After Chris Rock’s five year old daughter, Lola asked him “Daddy, how come I don’t have good hair”, the perplexed comedian set out on a journey around to world to document what black men and woman go through for beautiful hair. The result of Rock’s exploration into the multi-million dollar African American hair industry is birthed in Roadside Attractions and HBO Films’ Good Hair. Co-written and produced by Rock the film will debut in theaters this Friday, October 9th.
Unfortunately, Rock is having a bad hair day. According to Access Hollywood, Regina Kimbell is suing rock for copyright infringement, unfair competition and fraud (yikes!), claiming the documentary is very similar to her film, “My Nappy Roots: A Journey Through Black Hair-itage.” Kimbell is suing in the amount of at least $5 Million.
