Jackson Sued Over Dance Crew Show
American Idol judge Randy Jackson is at the centre of a new lawsuit over allegations the idea for his U.S. talent contest AMERICA'S BEST DANCE CREW was stolen.
Dwight McGhee filed papers in Los Angeles County Superior Court last week (begs25Jan10) suing Jackson and the show's broadcaster MTV for allegedly copying his original idea.
MCGhee claims he pitched the format of a dancing show, titled International Breakerz League, to MTV executives in 2004 only for the network to allegedly use his concept four years later without his involvement.
He is suing Jackson and MTV for $2 million (£1.25 million), reports TMZ.com.
