Ex-Employee Sues Pscyho Clowns

A woman who was fired from her job as a publicist and attorney for the Insane Clown Posse and its label, Psychopathic Records, is suing both parties for multiple counts of sexual harassment, hostile work environment and more.

The lawsuit, filed by Andrea Pellegrini in Oakland County Circuit Court in Michigan Sept. 16, claims Pellegrini had to deal with a hostile work environment during her employment from 2009-12.

“Plaintiff, as in-house publicist and attorney for the outlandish and controversial music group, The Insane Clown Posse, (known as “ICP”) was subjected to constant and pervasive harassment during her tenure, including having a large dildo given to her while at work, and being presented with “vagina tighteners.”

Plaintiff was mocked, belittled, and the subject of sexual advances from top-level persons at ICP’s label, Psychopathic Records,” court papers say.

Pellegrini also alleges she was asked to do “illegal and/or unethical things at her job,” including obtain automatic weapons for a photo shoot and “deceive” investigators with the Department of Labor who were reportedly auditing the label.

Named in the suit are ICP’s Joseph “Shaggy 2 Dope” Utsler, Joseph “Violent J” Bruce, Psychopathic Records and its chief, William Dail, and Dan “Dirty Dan” Diamond.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for medical expenses, lost wages and/or loss of earning capacity, emotional distress, pain and suffering, and other charges.

Meanwhile, the Detroit-based rap group is still pursuing its 2012 lawsuit against the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The lawsuit stems from the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment for including an entry about the Juggalos, describing those fans as “a loosely-organized hybrid gang rapidly expanding into many U.S. communities.”

ICP alleges the FBI isn’t cooperating with its requests for proof that backs up the bureau’s assessment about the Juggalos.
