Karlie Redd of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta is apparently in a bit of legal hot water with a former love interest.
It was only about a month ago that an Atlanta promotor filed a restraining order against the reality show star (click HERE if you missed that).
Well, now…. Karlie former flame wants to cash in on his experience.
According to TMZ, Christopher Powe (aka ‘Pharaoh’) has filed a defamation lawsuit against Karlie claiming that her bad mouthing him has affected his reputation.
…dragged his name through the mud by making the false claims — both to TMZ and on social media — alleging he attacked her, tried raping her and taking her picture while she was asleep.
Powe says he and Karlie were seeing each other this summer until he pulled the plug, and she threatened to sic her goons on him. He says she was just a woman scorned who then made up lies.
Chris says Karlie went on an unrelenting campaign bad-mouthing him … costing him tons of dough for a crisis PR guy.
Pharaoh is reportedly suing for over a million dollars in damages and also wants Karlie to issue a retraction and an apology.
For the record, this all sounds like an elaborate ploy to give Karlie some much needed exposure and/or a storyline for next season. ?But only time will tell…
