Bow Wow must pay French porn star $80,000 for stealing striptease footage

Rapper Bow Wow didn't want to pay a French porn star for video footage of her performing a striptease, so now a judge says he has to fork over almost $80,000 to make up for it. Wouldn't it have been easier to just hit the ATM for a few singles?

Celine Tran, who makes adult movies under the name Katsuni, made a video for a French band called The Electronic Conspiracy for their song, Conspiracy Strip Club. Apparently Bow Wow liked the video so much, he swiped a bunch of her footage and used it in his own, Drank in My Cup, TMZ says. He didn't bother telling her, however, so she sued him in July 2012.

The site says that after Bow Wow didn't even respond to the lawsuit, it was obvious the footage was stolen, so the rapper was orded to pay $79,346.07 in damages and attorney fees, and he had to stop using the footage in the video immediately. You can watch the original video above and Bow Wow's video below, but be warned that while there's no nudity, both videos are NSFW and the songs are pretty awful.
