Tyler Perry Sued Over 'The Goodness Of Jesus'

According to reports from TMZ: "A suit, filed by the personal representative of deceased gospel singer/songwriter Bertha James, claims Perry lifted an entire verse from a song James wrote in 1950: "When I Think of the Goodness of Jesus."

The suit claims Perry used the verse in a scene from Madea Goes To Jail, "incorporating the entire chorus in a monologue delivered by 'Madea' referencing her deliverance from a jail sentence in the court scene with 'Judge Mabeline.'"

Bertha's estate, which is also suing Lionsgate Entertainment, wants unspecified damages for copyright infringement. GTHOH!
