The producers claimed that they (Scott-Young, Vh1 and New Pop Culture Productions) used “Hip Hop Wives” as a template for “Love and Hip Hop.” They sued the network and producers for damages and an injunction against them from continuing to air “Love & Hip Hop.”
Then last week, Scott-Young and the network fired back at the legal battle. They admit that the female producers did meet with associates of the network back in 2009 and they were close to working out a deal but they then decided not to move forward with the show.
Scott-Young and the network deny the allegations that their show is a rip off of “Hip Hop Wives” and they explain that they independently came up with the idea for “Love & Hip Hip” by themselves.
They are demanding the the entire lawsuit be dismissed and the producers be awarded NOTHING.
