Spring Breakers Lawsuit: Riff Raff Suing Producers for $10 Million!
A certain celeb is hoping that he can get some movie producers to break the bank. Rapper and former MTV reality star Riff Raff says he's suing the producers of Spring Breakers for $8 to $10 million, according to TMZ.
Riff Raff apparently believes he was the basis for James Franco's character in the flick, Alien. There is certainly a striking resemblance between Alien and Riff Raff, with their cornrows and gold teeth, but we're not sure if that's enough for a lawsuit. After all, did Keith Richards get to sue for being the basis for Johnny Depp's character in Pirates of the Caribbean?
Spring Breakers — which also starred Selena Gomez, Vanessa, Hudgens, and Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson — was a sleeper hit earlier this year, grossing $31.7 million worldwide on a $5 million budget.
But perhaps we should let Riff Raff use his gift for metaphor to eloquently explain it all for us.
"It's like if I have a front yard," Riff says. "And you're planting soil, and you're planting trees and building peaches and houses and selling parking lots on my property ... then I deserve to be compensated for some portion of that money."
Uh, did you follow that? We didn't either, but we're suddenly hungry for peaches.
