Proof is in the
As we reported in June, indie filmmaker Matthew Fulks filed a lawsuit against Beyoncé, claiming she totally ripped off his 2014 short film Palinoia to make her popular visual album Lemonade.

In his lawsuit, Fulks says several visual elements from Lemonade were stolen from his film, including images of "graffiti and persons with heads down," "red persons with eyes obscured," "parking garage," "black and white eyes," "the grass scene," and "side-lit ominous figures."
Well Queen B is calling BS!
According to legal docs, the Crazy In Love singer says both projects have completely different narratives.
While Lemonade tells the story of "an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship," Palinoia is about a "white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship."
Lemonade is sweet, but it could also be VERY sour!
