Birdman Threatened With Lawsuit Over ‘Respek’

Months ago, Birdman demanded Charlemagne Tha God and The Breakfast Club put some “respek” on his name. A clothing company is now threatening to file a lawsuit for Birdman to put some respeck on theirs.

Business owner, JV, filed a trademark for the word “Respek” in 2005 and has been selling shirts and hats on his website ThisRespekWear.com ever since.

JV’s attorney has reportedly sent a letter to Birdman, requesting the Hip Hop mogul call him.

JV has since taken to IG to deny he is looking for money, but only credit of his hard work:

“Certain media outlets will always try and create “Beef”, im far from that. If it’s not positive vibes I don’t want anything to do with it, for me this lawsuit, this attention has nothing to do with money. It has EVERYTHING to do with me working a full 9-5 coming home and working until 5 am, building my brand from iron on t-shirts to canvas art. It has EVERYTHING to do with me staying the course, going through my ups and downs and staying true to myself during the process. It has EVERYTHING to do with believing in myself and the people in my circle that our mission is to not only uplift each other but to uplift those around us. So as much as I appreciate the TMZ articles etc they DO NOT tell the whole story and I don’t expect them to because at the end of the day THIS RESPEK is earned not given and I put that on my name 10 years ago. I’m hoping to turn this into something even more positive to show media outlets like TMZ and others that brothers @birdman5star Can work together to uplift and build which is the ultimate RESPEK. #mystory…..oh yeah #‎WHATUPTHO!!!!”
