(Newser) – In what just might be the most bizarre set of open letters ever published, Kid Rock has claimed that he did not, in fact, ever receive a glass dildo from an Insane Clown Posse staffer, despite the fact that the aptly-named "Dirty Dan” Diamond says he gave the sex toy to the rocker. The story behind the strange series of events is about as classy as one would expect from ICP: Salon reports that last year, a former ICP employee named Andrea Pellegrini sued the group and its record label for sexual harassment, accusing Diamond of presenting her with what seemed to be a glass dildo, but which Diamond has testified is simply a "work of art." Diamond told Pellegrini she was going to need the dildo since she'd recently become single, she claims; he then followed that up with some decidedly lewd sexual comments. When Pellegrini turned down the dildo, Diamond said in a deposition, he gave it to Kid Rock.

Now, Rock is being subpoenaed to produce the dildo so it can be presented as evidence in the lawsuit, despite the fact that he says he's "never heard of, seen, or met any people involved in this case." In a pair of epic vulgar letters posted on his website yesterday, Rock took a stab at pretty much everyone, accusing Pellegrini’s "scumbag" lawyers of using his fame to get attention for the case, Diamond of being a liar, and Diamond's lawyers of being "assholes" who failed to clear up said lie. "I’ve never met your client, and had I met your client I’d certainly remember if he tried to give me a glass f---ing dildo," he writes. Pellegrini’s lawyer insist they’re just looking out for her. "If standing up for women’s civil rights makes you the scum of America, count me in," he tells the Detroit Free Press.

Americans are so retarded about sex and sexual undertones. We are like a five year old kid saying, "Look mama, I see a pee-pee!" Living in a puritanical society gets to be pretty tiring after awhile. With that said, I still love America and what it does offer. I just wish we weren't so brainwashed to fear and loath sex, and think it's "wrong" or "sinful". In Europe this suit wouldn't make it past the filing stage, nor would the woman even consider suing. Instead she would have "given it back, times 10!" to the dummy. Taking the dirtiness and tawdriness out of sex empowers women, and makes men act like men, not five year olds.

Open letters are a notorious way for people to attempt avoiding deposition. Typcially, they're not certified, they're not validated, they're not notarized. Bob "Kid" Rock will tell another story under oath... "Oh, I forgot I got interviewed by these guys and don't remember what they gave me". Ex-Ms America Elizabeth Ward Gracen published an open letter during the Lewinsky investigation stating she had slept with Bill Clinton in the back of a limousine while Hillary Clinton made a phone call outside fifty yards away.

Kid Rock is just selfish. He likes the dildo too much to remove it.
