Usually peaceful, Luther Campbell is out for blood after reading an article on Yahoo! Sports. A contributing writer, Nevin Shapiro, wrote an article about the University of Miami's basketball team. In the article, he writes negative things about the former 2 Live Crew frontman.

In his article, Nevin Shapiro claims Luther Campbell purchased cars and other things for the basketball players. Aside from cars, Shapiro also claims Luke arranged prostitutes for the young men. Shapiro, himself is serving time for a Ponzi scheme. However, he said Campbell was the first uncle to take care of the players.

The Miami Herald reported Luther Campbell is seeking $15,000 in damages. This comes after Nevin Shapiro claimed Campbell purchased gifts for 72 University of Miami players. Campbell did this when recruiting and with the current players over a span of eight years. In the lawsuit, Campbell claims the statements are false in “engaging in the same type and category of illegal and immoral behaviors relative to college-age athletes.”
