50 Cent Is Being Sued For “Stealing” His Hit Show, POWER
While you might be getting used to Empire being sued every other week, someone else is suing Power.
The hit show, which stars Omari Hardwick in a lead role and shows on Starz, 50 Cent’s station, is being claimed to have been stolen.
A certain Larry Johnson is suing 50 Cent for not only taking his published idea but making a hit show out of it.
So basically, this is what he claimed happened; In 2005, Larry said he sent a manuscript of his titled “Tribulation Of A Ghetto Kid” to a certain Nikki Turner, who at the time worked for 50 Cent’s G-Unit books.
Larry eventually went ahead to publish his book through some other publisher but he strongly believes Nikki shared the idea of the story/manuscript with 50 Cent.
And when the show premiered its first season last year, Larry was sure this was his story being used.
Larry says the show and his book have two many things in common to have been a coincidence.
Apparently, his main character has a “goatee” like the type James St Patrick aka Ghost has in the show and, what’s more, the writer says he uses the name Ghost as his pen name.
Other things his idea and Power have in common include, a best friend who is exactly like Tommy and a main character who owns a big nightclub.
Larry is suing the Rapper for $200 million.
50 cent recently filed for bankruptcy, Larry either didn’t hear that or he doesn’t believe it like the rest of us.
