T-Pain is taking the vocal device that made him a star to court. The singer filed a lawsuit this week against Antares Technologies — the company behind auto-tune — alleging the company is using his name and image without his permission. T-Pain left Antares back in June to start a product called “The T-Pain Effect” with the company Izotope. Despite their separation, the hip-hop star says Antares continues to use him to try to sell their products. T-Pain’s lawsuit alleges that Antares’ actions are causing confusion in the marketplace, and damaging the sale of his upcoming product.
T-Pain is seeking at least one-million dollars in damages, and wants an injunction prohibiting Antares from using his name and image to sell their products. If Pain gets the money he can buy you lots of drink… LOL how is that for a segway…

The Dream and Lilâ€™ Wayneâ€™s baby mama will dish the dirt on family,Â career, and the fathersâ€™ of her children. CheckÂ out the excerpt:
Â Jamie: Are you going to do a reality show? Nivea: Honestly, Iâ€™ve been approached but I wasnâ€™t interested because, like Iâ€™ve been saying, Iâ€™m a very private person. And on some real, it ainâ€™t even about the kids and all that; itâ€™s about that I donâ€™t think people are ready for my kind of real. (laughs) Iâ€™m not trying to â€œbeâ€ a certain way; Iâ€™m just passionate about whatever Iâ€™m talking about and what Iâ€™m doing, and people tend to use that against you. And Iâ€™m not ready for that type of backlash â€˜cause Iâ€™d wanna fight everybody. Like, â€œWhatâ€™d you say?!â€ READ MORE
