Well, this is fantastic. A California prisoner has just filed a $2.4 billion lawsuit against Beyonce, Jay Z, Kanye West, Rihanna, and Chris Brown, claiming the music icons colluded with law enforcement to steal lyrics he’s been writing from behind bars.
Richard Dupree — who’s currently locked up in California State Prison, Corcoran — filed the suit in district court last week.
Dupree claims Jay Z and Beyonce have been working with law enforcement for the last 3-4 years (including CIA, FBI, and Homeland Security) to spy on him via satellites in order to steal his lyrics. Really. He alleges Chris Brown, Rihanna, and Kanye West conspired with them to commit the crimes.
According to his lawsuit, Dupree believes Jay and the rest extracted roughly 3,000 songs from him via satellites and in the process “robbed [him] for hundreds of millions, even billions, in the satellite organization.” Whatever that means.
Dupree wants justice in the form of $2.4 billion dollars.
Oh yes. He also demands immediate freedom from prison.
