Martin Lawrence Allegedly Suing Trinidad James for Portrayal of Jerome Rome Character

It is rumored that Martin Lawrence is not happy with Trinidad James and is considering suing him for stealing the imagery of his character Jerome.

It looks like the $2 million record deal that Trinidad James was allegedly paid may not be enough to secure his future from the legal threat that lies ahead.

Rumors are swarming that Martin Lawrence is not pleased with Trinidad James’ portrayal of his character Jerome Rome. Lawrence’s famed sitcom Martin featured Jerome — a loud talking, gold teeth wearing, afro rocking, word slurring character — that was portrayed by Lawrence over the years. Many fans of Martin believe Trinidad James is a reincarnation of Jerome Rome.

Gerald Levin, a person who allegedly has close ties to Martin was quoted saying “Nobody’s that unattractive in real life. Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!! …Martin created that.” The initial source for the news claims Levin is the creator of the show; however, reputable source IMDb lists Martin Lawrence, John Bowman, and Topper Carew as the show’s creators.

  8. OMG, Martin Lawrence I love your sitcoms and movies but for real bro, you need to look at this from another viewpoint. Your character (Jerome Rome) was famous and Trinidad saw him as a role model. Instead of "suing" him, why not just do a legal contract with him and get paid off his appearance (image) of your character. Two million lawsuit vs a lifetime $$$ contract. THINK BIG!
