William James, a local screenwriter from Gary, Indiana, sues Perry for stealing his idea for Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor. Hoping to reach Perry, James gives a copy of his screenplay to an associate of Oprah Winfrey. James:
The plot is similar to Lovers Kill, written in 2009. The lawsuit is light on details … it just says both films center on a married couple … the wife is tempted by another man, and the affair ruins the marriage.
