Kyle Massey Sues Over Bristol Palin Reality Show

Claims idea was stolen from him and his brother.

Published June 20, 2012

Bristol Palin's reality show hasn't even aired yet and the drama has already started. 

Former Disney star Kyle Massey and his brother Christopher Massey filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles federal court today, reports TMZ, claiming they had created the reality show with Palin (who they met on Dancing with the Stars) only to be cut from the deal at the last minute.

According to the Masseys, a producer named David Mackenzie took over the project, which the Masseys had called Bristol-ology 101, repackaged it as the current Bristol Palin: Life's a Tripp and left the Masseys out of the deal. 

The brothers are demanding $500,000 each, what they claim they were promised for starring in the show, plus an unspecified amount for creating it.
