The woman who sued Redskins tight end Fred Davis for a 2011 altercation has sued him again, this time for defamation.
According to the Washingtonian, Davis and his (sometimes) bodyguard Stewart Prince allegedly lied about Makini Chaka by calling her a “madam” and a “pimpette.”
Chaka describes herself as a “celebrity broker.” Davis and Prince have claimed that she provides escorts to high-profile athletes and entertainers.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court, apparently arises from statements made within the confines of the original lawsuit, filed after Davis allegedly dumped juice on Chaka and threw a bottle at her. Typically, statements made as part of litigation proceedings are protected against defamation claims.
Of course, nuances like what the law does and doesn’t allow possibly get lost in the shuffle when an intensely personal — and highly entertaining — controversy clogs up the legal system.
