Washington, Mar 13 (ANI): Hollywood actress Jennifer Lopez and Jane Fonda have found themselves in the middle of a law suit, with a woman accusing the makers of their film 'Monster-in-Law' of infringing her copyright.
Sheri Gilbert from North Carolina claims that the flick is based exactly on a script she wrote in 1998, about her struggles with her mother-in-law, reports Contactmusic.
Thus she has accused the filmmakers of stealing her work.
According to the lawsuit filed in American District Court in Raleigh, Gilbert and her husband Willie are seeking a share of the near 155 million dollars the comedy made worldwide.
However, according to The News and Observer of Raleigh, North Carolina, an attorney representing movie studio Warner Bros. and 33 other defendants, including Lopez and Fonda, has dismissed claims that the similarities are more than just a coincidence. (ANI)
