'Storage Wars' Star

and Trey Songz --

YUUUP ... They've Settled

6/23/2012 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Did Trey Songz and 'Storage Wars" star David Hester settle their dueling lawsuits over the phrase YUUUP? YUUUP!

Did TMZ first report that Songz and Hester each filed dueling complaints in New York, because each wanted the right to sell merchandise with the aforementioned phrase of affirmation? YUUUP!

Did lawyers for both parties file docs this week dismissing their lawsuits? YUUUP!

Were the terms of the settlement made public? NOPE

Are you as tired of this gag as we are? Don't answer that ...

I no longer watch the show because of the obvious staging and poorly written "setups."

Trey Songz has been saying Yuuup since his first album in 2005. That's long before Storage Wars was even a show. That SHOULD be case closed.

two cents    

Yes the show is staged. You see ALL those people in the background yet the regulars are the only ones who ever "win" the unit. It's still funny to watch though. But his "yuuup" is annoying as hell. He looks like an idiot.

Stage?, absolutely
Annoying?, for sure

But whoever, believes storage auctions do not find stuff like this should keep their traps shut, in the 7 years we have been doing auctions, we have found at least 3 units over 50k each, and many many around 10k, I no longer try to figure out why it happens, it just does, can't find money????, a friend of mine bought a 'build-up' unit 1 year ago, and I bought the one next to him, inside the build-up was a duffle bag with 50k of dirty/wrinkly $20 bills (probably drug money), it's rare and I have never found more then $20 in cash, but if you go to enough auctions and you have a pocket full of cash you WILL eventually find treasure. We have many stories and I can probably write a books on 'real' finds

What a waster of air and brain power...

I am a full time working auctioneer and like Trey's version better...

If you have ever been to any sort of auctioneer training or to a ringmans training course the Yuuups are ground into your head.

Auctioneers have been trading & selling "Yep" tapes for years.

Hester is not doing anything new...

But he is clogging up TESS a little at the USTPO office where this entire matter would be dropped in a New York Minute...

Two different Yeps and Yuups

The most ridiculous case ever. How the heck can anyone own a slang word? Neither was invented by these guys. Yup has been around since forever, along with aha, yea, yay, yesiree yeppers and any other way of saying yes. What a waste of time and money trying to own a friggin word everyone uses.
