Don Omar

Accused of Hijacking Yacht

For 'Danza Kuduro' Video

2/28/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



If you wanna film a yacht filled with babes for your music video, you have to ASK THE YACHT'S OWNER FIRST -- so says a new lawsuit, in which singer Don Omar is accused of smuggling hot chicks onto a boat for his "Danza Kuduro" video ... and illegally filming them on board.

The yacht in question -- named Le Reve -- appears at the 2:15 mark in the video ... when Don Omar approaches to find the girls partying on board. Naturally, they hop off and follow him.

But there's one problem -- according to the lawsuit, no one ever asked for any permission whatsoever to use or film the yacht ... especially to promote the "fast, lavish, over-the-top lifestyle" portrayed in the video.

The yacht's owner -- some Portuguese company -- is suing for trespass AND defamation, claiming it has suffered damages as a result of its association with the video's slutty vibe.

The company is suing Don Omar, his record company, and pretty much everyone involved in the video's production -- demanding a fat check.

Don's rep tells TMZ, the singer denies any responsibility for the shooting location in question. The rep says the recording company is responsible for clearing locations/yacht rentals. Calls to the other defendants weren't returned.

Don who? Julio? Johnson? Juan? Oh sorry i just realized its just another sh*tty music video, for another sh*tty song, using the same old sh*tty memes, for another sh*tty "artist".. Do I sound cynical? Excuse the sh*t out of me, while I sip Don Julio, read Don Juan, and wish I had Don Johnsons hair.. Keep the mediocrity coming losers..

So what??? This singer sucks, Portugal hasn't mattered for 300 years, don't trespass. I hope he loses the lawsuit because he seems like a broken off turd.

Hang on, they're just NOW getting around to filing a lawsuit? Danza Kuduro isn't exactly a new song... it's been around for what... 2-3 years now? Plus, half the song is in Portuguese and it was really popular in that market. So, they can't have just recently noticed this can they?
