Kid Rock has fired back at the lawyers who claimed he was in possession of a glass sex toy that they hope to use as evidence in a sexual harassment case Insane Clown Posse‘s former publicist has filed against that group.
A subpoena said that “Dirty Dan” Diamond, a former employee of ICP’s Psychopathic Records label, had given the dildo to the singer after trying to hand it to publicist Andrea Pellegrini. Now, in two separate letters addressed to lawyers involved in the case, Kid Rock has accused Diamond of lying and the attorneys of using the case as an opportunity to get publicity. Moreover, the singer said he has not been served with a subpoena.
“I’ve never heard of, seen, or met any people involved in this case,” Kid Rock wrote in a letter on his website addressed to attorneys Jim Rasor and Jon Marko, who represent Pellegrini. “But I’m pretty sure you already know that. What I do know is that you’ve been dragging my name around in the media to gain attention for your sad ass excuse for a law firm. I don’t care what you do when you finally catch up to the ambulances you chase, but I do care when you bring my name into it for no reason at all.”
He went on in the letter to ask the lawyers, “Did you study how to look like douchebags in college?” He also asked them how they would feel about reading a press release saying they were caught “molesting animals at a petting zoo while high on bath salts,” as an example of how absurd the glass dildo case was. “Say you were people who aren’t a blight on our planet – wouldn’t you be pissed off that your name, for days on end, was being mentioned in the press when everyone involved knew you weren’t involved in any way?” he wrote. “Welcome to my side of this story.”
Similarly, the musician wrote a letter to lawyer Brian E. Koncius, who is representing Dirty Dan in the case. “I’ve never met your client, and if I had met your client I’d certainly remember if he tried to give me a glass fucking dildo,” Kid Rock wrote. “Even if it was the ‘Rasor Law Firm’ that sent a press release to the press, you have done nothing to clear up this blatant lie which makes you to blame too. It is obvious that all you assholes are using my name and notoriety to garner publicity for yourselves, which makes you the worst kind of scum. You’re the types of lawyers that make America a worse place for everyone.”
The singer explained that one reason he continues to reside in Detroit, as opposed to Los Angeles, was so he could avoid the press. He also offered up an outlandish scenario for Koncius, as he did for the Rasor Law Firm: “One day you come downstairs to the angry glare of your wife who asks if you really were arrested over the weekend for driving high on crystal meth with a bound and gagged hooker in your trunk. Did you? Because it’s all over the Internet, some lawyer you’ve never met put it out in a press release! Must be true right?” Kid Rock closed this letter by asking Koncius to prove that he represents people “interested in doing the right thing,” as his website purports.
Pellegrini filed her suit against ICP in September 2013, claiming “wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation and infliction of emotional distress” against the members of ICP, their label and manager, William Dale. ICP has denied the allegations.
