An old lady told me that social media is the devil, I laughed but she might be right, because 140 characters can get you caught up!
New Edition singer Johnny Gill waged a ferociously bitter Twitter war against one of his former record producers last week -- calling her "f**king nuts" -- and now she's taking his ass to court. We suggest he put on his red dress and put on his high heels, because when she gets through with him he will be singing like a girl.
According to the lawsuit, filed Thursday in L.A. County Superior Court, DeWitt claims she had nothing to do with the leak -- but Gill attacked her on Twitter anyway ... calling her "deranged" and "f**kng nuts."
DeWitt also claims Gill tweeted defamatory statements about her business ... saying her record company sucks and that they are a sham and that she only liked the leaked recording because she had a "hard on" for one of the song's producers.
DeWitt claims Gill has damaged her reputation -- so she's suing for unspecified damages ... AND she wants the judge to force Gill to stop trashing her on Twitter.
