Tyler Perry

Tyler Perry is being sued by an author claiming he stole her plotline, Reuters reports.

Terri Donald, who writes under the pseudonym TLO Red'ness, filed a lawsuit in Philadelphia claiming that Perry based his 2012 film Good Deeds on her 2007 book, "Bad Apples Can Be Good Fruit." Donald writes that she sent Perry's production company a copy of her book before filming began. She's seeking $225,000 in damages, as well as a credit on the film.

To date, Good Deeds, which starred Perry, has grossed $35 million at the worldwide box office.
