Word on the street has it that Martin Lawrence is not a big fan of rapper Trinidad James.
we’ve been cracking jokes and saying that TJ is the real life version of one of Martin’s most well know characters- “Jerome”. And it seems Martin has taken notice and put TJ on notice that he has taken notice. (did you follow that?)
“Jerome is known as the gold teeth wearing, afro-puff rocking, word-slurring, over-the-top character Martin created and portrayed over the years. And if you are a fan of Trinidad James, you know the similarities are uncanny. And, due to the similarities, there are reports that Martin Lawrence is thinking of suing. ”
The show’s creator, Gerald Levin, stated:
“Nobody’s that unattractive in real life. Gold chains, gold rings, and rotten teeth, that’s Jerome!! …Martin created that.”
Now we can’t say for sure that NO ONE is that ugly in real life, because we’ve seen quite a few that clearly have him beat, but they do look like father and son. We’re just sayin’.
