Amber Rose is being sued by her ex-mother-in-law.
Wiz Khalifa’s mom, Katie Wimbush-Polk, has apparently taken aim at Rose for defamation, alleging that the model has severely damaged her reputation with allegations of being a negligent parent.
According to the Washington County Observer-Reporter, Wimbush-Polk claims that the incident stems back to a “profanity-laced” phone call, Rose placed to her line on June 19. Although Polk’s 5-year-old niece initially answered the phone, the lawsuit claims that Polk’s friend, Danesa Letic, eventually gained control of the phone, when Rose continued her vicious tirade.
During Rose’s rant, the suit alleges that the mother of one accused Wimbush-Polk of allowing her daughter, Dorien to die and was subsequently unfit to care for her grandson Sebastian. Dorien, Khalifa’s sister, reportedly died in February/ 2017, after suffering from complications with lymphoma — a specific type of cancer involving cells of the immune system.
Based on Wimbush-Polk’s attorney’s account, the call “impute(d) criminality, which is incompatible with her status as a grandmother and her status as a volunteer mentoring at-risk youth.” Khalifa’s mother also insists Rose’s comments were a personal attack on her reputation in the community, and have resulted in push back from those she works with.
Although the incident may seem a bit random, Rose’s alleged revenge call may have been provoked by reports that Polk recently reported Rose to California child services over claims of poor parenting. However, Polk denies that claim, the Observer reports.
Wimpush-Polk is reportedly suing Rose to the tune of $50K, which suit will cover her legal fees and other punitive damages caused by the comments.
Neither Rose nor Khalifa have commented on the suit. Here’s to hoping they can come to a peaceful solution — and keep Sebastian out of it — without dragging each other to court. What are your thoughts on Khalifa’s mother coming for Rose? Sound off in the comment section below.
