Filmmaker Tyler Perry Sued for New Film ‘Temptations’ For Allegedly Stealing Storyline
Tyler Perry seems to never be able to get a break. He’s always being targeted by a lawsuit but making the type of money he makes, will attract leeches and unfortunately a lot of lawsuits.
Apparently, a Gary, Indiana screenwriter says Perry stole his storyline from the movie: ‘Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor’. William James has filed a lawsuit on April 24 against the filmmaker for allegedly ‘stealing his idea from a screenplay he wrote in 2009 called “Lovers Kill.” James insists that Tyler Perry’s Temptation has the same plot and conclusion as his original piece’. He’s suing Tyler Perry Studios and Lions Gate Entertainment, claiming copyright infringement.
