Captain “Shiteous” has filed a countersuit against one of the photo agencies that’s sueing him for stealing so many photos over the years. I don’t think his ass had a receipt. His suit claims that photo agency X-17 hires “illegal aliens” to intimidate the other photogs and that they also employ convicted felons. Remind me to never move to L.A. People are ripping each other off, and roughing each other up in the streets!
Filed yesterday, Lavandeira [Perez]‘s Los Angeles Superior Court complaint alleges that the X17 agency’s owners engage in “illegal and unethical business practices” and that they exploit the company’s photographers, many of whom are “from Brazil or other countries” and are “believed to be illegal aliens.” He also charges that the agency may “employ photographers with criminal backgrounds and/or gang affiliations.” While Lavandeira does not identify any paparazzi by name, X17 photographer Ramon “Twist” Kirk is a convicted sex offender. As first revealed by reporter Eric Longabardi, Kirk spent 16 months in a California prison for the felony sex crime, which involved a teenage girl.
Oh oh. This could be a monkeywrench in the machinery of gossip blogger downfall. Keep reading for how Perez is using his site to gather evidence against X-17.
He’s on his site trying to also prove that X-17 has been stiffing past and present photographers or something:
Notice To All Current And Former Photographers Of X17
Does X17 owe you money?
If you feel that you have not been adequately compensated by X17 for your time (including overtime) or your photographs, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org immediately.
We look forward to hearing from you.
It’s on now! Truthfully, he was the forerunner of this whole gossip blogging business, and I’ll give that to him. He was definitely the first of many. But you can’t act all cocky about ripping people off or they will cut you. Or your server will dump you. Still – I want his paycheck for drawing pee streams coming out of people. And I certainly don’t want to be an Oscar-winning actress and the photog’s cool with trying to rape me. I certainly didn’t go to the Actor’s Studio and withstand James Lipton’s smarmy ass for it to come to that.
