According to AllHipHop, the creator of the hit 90’s television series Martin starring Martin Lawrence is suing rapper Trinidad James because of his appearance, saying he is copying their character Jerome.

Trinidad James who just signed a deal for $2 Million with Def Jam Records is being sued for looking like Jerome? That may sound funny to you, or a bit unbelievable but if sources are correct it’s really happening.

The show’s creator Gerald Levin apparently had this to say when speaking on Trinidad James‘ character.

“Nobody’s that unattractive in real life. Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!! …Martin created that.”

Check out footage of Jerome and watch the video for Trinidad James‘ “All Gold Everything” after the break and you decide if it’s a direct copy of Martin‘s character.
