Federal Judge George Schiavelli has denied a request for a temporary restraining order by Karrine Steffans – the hip hop music video feature artist known as “Superhead” – that sought to disrupt distribution of a new Vivid Entertainment DVD titled “Superhead.”
Ms. Steffans had requested a temporary restraining order against Vivid with regard to advertising and a box cover photo of her on the DVD, which Vivid released on April 21st. The DVD features her performing explicit sex scenes with famous adult actor Mr. Marcus that Vivid says clearly demonstrate the notorious sexual prowess for which she earned her nickname.
One of Ms. Steffans’ complaints was her allegation that Vivid implied she had an exclusive agreement with Vivid; however, she did not. Judge Schiavelli noted that Ms. Steffans had made an insufficient showing that she was likely to prevail on the merits of her case. Ms. Steffans’ underlying lawsuit against Vivid Entertainment Group and Vivid Entertainment LLC for a permanent injunction and money damages over the “Superhead” DVD remains pending before Judge Schiavelli.
Ms. Steffans has been in the news lately as she promotes her book. A press release promoting her appearance this month on a segment of the Oprah Winfrey Show called “Smart Women on Stupid Girls,” noted that that Ms. Steffans “was 21 years old when she made her video debut. She danced in videos alongside some of the biggest artists in the industry, including Jay-Z, R. Kelly and LL Cool J. She quickly became a full-time booty shaking, breast baring dancer—but success came at a price.”
