Too Short’s Rape Accuser Sues Him For Defamation

Instagram media by tooshort - My man Nas just opened up a @sweetchicklife location in LA.

Back in In January, Too Short was sued by Teana Louis for sexual battery, sexual harassment, gender violence, gender discrimination, as well as false imprisonment.

The rapper immediately denied the allegations and said the whole thing was “blatant outright extortion.” But, according to TMZ, his legal situation has only become worse in the following weeks. Louis reportedly believes that his response was an attempt to “further her victimization” and discredit her. In response to his comments, she has filed additional documents in the original assault case, claiming that he defamed her with his remarks.
