Eminem Sued By Homeless Man Over Commercial

02 February 2012

Rapper Eminem is facing a lawsuit from a homeless man who alleges the star stole the idea for his Chrysler commercial.

The advert debuted during last year's (2011) Super Bowl and now Stephen Lee Pieck has filed a lawsuit alleging that the idea behind the advert was his.

In papers obtained by AllHipHop.com, Pieck states that he was in a Legal Seafood restaurant with Christina Aguilera and her then-husband Jordan Bratman when the singer reportedly rang the hip hop star.

Wait... since when have Christina and Eminem been close pals?

Pieck then alleges that Aguilera then passed him the phone and it was then that he gave Eminem the idea for the commercial, which stars Eminem and features his song Lose Yourself.

The lawsuit, which was filed on 12 January (2012), states, "I want the court to reward me a judgment in the amount of $9 million. I designed every aspect of the commercial and the commercial was stolen from me. In addition, I did not receive compensation in monetary terms for the work I did."

Somehow we don't think Eminem has anything to worry about!
