Jordan Scott Accuses Stephenie Meyer of Plagiarizing Breaking Dawn

by at . Comments

While Twilight was a hit, and the buzz over New Moon is off the charts, controversy over the final two films in the Twilight Saga continues to grow.

By now, most fans are familiar with the shady decision to replace Rachelle Lefevre in Eclipse with Bryce Dallas Howard. Go read more about it and let your opinion be heard.

Now, an author is taking Twilight creator Stephenie Meyer to court for allegedly stealing ideas for Breaking Dawn.

As first reported by TMZ, Jordan Scott sent a cease and desist letter to the book's publisher, stating the fourth installment in the franchise contains a "striking and substantial similarity" to Scott's book, "The Nocturne."

Scott says her novel was published in 2006; though, strangely, we can't find it on Amazon.com.

She claims that numerous scenes in the books are eerily similar, such as (Breaking Dawn spoiler alert!)...

  • Both contain a post-wedding sex scene;
  • Both depict a scene about a woman who's sick because she's carrying a child with "evil powers;"
  • Both focus on the death of the main character's wife.

In response, Meyer's rep wrote to TMZ: "The claim that 'Breaking Dawn' by Stephenie Meyer somehow infringes on an alleged book by someone named Jordan Scott is completely without merit. Neither Stephenie Meyer nor her representatives had any knowledge of this writer or her supposed book prior to this claim."

Man. It was a lot more fun when the only breaking news about these movies/books involved the latest Robert Pattinson pictures.

And Scott got what she wanted, because we are discussing her accusations. It's so sad what I just have to say some ugly things about her, cause she deserves it. She's a BITCH who wants her place in the famous world. There are a lot of people like her out there. We all know it (I hope so). And the money she will pay for trial process is gonna be worth of it, trust me.
It's all so sad. That tells us about how 'popular' and 'interesting' are her books. If she has no money and publicity she is obviously not good at her job.
Somebody should give her a lesson. By kicking her ass.(:

Anybody ever heard of Vassar Clements? How about the song by Charlie Daniels, The Devil Went Down To Georgia? Vassar wrote the music for it 20+ years prior to Charlie stealing it and becoming a hit. Don't be so quick to judge, you might shake your own faith when you do!

Omg I don't understand why all these things get publicity. It's so obvious that Scott or whatever is lieing just to get money and publicity! It is so stupid! Look at all the facts! Stephanie myer started her book before and had written eclipse before. And obviously with a wedding comes a honeymoon! Who the hell does he think he is? Is he going to CLAIM being the inventor of honeymoons? GET REAL! Go stephanie!! Whoot whoot, i love your books, your a genius (:

Jordan Spencer Scott is the daughter of Lauren Scott, a known con artist. Lauren Scott has been involved with raising money for fake corporations, and pocketing the money. Both she and her mother are named in the following complaint issued by the Supreme Court of the State of California: http://www.corp.ca.gov/ENF/pdf...
This is certainly another scam invented by her mother. They both live in Jamul, near San Diego California.

Wow, lots of hostility against Jordan Scott here! I've never read The Nocturn but I have read all the books in the Twilight series and liked them (until the movie which stared the giant fan-base of people who never read it and then started calling it the new Harry Potter, that's where I drew the line). The New York Post had an excerpt from both books and it seemed Meyer had just dumbed-down Scott's book (again, never read it). So, let's all have some chamomile and relax, we'll read The Nocturn and meet back here in a month, okay?
