Porn Star Katsumi Wins Bow Wow Lawsuit, Rapper Ordered To Pay $79,000

The onetime Digital Playground contract girl now known as Celine Tran, won a suit against Bow Wow for stealing video footage in his "Drank In My Cup" video.

French adult film star Celine Tran (who is largely known under past monikers "Katsumi" and "Katsuni") sued Columbus, Ohio rapper, actor and television host Bow Wow in mid-2012, and has won. TMZ.com reports that the porn star successfully convinced judges that Bow Wow used unauthorized footage from her dancing in his video.

As Celine Tran, Katsumi appeared in a video for French band Electronic Conspiracy. The footage was illegally re-purposed in Bow's "Drank In My Cup" video last year, his take on Kirko Bangz' hit. With Bow Wow not responding to the suit, TMZ reports that a federal judge ordered the 106 & Park host to pay $79,346.07, and cease and desist distributing the April 2012 video.
