Chris Rock Is Getting The “Good Hair” Sued Off Him

Chris Rock is the target of a new lawsuit that accuses him of stealing the concept for the movie “Good Hair” from Regina Kimbell.

Via TMZ:

Chris Rock‘s documentary about African-American hairstyles is as phony as the extensions on Paris Hilton’s head, according to a new lawsuit.

Regina Kimbell says she showed Chris her 2005 documentary, “My Nappy Roots,” on the set of his TV series, “Everybody Hates Chris,” back in 2007. Then, according to the suit filed in U.S. District Court in downtown L.A., he stole the idea for his documentary, “Good Hair,” which will open on Friday.

Kimbell’s film features celebs who discuss styles like the conk, the Afro, the Jheri curl and dreadlocks. Rock’s film also uses celebs to look at the efforts black women use to get that European look.

Kimbel wants no less than $5 mil in damages.

    If the allegation is true, SHAME ON YOU CHRIS.

    I was never going to pay money to see this stupid documentary anyway, it should be on television not in the movie theaters.

    This will probably turn out just like The whole Tyler Perry situation did. If the broad didn’t get her documentary copy writed and the whole nine yards then the broad aint getting 5 cents from Chris.

    LOL @ the irony indeed!

    Crazy!

    No less than five milliion?

    Seriously though, how ‘original’ IS this idea. Hmmm, I can do a documentary on Black Women’s hair………that’s not that specific; it’s quite general. Unless there’s key things she showed him that are present in his film………and even so, without documentation of her having shown him this or that it’s her word against his…i.e. up in the air.

    *slurps koolaid*

    Heck, I think I’ma sue Chris too. I thought about this subject before too.

    *throws shade/leaves room*

    Chris Rock is pretty smart im sure he’s got all his bases covered. And as close to 5 million dollars that she’ll get is if she sucks dick up til she hiccups.

    i hope she wins. i’m tired of these negro coons making money off of rascist stereotypes just cause they’re black. our hair is as good or better than others, and requires a LOT less washing/conditioning/blow drying/curling, etc., that white women go through EVERY single day of their lives. We have the best hair. Don’t have to touch it up but once a month.

    Yep I can see him stealing, he did that on the Bernie Mack show.. when he stole bernies jokes….hahahahaha

    Janice, i think UR the main reason chris did this film, it’s not about him making money off a stereotype it is about highlighting the stereotypes that WE have face because of OUR hair and been made to feel WE are inferior because of that. Take the time and ACTUAL read and VIEW the clips on youtube before u get ur panties knotted <– Ignorance IS NOT Bliss!

  13. oh well, chris rock is damn funny. i like his corny jokes and stuffs ~:~
