The Wayans Brothers sued by their former assistant.

Not my beloved Wayans. I clutched my pearls while reading this story. According to eurweb.com:
Three of the Wayans Bros – Keenen, Shawn and Marlon – are being sued by their former assistant who alleges they stole his book idea and published it four years later as their own. In the lawsuit filed Thursday in Manhattan federal court, Jared Edwards of Los Angeles says he showed the brothers his book You know you're a Golddigger… in 2005, but they rejected it. But in May, the Wayans got a deal with St. Martin's Press to publish their own book: 101 Ways to Know You're a Golddigger. Edwards is suing the three brothers and St. Martin's Press for unspecified damages, according to the Associated Press.
I actually have this book and it's hilarious. Let me go pull it out....
