Talib Kweli Sues Website for Defamation Over Story Accusing Him of Raping 14-Year-Old Girl

Rapper Talib Kweli has filed a suit against a website for trying to ruin his reputation with claims of rape.

In a lawsuit obtained by The @blast, Kweli says Turtleboy Sports tweeted in reference to another story that claimed to have a direct account of the woman’s rape claims against the rapper.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Talib Kweli once molested a 10-year-old boy. Read it on the Internet on a site called Buffalo Bruises. Must be true,” the publication reportedly tweeted. “Why did you rape that 14-year-old girl? How much did you pay her to keep quiet,” another tweet read, according to the suit.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, The Blast clarifies that the site is actually called Buffalo Bruisers, which was created by Turtleboy Sports to post the rape story, as it is the only story in its history.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As a result, Kweli is asking for an unspecified amount of damages for defamation, as he said the claims hurt his tour and record sales.
