Another Day Another Lawsuit

- By Bossip Staff

A former assistant to the Wayans Brothers is suing them for unspecified damages, saying they snatched his “You know you’re a Golddigger …” book and published it as their own.

Check the details under the hood.


Jared Edwards who was an assistant to the Wayans since 1995 states he wrote jokes about women who seek wealth and status through romance. He says the brothers initially rejected his book, but in May published their own: “101 Ways to Know You’re a Golddigger.”

The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Manhattan on Thursday against Keenen Ivory Wayans, Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans and St. Martin’s Press. No statements have been released from either the Wayans or St. Martin’s Press.

    I don’t know about all of this but Marlon Wayans makes some super gay comments on his twitter.

  • whiteberry

    everybody had that idea. what a crab

  • Divine

    That picture hurt my feelings. I had a crush on Marlon, until now….

  • WhatAWorld

    Marlon TOO MUCH Pink.I used to have the biggest crush on dude because he seemed like the only one that wasn’t gay but not so much now.

  • London Girl

    @ Divine

    lol Why does the “picture hurt my feelings”? Is it the pink, or the way he’s standing? Have to say his stance does look a bit suspect but I just assumed the camera caught him on the wrong foot! lol Still luv ‘im! (Hope he isn’t gay)

  • Really Tho

    I’m suing Shawn Wayans for not being funny.

  • Sylmarvelous

    That’s stupid! It probably did happen but for some reason, they don’t seem that petty to me…

  • Maygan

    LOL Repeat Offenders in Hollyweird.They were also accused of “Borrowing” the script of White Chicks from a dude who sued them as well. Lets see how this one pans out.

  • Niveas

    MARLON IS NOT GAY. HE IS MARRIED. KEENAN SURE AIN’T GAY, HE STILL HITTIN’ HALF OF HOLLYWOOD’S NEW STARLETTS AND SHAWN GOT A STEADY FEMALE. THEY AIN’T GAY. HOPEFULLY HIS ASSISTANT AIN’T LYING. I KNOW EVERYBODY USED TO CONTRIBUTE JOKES AND MAYBE CUZ JARED LEFT ON BAD TERMS, THEY MIGHTA SAID FORGET THE NEGRO, WHICH COULD BE THE CASE, BUT WOULD ALSO BE WRONG. WHO KNOWS.

    Marlon Wayan was Twitter fighting some dude on Twitter yesterday!

  • kapreeshus™

    This is silly.
    It’s not novel. It’s a book of jokes. They are comedians. And we have all seen Marlon’s twitter page–he writes his own jokes.
