Nelson told the court that following the split, the singer-songwriter and his ex-girlfriend remained dating, and both took to social media with damaging allegations against him.

Nelson said in court docs that Bridgers pointed more than 500,000 of her followers toward his ex’s social media page, where she accused him of misdeeds including fraud, theft, hate crimes and hacking, the outlet reported.

Nelson, who owns the downtown Los Angeles recording studio Sound Space, accused Bridgers of defamation, false light, intentional infliction of emotional distress and intentional interference with prospective economic relations, Radar reported, citing court docs. 

According to the outlet, Nelson told the court initially met Bridgers through a drummer she collaborated with, Marshall Vore.

Nelson identified his ex-girlfriend in court docs as Emily Bannon, Radar reported, and that he, Bannon and Bridgers engaged in a three-way relationship and on September 2, 2019, celebrated it with a ‘f***iversary.’

Nelson said he and Bannon split shortly thereafter, and she continued to date Bridgers, Radar reported, citing court docs.

Nelson claimed Bridgers put up ‘false and misleading statements’ about her on her Instagram in October 2020.

The producer said that the allegations ranged from Nelson fatally beating a ‘young Latinx’ man, hitting a man with a baseball bat and hacking into the accounts of women online, according to the outlet.

In his suit, Nelson said Bridgers ‘maliciously and intentionally’ posted the messages in question in an effort ‘to destroy’ his name.
