Former Disney Star Sues Bristol Palin's Reality Show
Former Disney star Kyle Massey claims he and his brother Christopher created a reality TV show specifically for Bristol Palin only to get cut out of the project at the last minute, according to a new lawsuit.
The Massey brothers met Bristol on "Dancing with the Stars" and developed the idea for a show.
According to the suit, a producer named David McKenzie hijacked the project, cut the Masseys out of the show and repackaged the program as "Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp" which is set to premiere tonight on Lifetime.
The Masseys are demanding $500k each to star in the show plus they want even more cash for coming up with the idea. The brothers also want a judge to shut down "Life's a Tripp" as soon possible.
