BET Lawsuit Continues as B. Scott Declines Settlement
B. Scott’s legal drama with his BET lawsuit is far from over, much to the dismay of their lawyers. The renowned blogger filed a gender identity discrimination lawsuit with the company after last year’s BET Awards, where B. Scott claims they forced him to trade his normal high heels and flowing weave for a more masculine look. But he lost the BET lawsuit in April and was ordered to pay close to $300,000 in the company’s lawyer fees. BET offered to reduce B. Scott’s payment to a mere $15,000 if he did not pursue an appeal to the court’s decision. But B. Scott is not going down without a fight, telling TMZ, “No one will tell me who I should be, how I should present myself, or what I do with my life.” Lawyers have responded by demanding a payment of at least $150,00 in the BET lawsuit.
