A car dealership already being sued by 50 Cent has now been slapped with another lawsuit from Snoop Dogg.

Snoop Dogg, real name CALVIN BROADUS, has filed a complaint against Philadelphia's Gary Barbera Enterprises, which was sued by 50 Cent on 19 August (05) for trademark infringement.

The Pennsylvania company ran print advertisements featuring a superimposed image of Snoop Dogg on 22 August (05), just three days after 50 Cent filed his lawsuit.

Snoop is seeking over $2 million (GBP1.1 million) for trademark infringement, unfair competition and violating his privacy.

50 Cent, real name CURTIS JACKSON, is suing the company for similar trademark violations and is seeking $1 million (GBP550,000), reports AllHipHop.com.

Barbera's marketing director said they had permission to use 50 Cent in the ad because of the company's role in a contest held by a local radio station.
