According to E!Online, Tyler Perry has taken Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown 19, under his wing.
A rep for the Houston family confirms that Bobbi Kristina Brown is working with the prolific TV and film producer.
Radar first reported that Bobbi Kristina, whose previous TV experience is limited to interviews and Being Bobby Brown, would play the daughter of one of the stylists at the salon run by Tasha Smith‘s Angela.
No word yet on when she’ll first appear, but there will be plenty of opportunities—the first of 35 new episodes that TBS has ordered premieres in July.
The aptly titled For Better or Worse is based on the premise of Perry’s 2007 film Why Did I Get Married? and 2010’s Why Did I Get Married Too?
According to TMZ, Tyler Perry and Jamie Foxx are being sued by a prisoner over a movie ” for $1 million each by a prisoner — who claims the duo jacked his idea for a groan-worthy new comedy … starring Foxx, Perry, and Martin Lawrence … all dressed as women.
The movie is called “Skank Robbers” — A comedy about two lady bank robbers … with Lawrence’s Sheneneh character from “Martin,” Foxx’s Wanda from “In Living Color,” and according to reports … Tyler Perry‘s Madea … from every bad movie you’ve seen. The project is reportedly in development.
Shamont Lyle Sapp — who, coincidentally, says he’s serving time in Oklahoma for 10 bank robberies — he’s filed a lawsuit, claiming he gave Foxx and Perry the idea for the project … and they cut him out of the action.
According to the docs, Shamont had the idea to unite the three characters in one film — but his version wasn’t a comedy about bank robbers … it was a drama about a mental hospital.
The lawsuit encapsulates Sapp’s idea — “A male white mental patient takes Madea hostage … He deals with phone calls from the negotiators, as Madea actually pleads for her life in a very sad tear-jerking way … Her pleas are to be very sad. No jokes at all.”
Sounds like a blast. Shamont is also suing Fox Broadcasting and producer David Zuckerman for a total of $4 million in damages.
Foxx and Martin did a “Skank Robbers” sketch for the BET Awards in 2009 … which aired a month before Sapp even pitched his idea to Perry.
