Mona Scott Young Sued For $50 Million For Love & Hip-Hop

Mona Scott Young is reportedly being sided for copyright infringement for stealing the idea that would eventually lead to “Love & Hip-Hop.”

Apparently, 8th Wonder Entertainment, Nicki Lum-Davis, Trisha Lum have taken exception to Scott’s franchise and have taken their grievances to court. They charge fraud, breach of contract and breach of confidence. They say that developed a show called “Hip-Hop Wives,” which included Tashera Simmons (DMX’s ex-wife), Chrissy Lampkin (Jim Jones’ fiance), Mashonda Tifere (ex-wife of Swizz Beatz), and Debbie Lorenzo, Irv Gotti’s ex-wife.

The plaintiffs charge they pitched the show to VH1. After the idea was rejected, the concept was retooled and packaged as “Love & Hip-Hip.”

The suit was filed on March 10.

Neither VH1 nor Scott-Young has commented on the legal move at press time.

    Long story short, blame Kobe Bryant for all of these hip-hop/basketball wives shows. It all started with him snitching on Shaq in Colorado, then Shaq’s wive developed the wives show so other women of ball players can spill on TV about how dirty their dudes be, and from there, the spin-offs started. Thanks Kobe.

        nah he actually said it in an interview… after the chick said kobe raped her or some shit… he said something to the effect of “i should have paid her like Shaq does”… then later shaq kicked the drunk ass freestyle and said that line “kobe, how my ass taste” that had people cracking up for months, shit was pure comedy
