    Kid Rock's Ex Sues For Defamation

    (7/28/00, 10 a.m. ET) - Kid Rock has been slapped with a lawsuit from former girlfriend Kelly Russell in which she claims the rock-rapper's lyrics damaged her reputation.

    Russell, Rock's ex-girlfriend and mother of his child, claims that his song "Black Chic, White Guy"--from his multiplatinum release Devil Without A Cause--contains "several graphic, inflammatory, untrue, hurtful remarks," AP reports.

    Here are a few lyrical excerpts from the track that Russell claims defamed her character: "If she stepped out of line she got slapped/She had no man no money and no clue/She said I want your child or I'm leavin' you/That girl met another guy and was f--kin' him, too/Slut could barely pay her rent/And then the same old sh-t, I'm pregnant/And if that ain't some sh-t 'cuz/The girl didn't even know who the father was/Three different kids from three different men."

    Calls to the Rock camp were not returned at press time, but Rock has publicly stated that the song speaks the truth without ever naming her. Russell is seeking unspecified damages from Kid Rock as well as Atlantic Records and Rolling Stone magazine.
