“A Porn Star Stole My Name”

‘Lara Madden is a 25-year-old porn movie actress who uses the stage name Syvette Wimberly when starring in films like “Anal Camera 19.” While Madden’s professional alias is catchy and distinctive, the name is identical to that of a former Texas high school pal of the X-rated performer. As a result, Kristen Syvette Wimberly, 25, has filed a lawsuit against Madden and the porn distributor Vivid Entertainment for the misappropriation of her name. In a June 26 complaint filed in Harris County District Court, Wimberly notes that she and Madden became friends after meeting at the beginning of ninth grade in Kingwood, Texas. That friendship, however, “ended due to conflict,” according to the lawsuit, a copy of which you’ll find below. The complaint adds that Madden (who is pictured at right) married while in high school and did not graduate with Wimberly, who lost contact with her former friend. Until recently, that is, when Wimberly discovered that, “there was a woman appearing in multiple explicit pornographic videos” using her name. Wimberly soon learned, the lawsuit reports, that the porn actress who boosted her name “was her former high school friend Lara Madden.” The porn star, Wimberly alleges, deliberately chose to use her name, despite realizing that it would cause “extreme embarrassment and unsubstantiated association with the pornography industry and other consequences.” [..]’

    It seems like she may have a good case since it is obvious that the porn performer personally knew the other woman, and is quoted as saying she took her name on purpose because she thought it sounded cool. Probably not a good idea. I’m sure Vivid can easily afford to pay her off and make this go away.

    Just remember, if you decide to be a porn star, don’t use your friend’s name as your fake name. If it wasn’t already obvious that it is a stupid idea, it should be now. Duh.

    This is hardly a good case by any means. News breaking all last week says that Laura Madden, the girl who stole the name is married to a former CIA officer Alan Premel. The lawsuit will get dropped and pardoned due to her political and CIA power. Can they just BLOW this lawsuit off? well, apparently they might be able too its a porn star afterall.
