Andrea Pellegrini, former publicist and attorney for ICP record label Psychopathic Records, has sued the rappers, the label's president, and two other employees. Pellegrini alleges a massive variety of offenses, ranging from workplace misconduct, to being presented with a "large dildo" and "vagina tighteners," to being asked to acquire illegal firearms for a photoshoot.

The 17-page lawsuit names Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope as defendants, alongside William Dale, Robert Bruce, and Dan Diamond.

From the suit:

Plaintiff, an in--house publicist and attorney for the outlandish and controversial music group "The Insane Clown Posse" (known as ICP) was subjected to constant and pervasive harassment during her tenure, including having a large dildo given to her while at work, and being presented with "vagina tighteners." Plaintiff was mocked, belittled, and the subject of sexual advances from top level persons at ICP's label, Psychopathic Records. Plaintiff was even asked to do illegal and/or unethical things at her job, including Defendants asking her to obtain automatic tommy--guns for a photo shoot. When Plaintiff refused to act unethically or illegally, and reported the sexual harassment she was experiencing at the hands of Defendants, she was terminated.

The suit goes on to specify each of the incidents in question, including Psychopathic executives allegedly instructing Pellegrini to lie to government investigators from the U.S. Department of Labor who were looking into the label.

Pellegrini's attorney, Jonathan Marko, told the Detroit News: “We’re asking for a substantial amount of money to compensate her for what she’s gone through and is continuing to go through."
