Beyonce gets sued


NEW YORK (Reuters) - The singer Beyonce Knowles has been sued by Abercrombie & Fitch Co over her intent to use its "Fierce" trademark on a fragrance to be launched in early 2010.

In a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in Columbus, Ohio, Abercrombie said Knowles' plan "poses a likelihood of confusion" for consumers that could deprive it of control over a mark it has used since 2002, and perhaps cost it sales.

Representatives of Knowles were not immediately available for comment.

Abercrombie said it has sold more than $190 million worth of fragrance under the Fierce name, and expects $64 million of sales in 2009.

The New Albany, Ohio-based company said the fragrance gives off a "signature" scent that is regularly dispersed in its 350 retail stores through scent machines or by employees.

"A&F's intent is that all garments that leave the store have the Fierce scent attached to them," the company said.

The fragrance maker Coty Inc has signed an agreement to market Knowles' fragrance.

After subduing him he was cuffed to a gurney and he broke loose and they shot him with a taser to restrain him...Sounds funny to me

Did a little digging and  the suicide attempt is true but the rest is flaky. From what I discovered is Sledge had been suffering from depression lately and indeed tried to harm himself that night. Alexa Cruz (girlfriend) said that sledge had a anxiety attack in the ambulance and wanted out so they released him and called the cops to the residence. When the cops arrived they shot him with tasers until he went into cardiac arrest says Stoney Curtis (Sledghammers director)
