Martin Lawrence Suing Trinidad James For $5 Million.. For Stealing “Jerome”

 

 

Various sources are reporting there is word Martin Lawrence isn’t a fan of “All Gold Everything” rapper Trinidad James. Due to the fact there are so many similarities between Atl’s rookie of the year artist and one of many Martin personality “Jerome”.

 

Jerome is known as the gold teeth wearing, afro-puff rocking, word-slurring, over-the-top character Martin created and portrayed over the years. And if you are a fan of Trinidad James, you know the similarities are uncanny. And, due to the similarities, there are reports that Martin Lawrence is thinking of suing.

Levin plans to sue Trinidad James for $5 Million after learning that the rapper recently signed a $2 million dollar deal with Def Jam.

The show’s creator, Gerald Levin, stated:

Quote:
“Nobody’s that unattractive in real life. Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!! …Martin created that.”

Martin Lawrence still got jokey-jokes..

 

Quote:

[singing] Uh-uh! Uh-uh-uh! I say Jerome’s in da house! I say Jerome’s in da hou-oo-ah-oo – In da house!

this is true( Martin-110 mill, eddie 86-90 mill), although he did just file for divorce.

But anyway, this is more of a matter of principle than money. Its just that usually, you sue for a large amount, knowing u wont get it.

I always figured Eddie was the richest comedian due to all his movies and stand up.

I refuse to believe that this is true...laugh.gif; If it is, then smh at Martin.

Fact is, art imitates life, so where and who did Martin steal "Jerome" from; he got some nerve.

So you know I'm not trolling

 

Black comedies in general arent funny, theyre littered with stereotypes, *******, and attempts at cheap laughs. The plots and themes are always the same across every show and theres never anything thats truly funny or of substance going on, and this show was the epitome of it before Tyler Perry came along. Not a single thing about this show is good to me, or him for that matter.

 

That word that is censorsed is a synonym for tomfoolery in regards to black people

Did Martin have jerome trademarked?

Martin isn't suing, the show's creator, Gerald Levin is.

 

And if this does make it to court, it won't hold up. Every other ***** in the hood has gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth laugh.gif.
