former sergeant from Atlanta is suing Young Dolph for getting her booted from the Army National Guard, which caused her to have a nervous breakdown. Akeisha Norris said she was a friend of Young Dolph’s prior to the fiasco with her video, which was shot when she was on active duty in Kuwait.
In September of 2018, Norris posted a video of her twerking to his song on her account for fun. But things went left when Young Dolph copied the video and placed it on his website to promote his album Role Model.
The booty-shaking video eventually made its way to Norris’ superiors in the Army National Guard, who disciplined Norris and ultimately relieved of her duty as a sergeant.
“[Norris] was called before her superior officers and disciplined, leading to a mental breakdown. As a result, she was sent back to the United States and dismissed from the military,” her lawyer Keith Altman explained.
According to Norris Young Dolph gave her PTSD after he posted her image and likeness without her consent, just to benefit himself financially. Akeisha Norris is suing Young Dolph for invasion of privacy, intentional infliction of emotional distress.
Norris is suing Young Dolph for compensatory damages for financial loss, damage to reputation, humiliation, mental anguish, and emotional distress. She is also seeking punitive damages against the individual defendants.
Ironically, Young Dolph just released his new self-directed video “Land,” which touches on America’s injustices and shortcomings.
