John Rich Sues Contestant

John Rich is suing former Nashville Star contestant Jared Ashley, claiming that he was defamed by the singer.

Jared was a finalist on the 2006 season of Nashville Star while John served as one of the show's celebrity judges. In the suit, John says that Jared entered his private Nashville club, The Spot, on March 13 without permission and had to be removed by security. John also contends that Jared falsely defamed him when he stated during a radio interview that John hit him that evening. Jared counters that John's claims are not true.
