Cash Money Records' Bow Wow has reportedly put his foot down and refused to cough up nearly $80,000 to an adult film star who won a legal battle earlier this week against the rapper.
According to a statement posted on Bow Wow's Facebook page, he has no plans of paying actress Celine "Katsuni" Tran the full monty.
"Yo! That dumb a** porn star chick who ever she is aint getting a dime from us! We aint make no video. That video was mashed up by somebody on Youtube and i reposted cuz it was dope. People mash up artist videos all the time online. Everybody looking for a hustle. Then they tryna say drink in my cup is my song. That aint my song u dumb braud! Get a life. I dont play dem games. N*ggas work too hard to give away free money." (Bow Wow's Facebook)
Details of the hefty lawsuit victory surfaced across the Internet earlier this week.
Bow Wow has to cough up nearly $80,000 to a French porn star .... for allegedly jacking footage of her dancing and splashing it all over one of his videos without her permission ... TMZ has learned. Adult film star Celine Tran -- known as "Katsuni" -- sued Bow Wow back in July 2012, claiming he stole clips of her pole dancing in a music video for a French band called Electronic Conspiracy and then used a ton of the footage in his music video "Drank in My Cup" ... sans permission.

Instead of addressing the pricey suit, Bow Weezy fell back and, in return, suffered a huge loss.
Bow Wow didn't even respond to the lawsuit, so a federal judge ordered him to pony up $79,346.07 (damages + attorneys' fees) ... and stop with the footage STAT. Sad part is ... for $80k ... he never got to see her naked. (TMZ)
Reports of Katsuni's plans to take legal action against the rapper heated up the Internet last July.
Rapper Bow Wow swiped a dancer's performance from another band's music video and used it in his "Drank in My Cup" music video without permission, a French porn star claims in Federal Court. Celine Tran, professionally known as "Katsuni," claims she appeared as a "club dancer" in a music video for the French band Electronic Conspiracy. She says rapper Bow Wow (Shad Gregory Moss) used that dance performance in his "Drank in My Cup" music video without her permission to promote his upcoming album, "Underrated." He allegedly posted the music video on his official YouTube page and linked to it on Twitter on April 20. (Court House News)
