Sheeraz Hasan Warns Charli D’Amelio to Back Off with Lawsuit
Charli D'Amelio, one of TikTok's biggest names, has picked up a feud with media mogul Sheeraz Hasan, who claims he can make anyone famous.
The TikToker's legal team launched a lawsuit, demanding that Hasan remove her face from the promotional video he shared for his masterclass.
The Beef Thus Far
As you might have already guessed, D'Amelio was recently featured in an endorsement video meant to promote Fame By Sheeraz Masterclass. However, following the release of the promotional material, the trendy TikToker's team of lawyers warned the media kingpin against featuring her.
Check out the promotional video below:
D'Amelio had a couple of frames in the promotional video that featured some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry, including Logan Paul, Paris Hilton, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Lopez, Zendaya, and more.
According to the cease and desist letter given to Hasan, D'Amelio affirmed that her inclusion in his video "is not approved and will not be approved."
Following the fiasco, Sheeraz reached out to TMZ to issue a warning directly to the TikToker. He said,
Don't poke the media beast we control the paparazzi and media that promotes you and gives you FAME. That's why you endorsed FAME by Sheeraz.
Hasan Claims She'll Always Need Fame
In another interaction with The Holywood Fix, Hasan explained that no matter what the up-and-coming star decides to do in her career, she would always need Fame.
Almost as if he was attempting to intimidate the TikToker, he claimed that she would need the Fame cameras on her every time she stepped out looking for exposure. He added,
I'm going to tell you one thing right here. If you want your show to be a hit on Hulu, you're going to need Fame.
Without Fame, without the machine that generated audience exposure, drama, and excitement, Hasan claimed that she wouldn't get the ratings she wanted.
Driving the point home, he warned D'Amelio to call her lawyers at her earliest to retract her legal letter if she wanted to have a hit show on her hands.
Hasan Suggests Learning from the Kardashians
He even brought up the beauty mogul Kim Kardashian when he suggested D'Amelio learn from her actions. He recalled when he helped Kardashian find fame.
Admittedly, Kardashian embraced the media, the paparazzi, and the entire machine. As a result, the woman who was once Hilton's assistant was now a billionaire and one of the most famous people in the world. Towards the end, Hasan said,
I think you should pick up the phone to your lawyer and say, 'Listen I think we should back off because I want a hit TV show. If I want a hit TV show, I need fame.' God bless.
For those not in the loop, the TikToker is setting the stage for her new TV show on Hulu called The D'Amelio Show. The premise of the reality show is that the D'Amelios are facing new challenges and opportunities with their overnight stardom.
Alongside Charli, the show will feature Marc D'Amelio, Dixie D'Amelio, and Heidi D'Amelio.
