Beyonce is clapping back at a lawsuit that claims she stole the concept for her LEMONADE visual album. Meanwhile, Ciara is blaming Future for causing her to lose out on $500,000. Get all the deets inside….
Beyonce is fighting back against a lawsuit that says she stole the concept for her LEMONADE visual album.
A man named Matthew Fulks filed a suit against Bey and her record label claiming the LEMONADE concept was ripped off from his 2014 short film titled Palinoia.
Well, Mrs. Carter filed legal documents to point out the differences in LEMONADE and his film. And it boiled down to one being about a black woman and the other about a white man.
The documents point out that LEMONADE is about "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship." The paperwork then describes "Palinoia” being about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."
Two different narratives. Two different stories. Do you think Matthew’s suit will stick in court?
Meanwhile, Bey is currently overseas making stops on her Formation World Tour. She's set to hit the stage at Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark tomorrow (July 24th).

Ciara and her baby daddy Future are still going at it.
The now married singer, who has been sharing flicks from her fairytale wedding to Russell Wilson on social media, is making claims that the Atlanta rapper caused her to lose out on $500,000. How? Well, she claims those slanderous tweets he posted about her scared away an international cosmetics brand. She believes the company would have paid her $500K, this according to new legal documents.
According to TMZ, CiCi claims Future’s remarks undermined her "positive reputation" and tarnished her image as a "controlling, dishonest, malicious, unreasonable, evil, conniving" and bad parent.
As you know, CiCi pulled the trigger on a defamation lawsuit in February after he dragged her on Twitter, calling her a “b*tch” and other negative comments. Last month, he dropped his lawsuit against her after he was granted joint custody of their son Future Wilburn.
