NEW YORK (AP) – A former assistant to the Wayans Brothers has sued the comedy team for unspecified damages, saying they snatched his “You know you’re a Golddigger …” book and published it as their own.
The lawsuit said Edwards worked as an assistant for a decade beginning in 1995.
It said in 2005 he wrote jokes about women who seek wealth and status through romance.
He said the brothers rejected his book, but in May published their own: “101 Ways to Know You’re a Golddigger.’
St. Martin’s Press did not immediately return a call for comment.
