Bow Wow and Katsuni

After failing to respond to a lawsuit against him last summer, Bow Wow has been ordered to fork over $80,000 to French pornstar Katsuni for using footage of her for a music video without permission.

According to, the XXX star (real name: Celine Tran) sued the rapper in July 2012, claiming he used footage of her pole dancing for The Electronic Conspiracy music video "Conspiracy Strip Club" in his own video for a song called "Drank in My Cup."

A federal judge ruled in Katsuni's favor recently, ordering Bow Wow to pay up $79,346.07 in damages and attorney's fees.

Additionally, he was also ordered to stop using the footage immediately.
