All of this is over a phone call
Wiz’s Khalifa’s mother has filed a defamation lawsuit against Wiz Khalifa’s ex-wife Amber Rose. Katie Wimbush-Polk filed suit in Washington County, PA alleging that Rose made disparaging remarks about her to a former employee of Wimbush-Polk’s. According to the lawsuit, Rose claimed that Wimbush-Polk was an unfit mother and that she shouldn’t be allowed to care for her son with Khalifa, Sebastian.
Wimbush-Polk’s suit says that Rose called her friend and former employee Danesa Letic and launched into a “profane attack” on the grandmother of her young son. The call allegedly dealt with the death of Wimbush-Polk’s son Dorien.
According to the Washington Observer-Reporter, Rose made the call in response to Wimbush-Polk calling Child Protective Services on her on June 19th. The suit says that Wimbush-Polk “made no such report at or around that time.”
She called Letic and launched into a rant. According to the suit, Letic’s five-year-old niece answered the phone and wasn’t able to identify herself before Rose began her rant.
The suit goes on to say that Rose claimed Wimbush-Polk was responsible for the death of her young son Dorien. The brother to rapper Wiz Khalifa passed away this February due to complications from lymphoma.
Wimbush-Polk’s lawsuit claims that the alleged conversation “imputed criminality,” which the suit goes on to say is “incompatible with her status as a grandmother and her status as a volunteer mentoring at-risk youth.”
Wimbush-Polk claims that the conversation damaged her standing, as well as caused her embarrassment and mental anguish. She is suing for damages in excess of $50,000. The exact damages have been specified but they include court costs, interest, punitive and other damages.
