Allegedly a filmmaker is sueing the “I ain’t sorry!” for stealing his storyline for a movie he did about a year ago to appease her album.
Beyonce ranting about Jay Z‘s alleged affair wasn’t her idea at all… according to the filmmaker who says Beyonce’s visual album copies a movie he made more than a year before “Lemonade” dropped.
Matthew Fulks is the man that suing Beyonce and her record label all at once, saying much of the “Lemonade” trailer completely rips off his 2014 short film, “Palinoia.” In the suit, he says his project also depicted a “tumultuous relationship.”
He says his beef is really over 39 seconds of the trailer, which have a slew of images similar to his movie. Specifically … characters in front of graffiti-covered walls, red tinted images, dimly lit parking garages and closeup shots of “overgrown grass.” There are more .
Mathew says he knows a Senior VP at Columbia Music, Bey’s label, saw “Palinoia” sometime in 2015 — and he thinks the exec stole his ideas for “Lemonade” … which started shooting at the end of 2015.
He wants Bey and the label to fork over a cut of the royalties made from the album.
