Why is Chris Rock being sued over the movie, “Good Hair?” A starving filmmaker, Regina Kimbell claims Chris Rock saw her script and used it. Doesn’t this remind you of when Tyler Perry was accused of doing the same thing over his movie, “A Diary of a Mad Black Woman?” This won’t be the last we here of similar cases like this one.
Good hair is a documentary that reveals the process African Americans experience while changing their hair, which Regina Kimbell claims is very similar to her own film, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage.” She said her proof that Chris Rock stole her idea is when she presented her work to the Doug Miller, Executive Producer of “Good Hair.” She claims that Mr. Miller promised to sign a non-disclosure agreement with respect to the film, but refused to do so later. She admits to being shocked when she eventually learned that Chris Rock was coming out with his new movie, “Good Hair.” She saw the similarities between her own film, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage” and “Good Hair.”
Regina Kimbell is suing Chris Rock and the Executive Producer, Doug Miller of Good Hair for copyright infringement, fraud, including deceit among her complaints. Will she get her $5 million dollars?
