Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Rapper Bow Wow has been ordered by a California District Court judge to pay a French porn star $80,000 for using footage of her in his videos without her consent.

The said porn star is Celine Tan, who sued Bow Wow (Shad Gregory Moss in real life) in 2012 for using clips of her pole dancing (allegedly stolen from another music video) in his music video “Drank in My Cup.”

According to TMZ, the 26-year-old rapper did not respond to the lawsuit. Aside from having to pay the dues, Bow Wow is forbidden to continue using the footage in his video.

Bow Wow, according to the court documents, will have to cough up $79,346.07, which includes $51,900 in punitive damages and $26,170 in attorney’s fees, plus other miscellaneous fees.
