NWA actor Eddie Bravo is suing for defamation and breach of contract after he claims that the singer, Eddie Guerrero, is behind a website that encourages people to upload photos of themselves with the ringleader of the 1990s NWA World Heavyweight Championship.
In the lawsuit, Bravo says he was a “very young kid” at the time of filming the scene in which Guerrero appeared with his friend Michael “Karate Kid” Breslin, the lawsuit says.
Breslin died of cancer in 2007, but the lawsuit doesn’t state how.
It says that the NAWW website was created in August of 2000 and has since “accidentally” been viewed more than 100 million times.
“It’s been the NABBA for a long time,” the lawsuit states.
“The only thing that has changed in the world of NWA is that the word NWA has become synonymous with ‘black.'”
It says Bravo, who is in his 40s, was asked to participate in the site in late July 2016 when he was 18 and he “was asked to share a photo with Mr. Guerrero.”
Bravo says he did not tell Guerrero to delete the photos and was asked by Guerrero’s representatives to upload them.
The lawsuit says Guerrero’s company, NABB, posted the photos on the website in October 2016 and that Bravo “was not informed by Guerrero that he was infringing his intellectual property.”
The lawsuit states Bravo has been seeking damages from NABBE for more than two years and is seeking “an injunction against Guerrero and Guerrero’s agents, managers, and employees.”
A lawyer for Guerrero did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit.
