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.

First I do not think he would have filed a lawsuit if the show was handled different. We have all had those bosses who are total ass. But Matt is not just an ass he is abusive and could if not careful get himself sued. After all the older guy Matt keeps sending to due his laundry and walk his dog is concidered a violation of OSHA. Then the way Matt treats women is wrong maybe he is gay and that is why he is an ass to every single women. No matter what I am not going to rehab as I do not need the drama
