According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Colette Barris claims her famous brother breached a contract they agreed on, basically saying they wouldn’t disparage each other in Hollywood. Now, it should be noted that the Barris siblings have major public beef, and it seems things are boiling over again.
The new case was filed in Los Angeles County Courts, with Colette claiming Kenya is trashing her all over town.
Kenya Barris’ Sister Claims He Is Publicly Calling Her Names
“In or around June 2022, Kenya stated to a third party that (Colette) was “a 70-year-old, no talent, hack“ and number two had not earned the “right to be a show creator“ but instead “wanted to go to the front of the line,” the document reads.
She continued, “The parties in pertinent part agreed ‘not to communicate any disparaging remarks about each other, or about any matters that led to this agreement.'”
Colette doesn’t reveal what “agreement” the brother and sister duo signed, but we are guessing it is connected to a restraining order filed by Kenya.
As you know, Kenya is a very famous television show producer who created shows like ‘Black-ish’ and worked on ‘Coming 2 America.’
‘Black-ish’ Creator Claims His Sister Is Using His Name To Get Hollywood Deals
On December 28, 2020, Barris filed a restraining order against his own sister — claiming she was threatening his kids and trying to cash in on his name. According to reports, the filing included allegations that Colette was piggybacking on Kenya’s name to get opportunities in Hollywood. Specifically, she was using his name to book meetings to get her own projects off of the ground.
At the time, Kenya said he believed his sister could take out her anger on him and his six children after refusing to help with her ventures.
In one instance, he claimed she procured meetings with a big-shot studio executive to pitch her own TV show ideas. Of course, he said she was using his name to get the meetings. Plus, he says a few times it worked, because executives helped her due to pending projects with him.
Shockingly, he says she sent him a legal letter saying he HAS to fund a movie project of hers that costs $4 million, based on her novel. In the local documents, he said threatened to go public with some sort of information, so he filed the restraining order.
In the end, it’s unclear what type of agreement was struck to drop the restraining order.
In the new case, Colette says “Kenya’s breach of contract denied Colette the benefit of their bargain and was a substantial factor and causing her harm.”
Again, we are guessing the deal struck between the siblings (to drop the restraining order case) included a pact that they wouldn’t talk badly against each other. Cleary, Colette believes her famous brother is still talking smack about her around town.
The case is ongoing.
