Tyler Perry Sued For Plagiarism

Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Will Tyler Perry make a full-length feature for Madea Goes to Court? Well, not exactly. It looks as though Perry is being sued for allegedly ripping off the plot to Good Deeds.

Author Terri Donald said Perry’s film Good Deeds was based off of her book Bad Apples Can Be Good Fruit. She went as far as to say she sent a copy to Perry well before the film was even made.

Donald is seeking $225,000 in damages as well as an injunction to add a book credit in the opening and closing credits.

Good Deeds raked in $35 million at the box office.
