The homeless didn’t appreciate Pras putting all their business out in the street.
According to AllHipHop.com, three homeless people are suing former Fugee Pras Michel over his 2007 documentary, Skid Row. Wesley Bolden, Terrell Brown and Michelle Hassan filed suit in Los Angeles on Friday, claiming that they never agreed to appear in the film.
In Skid Row, Pras pretends to be homeless and has an undercover film crew follow him around a 50-block section in down town L.A., which the documentary is named for. He was able to gain the trust of the homeless living there. The film, spanning a 9-day period, depicts what it’s like to live on the streets.
Even though the three live in tents in Skid Row, they still expected some respect for their space. The trio wanted privacy in their attempts to protect their families from the nature of the situation.
Terry, Wesley and Michelle are seeking profits from Skid Row and an official declaration stating that the use of their image was not cleared for the documentary.
