If you read our recap of Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp, you know we thought it was terrible on every level. Well, it turns out Kyle Massey is even more steamed than the public, claiming it was his idea and he was screwed over by Lifetime!
Kyle, his brother Chris Massey and their mother Angela have sued the producers, charging that the Masseys came up with the concept and started shooting a series that involved themselves and Bristol, only to be cut out and uncompensated.
Bristol was not named as a defendant in the 31-page lawsuit.
Kyle Massey and Bristol Palin filming "their" reality show last year.
"It is unfortunate that after months of trying to resolve this matter the professional way, we were left with no other course of action than taking legal action to protect ourselves," Angela Massey said in a statement announcing the legal claim.
"If you read the entire complaint, and particularly pages 8-11, you will see how we came up with and created the show, registered the show and did all the leg work to bring this idea to TV and to the defendants, who stole our concept."
Originally titled Helping Hands, the show was to feature Bristol Palin, who was allegedly dating Kyle Massey, moving in together with her son Tripp.
