Amber Rose emerges victorious in court.
Since Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa parted ways as a couple, it's safe to say that Rose and the rapper's mother haven't been on great terms. Back in August, Katie Wimbush-Polk filed a defamation lawsuit against her son's ex, where a phone call that was had with a mutual friend transformed into an Amber Rose tirade where she had some choice words for Wiz's mother. On top of that, the lawsuit also claims that Rose told Wiz's mom that she was responsible for the death of her son, Dorien Thomaz, who died back in February from lymphoma.
Today, TMZ is reporting that Rose emerged victorious in court after the judge threw out the lawsuit based on the notion that nothing Rose said or did fell into the category of extreme or outrageous, which is what is needed in order to validate a claim of emotional distress. "Mere insults, indignities, threats, annoyances, petty oppressions, and other trivialities" are not the same thing, according to the judge who presided over the ruling.
In other words, the court is chalking this up to nothing more than just a nasty family beef. Unpleasant, yes. Worthy of awarding Wimbush-Polk tens of thousands of dollars in damages, as well as having Rose cover the legal costs, nope.
The spat has been a nasty one though, with Rose originally filing for a restraining order against Wimbush-Polk, fearing that if her former in-law was to lash out at her in front of Bash, the son she had with Wiz, the effects on the youngster could be negative. So far, there has been no official response from Khalifa himself regarding the case or today's ruling.
Instead, Wiz has chosen to speak out about the drug culture in hip-hop, as it relates to the death of Lil Peep. "I just feel like somebody has to speak up for people who don't believe in that, or are really tired of seeing it," he told Complex News. "It's unfortunate that Lil Peep had to die and stuff like that, but these are the things people are gonna start seeing and keep happening if they don't really relax and fall back. I just want to be the responsible person and say something.”
