Will & Jada Have Some Explaining To Do…

Will and Jada have some explaining to do….

Via AHH:

(AllHipHop News) A dispute over a failed movie involving rapper/actor Will Smith and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith, is at the heart of a new legal situation between the power couple and a financier for the feature.

Legal papers filed Friday (Feb. 5) in L.A. County Superior Court, note claims by the Smiths that David Grasso is threatening to sue them over what he believes to be allegations the pair “guaranteed” a return on his investment in the film, titled The Human Contract.

Written in 2007 and directed by Pinkett-Smith, the feature centers on a relationship between a successful but unhappy businessman (Jason Clarke) and a mysterious, free-spirited stranger (Paz Vega) who tempts him into exploring reckless love.

In addition to Pinkett-Smith, Idris Elba and Ted Danson are featured in the movie, which was executive produced by Will Smith and marked his spouse’s directorial debut. The Smiths disputed the Grasso’s claims, saying they are not to blame for the failure of The Human Contract and “made no such representations” regarding the film.

In light of the drama making no money and going straight to DVD last year, the couple confessed, “it is unlikely that it will ever make a profit.”

Although the Smiths are not interested in suing the Grasso for money, TMZ.com reports the pair wants a judge to declare that they are not liable for the money lost by the investor.

A representative for the couple addressed the issue while telling the site that “although we normally shun this type of controversy, we felt compelled to respond to the baseless threats and absurd allegations put forth by Mr. Grasso’s counsel.”

    I wasn’t there so I don’t know what actually went down, but no one can guarantee anything. It’s a roll of the dice just like with any big investment.

    “Written in 2007 and directed by Pinkett-Smith, the feature centers on a relationship between a successful but unhappy businessman (Jason Clarke) and a mysterious, free-spirited stranger (Paz Vega) who tempts him into exploring reckless love.” = perfect recipe for a wack ass movie

    Each time a director or movie star let his wife direct or co-wrote a movie , it turns to a fucking disaster..CASE & POINT : GUY RICHIE & MADONNA 2002 “SWEPT AWAY” total box office : $553,102…WORLD WIDE, definetly one of the worst movies ever made….. I hope you learned your lesson Will

      @Lio – The investor should’ve remembered that Madonna/Guy fiasco as well and perhaps he wouldn’t be out of the loot he’s now suing for. I mean DAMN, I’m no investment guru, but I know that this would NOT be the way to go to get a return on my investment… “DIRECTORIAL DEBUT” = EPIC FAIL.

    Um.. I’m wondering about the actually agreement. See just think… I have money…. you have to had something to give in exchange for my money. I’m up in the air on this because I think Will and JADA ARe some pretty clean cut people.
