Former N.W.A. Manager Files $110M Lawsuit Over Straight Outta Compton

Submitted by on October 30, 2015 – 11:58 pmNo Comment

Former N.W.A. manager Gerald Heller is suing NBCUniversal, director F. Gary Gray, Legendary Pictures, the screenwriters of Straight Outta Compton as well as Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, the estate of Eazy-E and anyone else that had anything to do with the film.

In his lawsuit, Heller alleges breach of contract, copyright infringement and defamation, and is seeking $110 million in damages. “The Film is littered with false statements that harm the reputation of Plaintiff and aim to ridicule and lower him in the opinion of the community and to deter third persons from associating or dealing with him,” says Heller’s complaint. Heller is portrayed by Paul Giamatti in the movie.

Straight Outta Compton has taken in $200 million worldwide at the box office since its August release.
