An actress has sued Snoop Dogg and MTV over an episode of the television show “Doggy Fizzle Televizzle,” in which she claimed she was unwittingly made to appear as if she were naked and engaging in sexual relations with another actor.
According to Associated Press, in a lawsuit filed Friday, Doris Burns accuses Snoop Dogg, whose real name is Calvin Broadus, and MTV of breach of contract, fraud, invasion of privacy and defamation. She is seeking unspecified damages.
A spokeswoman for MTV, which produced and aired the show, said the company does not comment on pending litigation. Messages left over the weekend for Snoop Dogg’s attorney were not returned.
Burns alleges that during the filming of a scene for the sketch comedy show hosted by Snoop Dogg, the show’s producers wanted it to appear that she was having sex with an actor playing her husband.
According to the suit, she refused. But she did agree to wear a tank top and underwear and hold the hand of the actor while sitting on the bed.
When the show aired Aug. 31, the episode looked very different because her torso and both actors’ hands were blurred, according to the suit.
