Porn Star Steals Name. Gets Sued.
Lara Madden, 25, of Texas, has been sued by former friend, Syvette Wimberly, for stealing her name and using it as her porn alias.
Wimberly discovered the truth after several people kept asking if she was in the adult industry.
Her lawyer said: "“Really on a weekly, if not daily basis, my client has had to deal with odd phone calls, former classmates that didn't know her sending her e-mails about whether she's now in the adult film industry and just a general lack of safety for her.”
Madden and Wimberly had been friends in the ninth grade.
"I imagine she knew the name and maybe thought it sounded catchy and unique," Wimberly said.
Lara Madden has used the name since 2004 in at least 15 porn flicks produced by Vivid Entertainment.
Wimberly is suing the popular adult film studio and Madden for an invasion of privacy and emotional distress. She's asking for monetary compensation and for Madden to stop using her name.
