On Monday, former “The Amazing Race” contestant Janae Lee filed a lawsuit against tattoo artist Kevin Gifford claiming she was defamed by the tattoo artist’s Instagram post, claiming the post was defamatory and made disparaging comments about Lee’s looks and health.
The lawsuit filed in the Northern District of California alleges that Giffords “filed this baseless lawsuit in an attempt to silence the plaintiff and her family and falsely portray her as an uneducated, unprofessional and ‘unfit’ person.”
The post said Giffards “failed to obtain any prior medical examination” before posting the photo.
Giffords’ attorney, John B. Hensley, said the post is “a public forum” and has been published in multiple news outlets.
The post has been removed from Giffds Instagram account.
Giffs attorneys also claim that the photo was a hoax, according to the Daily Mail.
The tattoo artist and Giff, who have a son together, have been friends for about two years.
The two have been dating for four years.
Hensley also said that the lawsuit was filed after the Instagram post was shared on social media.
Hays said that Gaffords’ attorneys “have asked the court to prevent him from making future posts on Instagram and to stop posting disparaging or defamating comments about Janaean Lee.
The defendant has already posted numerous comments about her appearance and has made disparagement and defamations about Jina Lee.”
Gifford’s attorney, Mark Zaid, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Lee, who has a son with the tattooist, said she had been using the tattoo to remind her of her child’s birthday.
She said she has had a number of tattoos, but none of her were as bold and graphic as Giff’s.
Lee also said she was not seeking monetary damages from Giffs.
Gifson said that he didn’t know Lee and the couple met on Instagram, but she said she found out through a friend.
Giffson said Lee had a tattoo of her on her upper left thigh that read, “I hope my daughter is doing great.
She is so beautiful.”
Lee, a 25-year-old mother of two, posted the photo on her Instagram account on March 23, 2016.
It went viral and has since been shared more than 5 million times.
Giffin, who was not named in the lawsuit, said on Instagram that Lee had an accident and that he posted the caption, “Hope she has a smooth ride home.
This is not an accident.
I am sorry.”
Giffin told the Daily Beast that he felt like Lee’s post was disrespectful.
“I was trying to be kind of humorous in the post,” he said.
“I just wanted to help her.”
Lee’s attorneys, Hens and Andrew Kallberg, did work on the case together.
Kallheim said he did not work on Giffs case.
“Our goal was not to try to get the tattoo removed, but we wanted to get it removed from the internet,” Kallungs said.
Giffe told The Hill that he was not aware of the lawsuit until it came to his attention.
Giffe said that while he doesn’t condone the tattoo, he has always been supportive of the people who are in the tattoo industry.
He said that after Lee posted the post, he got a call from someone at the tattoo parlor, who had a similar tattoo, and she asked him to remove it.GIFFORD, who is a tattoo parlour owner, told the Hill that “she is very talented, and I do respect her ability to do it.”
