Nicci Gilbert Suing Over P-Valley


Back in 2011 Brownstone's singer Nicci Gilbert produced a musical called Soul Kittens Cabaret about the trials and tribulations of seven burlesque performers  [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Nicci is suing the producers of the hit Starz series P-Valley claiming they ripped off her idea...

According to The Jasmine Brand Nicci Gilbert claims she pitched her idea for Soul Kittens to Lionsgate in 2014 and they showed lots of interest, but she never heard from them again, and was shocked to see so many similarities to her show on P-Valley. 

Now Nicci is seeking actual and statutory damages, as well as a jury trial in her civil suit against Lionsgate.

Girl bye! and i didn't see her musical. I'm skeptical from jump because:
1-Burlesque dancers & Black Strippers are NOT the same
2- P-Valley is not a musical.

She will lose.

Nicci might have a lawsuit on her hands...if the content and premise are nearly identical, and if Lions gate can't prove that the idea originated from someone other than Nicci, then, yeah, she could definitely get paid.

I see promo for P-Valley all the time, but my list of ratchet tv is already too high...

P Valley is not even close to her ideas. It's about a sleazy, run down ghetto azz strip club in Mississippi run by a tranny who has a downlow rapper lover.
There's a lot of colorist, stereotypes and ratchet behavior along with domestic violence and shady back room real estate deals.
