The You Got Served producer Christopher Stokes actually served “Straight From the A” blogger Michelle Brown with a lawsuit because of what he believed was flagrant defamation of his character and image and ceaseless harassment for the past several years.

Brown, for her turn, found out that freedom of speech is actually not free under certain circumstances, and it cost her a million dollars to learn that lesson, court documents state.

A suburban Los Angeles court ruled in favor of Stokes in the amount of just more than a million dollars because of Brown’s relentless story writings and YouTube postings about Stokes’ alleged sexual relations with then under-aged B2K band members, most particularly Raz B. The lawsuit judgment also forces the tenacious “Straight from the A” blogger to take down any and all defamatory and inflammatory material related to Stokes immediately.

It didn’t help matters, presumably, that Brown posted such contentious Twitter exchanges between herself and Stokes:

“LMAO ‪@chrisstokes1969 coming for me. I like men, you like boys. Mine is legal, urs gets u locked up.”

And this when Stokes poked at Brown’s portliness:

‪@chrisstokes1969 I like food and you like d—-….so what else you got?”

The Superior Court of California (in Anaheim, Calif.,) actually ruled in Stokes’ favor around Christmastime, but the judgment is just now reaching the media.chris-stokes and raz b

Sources close to the case also mention that, because Brown has refused to take down all the damaging information related to Stokes — she has taken down most of it — she is possibly facing a similar defamation lawsuit in the state of Georgia, where she is obviously based. Stokes felt that he was forced to take Brown to court because Brown refused to stop writing and posting damaging information about Stokes, claiming that he sexually abused Raz B (photo’d with Raz B above) and other members of B2K throughout the course of his management of the group.

This is not the first time that Brown has been the subject of contentious court battles with celebrities. It is well known in Atlanta that former “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Sheree Whitfield filed an unsuccessful restraining order against the Straight from the A blogger and others who were reporting regularly about Whitfield’s incomplete and embarrassing “Chateau Sheree” home in metro ATL.


Take a look at the court documents from Southern Cal that detail the judgement in favor of Stokes in his case against Brown:
