Not too long after Beyoncé’s ‘Lemonade’ visual album premiered, the singer was sued by a director who claims Bey & co stole visuals from his short film.
Now, Beyoncé’s camp has responded to the lawsuit saying that there’s no way she copied because ‘Lemonade’ is about about a Black woman dealing with her relationship and the alleged original is about a depressed white man.
Beyonce just filed docs which call Matthew Fulks’ lawsuit bogus … because “Lemonade” and his 2014 short film “Palinoia” have completely different narratives.
In the docs obtained by TMZ, she says the differences couldn’t be clearer — “Lemonade” portrays “an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship.”
On the other hand, she says “Palinoia” is about a “white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship.”
Bey’s got a great legal team — hopefully they have enough to shut this down.
