    A Porn Star Stole My Name

    Texas woman claims old teen pal hijacked her moniker for stage name

    JULY 3--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 on the link)

    The complaint adds that Madden 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."

    Wimberly claims that Madden's actions have caused her emotional distress and mental anguish, for which she is seeking monetary damages. Wimberly also wants a permanent injunction barring Madden and Vivid from continuing the use of her name. In a TSG interview, Madden acknowledged appropriating Wimberly's name because she thought it was "really cool." Madden, who said that her first name is actually Laura, denied ever being friends with Wimberly and said that she did not marry in high school. She added that her porn career ended in 2005 after she appeared in 13 films.

    Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!

    I wonder if the porn star shared any of the money she made with her.

    In other news, I'm scanning political names to see if any are similar enough to mine that I can sue for "extreme embarrassment and unsubstantiated association with politicians".

    Yeah, right, whatever.
