Ex-Reality Star Talks Suicide After Nasty Trademark Battle With Tyler Perry

By  |  0 Comments

Well all good things…and not so good things, must come to an end. The nasty battle of Trademark rights between mega director, Tyler Perry and ex-reality TV star, Kim Kearney, a.k.a. “Poprah” is officially over, ending in the favor of Perry.

For those who don’t know the story, back in 2008 Kearny was working in production for a TV show with some of Tyler Perry’s colleagues.  She reached out to them to get the chance to pitch an idea for a Christian oriented TV show called, What Would Jesus Do to their accomplished friend. After a few emails, Kearney was sent confirmation that Perry had received her official pitch.

Four months later, without responding to Kearny, Tyler Perry tried to apply to gain trademark rights to the show title, What Would Jesus Do, but ran into a bind. Kim Kearney had already applied and obtained rights to the trademark for the title, blocking Perry’s application. That was far from the end of that story. Fast forward 6 years later to present time, and a ruling was finally made that Perry be awarded trademark rights on the agreement Perry’s attorneys made back on June 20 that Kearney had not developed a show for the title and the alleged website she created for it was not working.
