Ron Newt, a friend family of the Jackson family (yeah, Michael Jackson’s family) is suing popular TV show, Empire, it’s lead actor, Terrence Howard, Lee Daniels and others, claiming they stole his life story.
Newt, who is suing for $1billion (yes, billion) claims he is a ‘known ghetto player’ and that he met with Terrence at the Four Seasons hotel a while back and they discussed Ron’s documentary, “Bigger than Big.”
According to him, when Empire premiered in January, the similarities between the show and his documentary were too obvious to ignore, hence his suing.
The similarities according to him are:
“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.
“Emp” … Cookie is released from prison. BTB: China Doll released from the big house.
“Emp” … Cookie with hat. BTB: China Doll with hat.
