Benzino On The Lawsuit

From today’s AllHipHop.com:

AllHipHop.com: Can you just talk honestly about this lawsuit filed?

Benzino: Oh definitely, yes, the lawsuit was like—usually when people get fired sometimes, especially this magazine there’s been walkouts and again, journalist people, they’re a real crazy bunch of people.

AllHipHop.com: [Laughs]

Benzino: But um, basically Kim Osorio, we had let go, we had terminated a man for her to get that job. So now that we terminated her for a man, she’s screaming sexual discrimination. What we’re gonna do is counter sue her because that’s totally false because especially when we have record of—we have proof of her having many sexual relations with a lot of the artists that she was actually interviewing a lot. And we will counter sue her for defamation of character and then after that, we’ll just let the courts decide it.

AllHipHop.com: Wait, what does her relations have to do with this lawsuit?

Benzino: I’m saying, I’m saying like we will counter sue her for defamation of character because her holding that position of Editor and Chief and having sexual relations and definitely her conduct as how she treated this magazine when she was here, that’s definitely gonna have something to do with her lawsuit…

AllHipHop.com: Are you trying to say that both of these women’s claims are illegitimate?

Benzino: The other woman didn’t even do nothing around here. She faked that she was having breast cancer so that we wouldn’t fire her. These people were getting big salaries. They can’t get these big salaries no where else. They were doing a weak job. It’s our magazine and we fired them. I have the right too.

AllHipHop.com: And why would they lie about, like why would they—

Benzino: Clover, you’re gonna have to find that out. It doesn’t—but you know what, it doesn’t matter. Does it matter? Whose company is it?

AllHipHop.com: Mmhm.

Benzino: Do you own AllHipHop?

AllHipHop.com: Nope.

Benzino: If you got fired would it really matter what you say about who’s this or whatever—or like if they fired you today, would it matter?

AllHipHop.com: Would what matter?

Benzino: Would it matter like what your opinion is. Like how many people do you know who are gonna be happy when they get fired.

AllHipHop.com: [Laughs] everybody.

Benzino: Okay, then so then you just answered your own question then.

AllHipHop.com: Well I don’t know why—

Benzino: It’s okay, just keep it moving. I don’t mind that, Clover. Zino and The Source ain’t going nowhere. We’re gonna stomp out the competition. It is what it is.

    It’s good to know that intelligent, articulate people are running things over at the Source. Good luck, Kim Osorio!

    soooo…..because he owns the company, it doesn’t matter what anyone says about alleged discriminatory employment practices? is he for f*ckin’ real, or just playing stupid? These guys have lawyers and everything, don’t they?

    He sounds like Black Bush…”oh, right! you don’t have an army. Then you need to SHUT THE F*CK UP.”
