TruTV Not Yanking 'Rehab' over Hard Rock War

9/23/2010 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TruTV's reality show at the "Rehab" pool party is so raunchy, allegedly, it's spawned a lawsuit between Hard Rock and the Hard Rock Hotel -- but that doesn't mean it's going off the air.

The lawsuit was filed yesterday by the owner of the Hard Rock brand -- who claims "Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel" has damaged the company name by associating it with "drunken debauchery, acts of vandalism, sexual harassment, violence."

Despite the nasty lawsuit, reps for TruTV say the show is still a go -- saying, "The current season will continue on as planned."

If the owner of the Hard Rock brand ends up winning the suit, there could be a name change at the hotel -- although "Rehab: Party at the Hotel Formerly Known as the Hard Rock" ain't so catchy.
