Chris Rock is Being Sued Over Good Hair
Funnyman Chris Rock got stumbled in a lawsuit for his upcoming documentary. 44-year-old Rock is being sued by a filmmaker who claimed that the documentary, Good Hair, is a copycat of her film, My Nappy Roots.
On Monday, Regina Kimbell sued Rock and several film companies in federal court in Los Angeles. She is suing the voice of ‘Marty the Zebra’ on animation movie Madagascar for at least $5 million and trying to block the release of the hilarious documentary.
In the lawsuit, it was stated that My Nappy Roots traces the business and cultural history of black hair care and has otherwise only been shown at colleges and film festivals since its completion in 2006. Kimbell said she screened her film for the comedian in 2007. She also claimed that several of elements of her film have been copied.
No comment from Chris Rock’s side about the lawsuit. The movie itself is still scheduled to be released in certain cities on Friday and nationwide on Oct. 23. Let’s just wait for the story’s development then!
