When you are winning people will see you and attempt to target you for your paper. My homie Mona Scott Young the executive producer has been accused of stealing the “Love & Hip Hop” concept. Nicki Lum-Davis and Trisha Lum of 8th Wonder Entertainment, are suing Mona’s production company Monami Entertainment for $50 million! The case cites VH1, MTV Networks and Viacom in the lawsuit, which was filed on March 10, 2014.
According to court documents obtained by TattleTailz.com, Mona’s is being sued for copyright infringement, fraud, and breach of contract, breach of confidence for the show’s concept.
According to 8th Wonder Entertainment, it had come up with a show to be called “Hip Hop Wives,” modeling the title after VH1′s popular “Basketball Wives” series. The cast would have included Tashera Simmons, Chrissy Lampkin, Mashonda Tifere and Irv Gotti’s ex-wife Debbie Lorenzo. Chrissy Lumpkin and Mashonda Tifere did join the cast of Mona’s “Love & Hip Hop”.

Neither Mona, Monami Entertainment nor the networks have commented on the lawsuit at this time.
