Jamie Foxx and Tyler Perry Sued by Bank Robber

A bank robber from Oklahoma, Shamont Lyle Sapp, has filed a lawsuit against Jamie Foxx and Tyler Perry. The lawsuit claims that the two men stole his idea for a movie that is called, ‘The Skank Robbers.’ The movie is a comedy, will star Foxx and Perry along with Martin Lawrence as a trio of bank robbers who are ladies. The three bank robbers will be previously played characters by the three men. The Lawrence character will be Sheneneh from ‘Martin,’ Foxx’s Wanda from ‘In Living Color,’ and Perry’s Madea.

Sapp is serving jail time right now for 10 bank robberies but he decided to file a lawsuit against Foxx and Perry because he gave the two men the idea for the movie and was then cut out of the project.


The idea from Sapp, according to court documents, had three characters set in a mental hospital as part of a drama. “A male white mental patient takes Madea hostage … He deals with phone calls from the negotiators, as Madea actually pleads for her life in a very sad tear-jerking way … Her pleas are to be very sad. No jokes at all.”
