Kanye jumped by Evel Knievel

The continuing misery of Kanye West: Kanye's clunking Evel Kanyevel visual pun in the video for Touch The Sky has landed him with a grumpy lawsuit from Evel Knievel, who is claiming breach of copyright:

Knievel has filed a suit in the US District Court, for "illegally using and tainting his image with vulgar, sexually and racially-charged content."

Kanye's co-opting of the Knievel image broke Evel's heart; ironically, it was the only part of Evel's body he hadn't broken for himself doing a job which seemed to revolve around trying to get himself injured.
