Just a few days after officially announcing that he plans on suing the producers of Spring Breakers for allegedly using his likeness for the character of Alien, Riff Raff has taken to his Twitter and Instagram to post what he claims is proof that director/writer Harmony Korine personally asked him to be in the film.
The alleged proof comes in the form of an iPhone screenshot of an email he claims he received from Korine (whose e-mail is apparently firstname.lastname@example.org) in February of last year. The e-mail reads, simply:
yo riff raff
what's up. i wanna put you in a movie. you down?
Riff Raff responded about ten days later, and offered his cell number for Korine to contact him.
He also posted the screenshot on his Twitter numerous times.

Earlier this week, Riff Raff told TMZ that he planned on suing the producers of the film for $10 million because, in his words: "It's like if I have a front yard. And you're planting soil and you're planting trees and building peaches and houses and selling parking lots on my property ... then I deserve to be compensated for some portion of that money." Yeah, that's exactly what we were thinking too.
He added that he has nothing against James Franco, who plays the character who looks a shitload like him, and that he wants him to be successful. Speaking to MTV, Riff Raff explained: "Once I saw James Franco playing me in a movie — first of all, that's just phenomenal...it ain't about James Franco. It's about me in 'Spring Breakers.' It's about my bank account. Will I get 10 million or will I get 5 million. Who knows? If I end up with only 5 million, then so be it. Whatever."
When asked by MTV what he wants to do with said money, Riff Raff added, "I love the movie...great movie. Go see it. Go buy it, buy it, buy it, buy it, buy it, buy it, buy it. Guess what? I want that 2.7 million — if you can get it up to 3.5 by November, I'm trying to get this new lemon-lime Rolls-Royce. C'mon, y'all! Why you acting suspicious?"
