Clarence Clemons’ son is finally facing the consequences of using his dad’s name and likeness to sell weed and weed products without permission.
Last year Nick Clemons was sued by a family trust that controls the late E Street Band saxophonist's assets for launching “Big Man Blazed Baked Goods,” “Big Man” being Clemmons’ nickname as part of Bruce Springsteen’s band. He was ordered to stop but didn’t, and now he’s being held in contempt of court.
If he continues to sell his product, he will face fines of $250 a day. He also has to pay $7,000 in legal fees.
In an interview with "Billboard," Nick calls the suit “frivolous,” noting he actually “disregarded it.” Since he is part owner of the trust, he insists you “cannot sue yourself,” and is “not even considering” complying.
