EDITED, April 23, 7:30 am:
Edited to correct the name of the law firm.
I guess Catherine Brewton, who runs BMI's Atlanta office, was feeling some kind of way about this post that I wrote two days ago. Yesterday, she sent the full weight of the Greenberg Traurig law firm after me.
Yesterday morning, an attorney named Mark Trigg called me (I don't know how he got my number). Out of courtesy, I informed Mr. Trigg that our call was being recorded, which I didn't have to do since Georgia law requires only one person to know the call is being recorded, and that would be me.
Mr. Trigg started off nice enough, but then the call quickly went South when he started yapping about shutting my blog down by the end of the day (yesterday) if I didn't remove my post and a Photoshopped picture that was used to illustrate the post.
I told Mr. Trigg that I was surprised to hear that there was a law against Photoshopping pictures (there is none that I know of) and that all the major media outlets engage in photo manipulation of public figures every day. If Photoshopping public figures was against the law, then the courtrooms would be clogged with lawsuits against every magazine and newspaper in the country.
Anyway, to make a long story short, I removed the photo (even though I didn't have to). But not one single word in my original post has been altered or deleted. I don't feel the need to remove a post if I have full confidence in my sources.
Besides, celebrities with pockets deeper than Catherine Brewton's, including Kimora Lee Simmons and others, have all unleashed their attorneys against me at one time or another. But after the dust clears, Sandrarose.com remains standing and not one of those posts has been removed.
Until Barack Obama overturns the Constitution, this is still America and the Constitution fiercely protects my right to say my piece.
The bottom line is, this all boils down to the fact that Brewton may have panicked after reading my post because she wasn't supposed to pay Drake for his appearance at her BMI unsigned talent showcase. I don't know if she paid him or not. But my credible sources tell me that Drake "absolutely" received an appearance fee to perform at the BMI showcase on Tuesday (April 20). Again, I stand by my sources.
There is no shortage of stories from industry people who have had run-ins with the ice queen, Catherine Brewton. Click the link below to view an email I received from a reader who asked to remain anonymous. I laughed out loud when I read his email because that's Catherine Brewton to a T!
Catherine Brewton is that special breed of narcissist who can totally devalue, degrade, disrespect and dismiss you all within the first few minutes of meeting her.
