Rock's follow-up records became more rock-, country-, and blues-oriented, starting with 2001's Cocky.
But a clip from the video turned up on the Internet.
The lawsuit seeks to prevent sale of the video and asks for unspecified damages, alleging the woman suffered emotional distress.
When Rock opened for BDP one night, D-Nice invited an A&R representative from Jive Records to see him perform.

Robert James Ritchie (born January 17, 1971), known professionally as Kid Rock, is an American singer, rapper, songwriter, musician, record producer, and actor.
His 1998 album Devil Without a Cause sold 14 million copies worldwide. The RIAA certified him selling 23.5 million albums. Rock performed rap and hip hop with five releases between 19, including a reissue and an EP.
He chose his stage name while performing at these venues; club goers dubbed him "Kid Rock" after they had enjoyed watching "that white kid rock." Ritchie eventually ran away to Mt.
Clemens at 15 and stayed with his friend Chris Pouncy.
Once back in Detroit, he became friends with Uncle Kracker after battling his brother in a freestyle rapping competition. At the time Uncle Kracker had no clue how to work the turntables.
