Yikes! Dwayn Johnson, AKA The Rock, and Mark Wahlberg are currently fighting a lawsuit over claims that they stole the idea for their hit American football themed HBO comedy Ballers.
And now things have gone from bad to worse! On Tuesday the pair were hit with a whopping $200 million demand, after the people suing them finally put a cash value on their damages! Eeeek!
Back in December TMZ reported that Everette Silas and Sherri Littleton filed a lawsuit claiming that there were 27 similarities between Ballers and a show they created back in 2007 called Off Season.
However the duo who are executive producers on the show will not be caving in easily, as HBO has named the lawsuit “frivolous”.
Wowza! We hope this is all sorted out soon!
