Beyonce‘s adamant she didn’t rip off “Lemonade” from a film about a depressed white guy, and she says the proof is right there in her visual album … about a proud black woman.
Beyonce just filed docs which call Matthew Fulks’ lawsuit bogus … because “Lemonade” and his 2014 short film “Palinoia” have completely different narratives.
In the docs obtained by TMZ, she says the differences couldn’t be clearer — “Lemonade” portrays “an African-American woman who progresses through stages of suspicion, denial, anger and, ultimately, reconciliation in her relationship.”
On the other hand, she says “Palinoia” is about a “white man who is distressed in the wake of a failed relationship.”
We broke the story … Fulks sued Bey and her record label, saying much of her “Lemonade” trailer copied chunks of his film.
