Recently the latest “stolen idea” is the highly popular show, Empire – And you won’t believe who’s accusing it…
Believe it or not, FOX’s hit show is apparently too similar to a “known ghetto player” whose claiming that the show was stolen from a documentary that he made about his own life.
Thus, Ron Newt, a.k.a. Prince Diamond is suing Empire’s Terrence Howard and co-creator Lee Daniels and others. Newt claims that he had a meeting some time ago with Howard at the Four Seasons hotel, where they discussed his documentary “Bigger Than Big” which centers on the life of Newt’s past as a “gangster, pimp and drug dealer,” TMZ reports.
Newt says Howard connected to his documentary so much, that he wanted to play “the known ghetto player” in a possible feature.
In fact, TMZ reported Newt’s “evidence” that Empire is a splitting-image of “Bigger Than Big”:
— “Empire” … 4 drug dealers killed. “Bigger than Big” script: 4 drug dealers were killed.
— “Empire” … Lucious shot his long-time friend. BTB: Prince shoots his friend.
— “Empire” has a round table. BTB: Round table!
— “Empire” … Cookie goes to jail for drugs. BTB: China Doll goes to jail for drugs.
— “Empire” … Cookie is released from prison. BTB: China Doll released from the big house.
— “Empire” … Cookie with hat. BTB: China Doll with hat.
And get this: “Bigger Than Big” isn’t the only thing in Newt’s list of accomplishments. He says he also signed a multi-million dollar deal with Michael Jackson and Death Row Records in back 1989.
Since when was the King of Pop working with Death Row Records?
Anyway…if you hadn’t lost your composure to laughter yet…in his lawsuit against Empire, Newt wants a billion dollars!
All jokes aside, do you think there may be a chance that Newt is telling the truth? Or is he just delusional?
