Brenda Song successfully sues Escort Agency

“Layla. Hawaiin beauty. Come get lei’d.”

Layla, you’ve got me on my knees.
Layla, I’m begging, darling please.
Layla, darling won’t you ease my worried mind.

– Eric Clapton

Very bizarre tale this!

What a dumb Escort Agency advert!

Lots of publicity for Layla …. erm, sorry Brenda … Song though! And indeed the Escort Agency!

Must’ve been real disappointing for customers who’d expected a stunning young Asian hotty called Layla they’d kind of seen on the Disney Channel to turn up in their hotel room, but instead finding some 40 year old, haggard, dazed, white, Crack Ho called Rubyjane from the local trailer park!!

It’s really those customers who should be doing the suing here!

Perhaps a Class Action Law Suit?!!

Or, rather, a No-Class Law Suit!!

Thai-American hotty and Disney TV star Brenda Song has won her legal battle against a company who used her photograph to advertise an escort service.

The Suite Life of Zack & Cody actress will receive £70,600 from Vibe Media Inc, which published a head shot of the star in an advert in LA Weekly newspaper last year.

The ad read, “Hawaiin (sic) beauty. Come get lei’d.”

Song has said: “As a role model to millions of young people, I feel I have to take a stand against this company in regard to its exploitation of my image.”

On April 18, 2008, a picture of Song was used in an ad for an escort agency in the back of that week’s LA Weekly. Disney lawyers were not pleased with the use of Song’s copyrighted image for advertising adult activities. A rep from Disney told TMZ: “This is an unauthorized use of Brenda Song’s image and her personal attorney has issued a cease and desist to the advertiser.”

Song filed a libel suit against the Vibe Media Inc. seeking at least $100,000 in damages. Song said: “As a role model to millions of young people, I feel I have to take a stand against this company in regard to its exploitation of my image.”

Song’s attorney said the photo used in the ad was taken when Song was 16 years old. Song’s attorney later found that an individual, and not Vibe Media, was responsible for the use of the photo. He told Back Stage:

I’m not sure if they were trying to just find a picture of a pretty girl or an Asian-looking girl or whether they expected that Brenda would be recognized …. Brenda’s demographic is a lot different from what I would suppose the clients of this business are. If you’re the sort of person who would use the services of a business like this, it is quite possible that you have never heard of Brenda Song.

Song’s attorney said that it may be hard to show how much the misuse of the photo hurt her career, but that a lawsuit was needed. “Brenda’s public image is very important to her. Brenda has been careful to not accept roles that would taint her in the way that some other young actors have been.”
