Rapper The-Dream has been hit with a new lawsuit over a 2010 car crash in Georgia.
Elaine Nowells allegedly broke her back and suffered physical and emotional pain after her car collided with a vehicle being driven by Patrick Thall, a supposed employee at the rapper’s music label Radio Killa Records.
The driver has now launched a legal battle against Thrall, The-Dream, and his firm, as the worker was reportedly on-duty at the time of the crash.
However, the record producer, real name Terius Nash, has fired back at the allegations, telling, “Pat Thrall Is NOT an EMPLOYEE of Radiokilla Records, IDJ (Island Def Jam), or any of its affiliate companies. He is an independent contractor (engineer) who was on the way to his hotel when the accident occurred. We are sorry to hear about her (Nowells’) injuries and we hope she gets better.
“We are almost certain that her attorneys put pressure on her to file a lawsuit. Unfortunately, that’s the NEW American Dream. Can’t win in life, sue someone who can.”
Nowells is seeking damages to cover the cost of her medical bills.
