#Roommates, Lil Nas X has seen incredible success with his chart-topping, Grammy-nominated album ‘Montero,’ but according to new legal documents he could be facing a serious lawsuit for allegedly stealing another artist’s work. A metal-rap artist has just filed a cease and desist against Lil Nas X because she claims that he ripped off the pregnancy promo idea for ‘Montero’ from her album rollout.
@Blast reports, metal-rap artist Dana Dentata is hurling some serious new allegations at Lil Nas X, who she claims completely ripped off the pregnancy and giving birth idea to promote his album ‘Montero’ from her album ‘Pantychrist.’ She alleges that his ‘Lil Nas X Gives Birth’ video and the subsequent artwork depicting him as pregnant was stolen from her album that was released months before his dropped back in September. Dentata alleges that he used “copyrighted material” which is “essentially identical to the ‘Pantychrist’ music video and clearly used the work as its basis.” If Lil Nas and Dentata cannot come to a settlement agreement, she is threatening to file an official lawsuit against him for copyright infringement.
The cease and desist states “The sonogram image your client released, as well as the photographs depicting him as pregnant wearing a prosthetic stomach in promotion of Montero, which appears on Instagram and in People Magazine, are also nearly identical and, again, clearly used my client’s works as their basis. You neither asked for nor received permission to use my client’s Works as the basis for LIL NAS X GIVES BIRTH, and as a promotional content for Montero, nor to make or distribute copies of it. Therefore, we believe you have willfully infringed her rights.”
Additionally, Dana Dentata is further demanding that all distribution of the album be immediately stopped:
“I demand that you immediately cease the use and distribution of all infringing works derived from the works, and all copies, including electronic copies, of same, that you deliver to me, if applicable, all unused, undistributed copies of same, or destroy such copies immediately and that you desist from this or any other infringement of her rights in the future. It is inconceivable that you would wish to jeopardize your artist’s public image, and reputation by your client falsely claiming he created this copyrighted content.”
As of now, Lil Nas X has not publicly responded to the allegations or the cease and desist filing against him.

According to the 29-year-old lady, the man and her sister had been married for five years, and they only separated in November 2021 even though they aren’t officially divorced.
She revealed that after their separation, she and her in-law got close and he was paying her frequent visits to a point where she began to enjoy his company.
However, he suddenly asked for her hand in marriage and she is confused on whether to accept it or not. The lady further revealed that she would be 30 years old on 2nd of February.
In her words; ”Please, I need only matured minds on this.
It’s a serious matter.
My elder sister and her husband were married for 5 years and separated November last year but not divorced yet, though the families have been trying to reconcile them to come back together but my sister’s husband has been adamant about it.
I noticed that ever since his separation from my sister he started visiting my place, and now it has become frequent.
I allowed it because I see him as a brother, but now I am starting to really enjoy his company.
He has been helping me out with stuff and still maintains his kindness towards my parents.
He proposed marriage to me yesterday, and I have been confused.
