The backlash towards the Tupac movie keeps growing.
Stars like Jada Pinkett Smith, 50 Cent, and John Singleton have spoken publicly on their issues with the “All Eyez On Me” movie. Now journalist Kevin Powell is suing the producers for alleging stealing his interview notes.
In case you don’t know, Powell was a writer back in the 1990’s for VIBE. He particularly wrote about the gangsta rap movement, Tupac’s civil rights influences, and the beef between Pac and Biggie.
TMZ reports the lawsuit accuses producer L.T. Hutton did an interview just this month, saying “he looked at “all of the interviews” of Tupac to make the movie.” In addition, Powell believes characters portrayed in the movie could have only been know by reading his personal notes.
Powell wants a piece of the profit the movie has generated and wants a judge to block the film from playing in theaters.
