(TMZ) - Ludacris says his record label "Disturbing tha Peace" has a reputation to uphold, so he's slapping a Texas couple with a lawsuit accusing them of jacking his company's name.
Luda, real name Chris Bridges, filed legal docs this month claiming Demetri and Donna Evans-Brown are illegally using the phrase "Disturb The Peace" for their audio equipment biz and musical recordings.
But Luda says he's owned the trademark for "Disturbing tha Peace" since 2003, it's also the title of his 2005 album, and the couple's use of a similar name will confuse customers and ruin his primo rep.
Luda is asking a judge to force the Browns to stop using the trademark ASAP, and he's suing for damages, plus attorneys' fees.
