A woman who worked as an in-house publicist and attorney for the music group Insane Clown Posse (ICP) has filed a lawsuit against members of the group claiming she was subjected to constant sexual harassment during her tenure with the group.
Andrea Pelligreni claims to have had sex toys given to her while she worked, including items used for a woman's vagina.
She said she was mocked, belittled and was the subject of sexual advances from the top level persons at Psychopathic Record - including William Dail who is the president of Psychopatic Records and Robert Bruce who worked as her supervisor.
In her lawsuit, Pelligreni claims she was asked to do illegal and unethical things at her job - including being asked to obtain automatic weapons for a photo shoot.
She alleges when she refused and then reported the sexual harassment she claimed to undergo she was fired.
The lawsuit seeks compensation for the following damages: Medical expenses, emotional distress, pain and suffering, fright and shock, horror, outrage and indignity and wage losses.
The lawsuit was filed in Oakland County Circuit Court Monday.
Other Lawsuits Involving ICP
In August of 2012 lawyers for Insane Clown Posse filed their own lawsuit seeking documents that would explain why the FBI considers its fans a gang.
The lawsuit in Flint federal court says the FBI failed to timely respond to a 2011 request under the Freedom of Information Act. Insane Clown Posse fans are known as Juggalos.
In 2011, the FBI included Juggalos in its national report on gangs.
The report doesn't mention a direct connection to Insane Clown Posse, but says many Juggalos have "gang-like behavior" and commit crimes and violence.
The report has a picture of a Juggalo wearing face paint and aiming a gun.
In October 2012 ICP was scheduled to perform at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on Halloween, but the Police Department asked the theatre’s management to cancel the concert.
“Our concern is based on the number of concerts, throughout the country, in which ICP followers have created significant problems for local police departments,” Royal Oak Police Lt. Thomas Goad wrote in a memo, which was obtained by Local 4.
Goad went on to explain that ICP followers, known as “Juggalos,” are classified as an organized gang by the FBI. He also said extra police had to be called in for an ICP concert a few years ago when they performed in Ferndale.
The concert was moved to the Fillmore in Detroit.
