Dustin Lance Black to Sue Starzlife over Nude Photo Scandal
Dustin Lance Black's lawyers, Lavely & Singer, are going to sue Starzlife.com over the nude photo scandal that involved Dustin and his then partner Jeff Delancy in a compromising sexual position, which Starzlife distributed, and they claimed they had a video as well.
Black denies even knowing the photos were being taken, but he looks directly at the camera a few times, so it's unclear how aware he may have been.
So what is Team Black even after? A few things. Namely, Starzlife.com and its staff — as well as Michael Lawrence, who the lawsuit claims stole the photos from Delancy's computer while they were dating — cannot ever distribute the material again. Any profits they made must be turned over to Black. And he'd like $3 million, please. The court filing says Black wants a jury trial, though we doubt this is headed in that direction. A settlement is most likely, for a mostly paltry sum, and the promise to never mention Black's name again, if only because Starzlife's proprietors supposedly met (unknowingly) with Black's own private investigators to discuss a sale. That'd be some pretty damning evidence to hear in open court.
