Say My Name, Bitch!
HOUSTON (AP) -- A Houston woman is suing a former high school
classmate who took her name and is now using it in pornographic movies. Kristen Syvette Wimberly, 25, is asking that Lara Madden and the Vivid Entertainment Group stop using and publicizing her name, which Madden took as a stage name. Madden, 25, began her adult-film career in 2004 and has appeared in about a dozen adult films using the name "Syvette Wimberly."
Caj Boatright, attorney for the real Kristen Syvette Wimberly, claims that the events outlined in the case have caused the plantiff significant emotional stress by making her the target of near-constant teasing by her friends and co-workers.
In a related item, Caj Boatright is also the subject of a lawsuit filed by an anonymous gay porn star who claims that the name "Caj Boatright" was stolen from him and has now been permanently tarnished due to the nature of Boatright's occupation.
