Proof is in the pudding lemonade!

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!

Aaron Carter Sued For $50K For Not Paying Former Website Developer

Filed under: Legal MattersAaron CarterTwitter

Aaron Carter faces more money woes.

UPDATE 3:25 P.M. EST: John Cantu's attorney, Sam Park, revealed that the website developer has NOT hit Aaron Carter with a lawsuit, but is actually currently weighing his options.

As for now, his webdesign is up for sale or license… if the terms are agreeable to him. Additionally, both parties have been in contact, but no word on how their situation is being resolved.


Yikes. Aaron Carter's money troubles don't seem to be going away anytime soon.

You might remember the 28-year-old opened up about being "over $100k" in debt on the reality TV show Life Or Debt, and now, the singer has been hit with a new lawsuit.

Video: Watch Aaron's EXCLUSIVE Performance Of Fool's Gold!

According to TMZ, John Cantu was hired by Aaron to design his music marketing page, but was refused a paycheck back in June. Despite spending months working on it, the musician fired back saying John was only an intern.

Now, the "intern" is demanding $50K from the Fool's Gold artist for having to maintain the site for several months, citing he never learned anything from Nick Carter's younger bro, and can't be considered an intern.

What's not made clear is what sort of agreement the two had when John started working on the page.

The situation has only gotten uglier from there, as John crashed Aaron's site, even instructing fans to "follow a genius" and included his own Twitter handle.

The daytime star has had enough of the BS and wants the company to pay! He said:

"Enough is enough, it's time for them to own up… As a member of the media, I have a deep respect for the First Amendment. But it does not protect these people who knowingly print lies for money, particularly lies about my wife."

According to his lawyer L. Lin Wood, the company deserves to go under for what they do to society!

Snapchat – it's not for everyone!

The popular photo sharing app was sent a class action lawsuit on Thursday for allegedly exposing minors to "sexually offensive" material!

According to the suit, which was filed by celeb attorney Mark Geragos on behalf of a 14-year-old boy and his mother in the Central District of California, the app's Snapchat Discover feature frequently suggests sexually explicit content without a proper warning.

The complaint specifically points out a BuzzFeed feature that was promoted on the app earlier this month, which was titled "23 Pictures That Are Too Real If You've Ever Had Sex With a Penis."
