Nick Cannon sued for $1.7 million over talent search app

Published

on

Nick Cannon has been hit with a $1.7 million (£1.4 million) lawsuit for allegedly stealing the idea for his N’credible mobile app .

Enrico Taylor has filed legal documents claiming he met Nick in 2015 to discuss his digital talent search company I Discover Stars. He alleged the comedian stopped communicating with him and months later, Nick launched N’credible, which helped him discover amateur talent for him to manage.

Taylor claims Nick stole his idea and his venture failed so now Taylor is having difficulty scoring funding for his enterprise, which he reportedly used to help to help music mogul Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams find talent for Cash Money Records in 2014.

In a video to TMZ.com, Taylor described their alleged meeting and how keen Nick was on the project and getting the funding in place, but soon afterwards, “He blocked all communication from me. Five months later, he goes on Instagram with something similar to what I had Birdman do… instead of Cash Money Records this time, it was to get on his TV show Wild ‘n Out.”

Wild ‘n Out is a sketch and improvisational comedy series created by Nick which has been running on and off since 2005.

“He literally ripped my idea so it looks like I’m ripping his,” Taylor alleged. “I never thought he would steal from me, so that hurt… I can’t sit back and allow this to happen so that’s why I’m suing him. I couldn’t get contact with him any other way. Now you have no choice, see me in court.”

Taylor is suing for damages of $1.75 million (£1.4 million), according to the site.

In January 2016, Nick posted an Instagram video promoting the project in which he said, “I’m getting a crazy response to casting Wild ‘n Out right now, we doing it real big so I need y’all to download that N’credible app, post a video, if you’re a comedian, a model or whatever it is…”

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump project is back, in a new location

Shia LaBeouf’s anti-Trump art installation has passersby read the text “He will not divide us” as part of an Internet livestream. Though clearly that’s a sentiment about the new president, it’s also something LaBeouf and his collaborators are saying about the project’s first venue.

The “participatory performance artwork” by LaBeouf and collaborators Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner launched outside New York’s Museum of the Moving Image on Inauguration Day, Jan. 20, but has since been shut down. According to LaBeouf’s site, the New York museum “abandoned the project” on Feb. 10, and the installation relocated to a wall outside the El Rey Theater in Albuquerque, N.M. on Feb. 20.

The Museum of the Moving Image says that it shut down the project, because it “created a serious and ongoing public safety hazard for the Museum, its visitors, staff, local residents and businesses.” It continued: “While the installation began constructively, it deteriorated markedly after one of the artists was arrested on the site of the installation and ultimately necessitated this action.”

The artist the museum is referring to? LaBeouf, who pulled the scarf off an unidentified 25-year-old man.

LaBeouf’s site explained the fallout with the New York museum this way: “From the outset, the museum failed to address our concerns about the misleading framing of our piece as a political rally, rather than as a participatory performance artwork resisting the normalisation (sic) of division ..It is our understanding that the museum bowed to political pressure in ceasing their involvement with our project … As of February 18, 2017, we are proud to be continuing HEWILLNOTDIVIDE.US at the El Rey Theater, Albuquerque.”
