The ongoing sexual harassment lawsuit against horrorcore hip-hop act Insane Clown Posse just got a lot more disgusting, and it involves a glass sex toy reportedly owned by Kid Rock. Attorneys for the group’s former publicist, Andrea Pellegrini, have subpoenaed the rocker to produce the item as court evidence, Detroit Free Press reports.
The subpoena states that “Dirty Dan” Diamond, a former employee of ICP’s label Psychopathic Records, gave the item to Kid Rock after a failed attempt at passing it along to Pellegrini. According to a press release from the publicist’s attorneys, Diamond admitted under oath to this disturbing gesture on Friday during his deposition in Las Vegas; he reportedly tried to give Pellegrini the glass phallus after learning she was single. Kid Rock (real name Robert James Ritchie) has 14 days to produce the item in court; both the singer and his manager, Lee Trink, were unavailable for comment for the Free Press as of Tuesday evening.
Pellegrini, a three-year employee with Psychopathic Records, filed the suit in September 2013, alleging “wrongful termination, harassment, retaliation and infliction of emotional distress” against ICP (Joseph “Violent J” Bruce and Joseph “Shaggy 2 Dope” Utsler), Psychopathic Records and the group’s manager, William Dale. (She also described her time at the 2012 Gathering of the Juggalos festival as “a living hell.”) According to the Free Press, an attorney for ICP denied the allegations last year.
In other Juggalo-related news: Last month, a Detroit federal judge dimissed ICP’s lawsuit that hoped to erase an FBI report describing their fans, the Juggalos, as a “gang.” But the group is planning to appeal the decision, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Tool members Adam Jones and Danny Carey blame a lawsuit for the delay of their next album.
The band is being sued by a former associate who claims he never got credited when the band used his artwork for a project. Tool then got sued by an insurance company that they hired to help them deal with the first lawsuit.
The insurance company is suing over technicalities for the case.
Tool have since counter-sued the company and the case should be going to trial in January.
When it comes to music, Carey hopes to have the new album recorded by the end of the year. He said the band has enough ideas for a full length album and are close to finishing a new song that is about 10 minutes long.
