NEW YORK, New York (X17online) - John Devenanzio of MTVâ€™s The Real World Key West has filed a lawsuit against the producers of HBOâ€™s Entourage for their use of his nickname, â€œJohnny Bananas.â€
The lawsuit faults HBO, parent company Time Warner, and Entourage creator Doug Ellin for their "unwarranted, unauthorized, and unfavorable mention of plaintiff's name and personality, and allusions to plaintiff's physical and mental character."
The Real World star requests that the network be banned from distributing any Entourage episode containing the character â€œJohnny Bananasâ€ and seeks compensatory and punitive damages.
Devenanzio is being represented by Stephanie Ovadia, who also represented Lindsay Lohan in her infamous E-Trade lawsuit.
