Rick Ross1 Rick Ross Being Sued For Teflon Don Name!

Rick Ross is getting sued, yet again, for trademark infringement, except this time it’s for his album title name not his own. Rapper Teflon Don, born Donald Askey Jr., filed a lawsuit today (Aug. 30) against Ross, also naming DJ Khaled, Def Jam Recordings, Universal Music Group, Slip-N-Slide Records and Maybach Music Group in the pending suit, for “trademark infringement, common-law trademark rights, trademark delusion, unfair competition, tortious interference and fraud and identity theft,” according to MemphisRap.com.

Teflon Don claims that Rick Ross and everyone involved in Ross’ Billboard 200 No. 2 album, “Teflon Don,” infringed on his brand, ultimately disrupting his growth and success. “I’m building a name, I’m building a brand and for someone to come with an album and an alias the name “Teflon Don” and they have big budgets to put behind it, it blocks me from progressing. I was climbing the ladder and it feels like I went straight downhill and I don’t feel like that’s fair.”
