Jennifer Lopez is being sued by a man who claims the idea for Lopez’s show, “World Of Dance,” was originally his.

Alvin Gray-El filed a lawsuit against Lopez, NBC and famed choreographer Debbie Allen this week, according to a report published Tuesday by The Blast.

Allen is included in the lawsuit but has no connection to “World Of Dance.”

Gray-El claims he came up with the idea that exactly matches the idea behind “World of Dance” and pitched his show in a letter to Allen back in 2009. He wanted to see if Allen would be interested in producing the show, according to documents obtained by The Blast.

Gray-El says that after he never heard back from Allen, he went ahead and had his show registered with the U.S. copyright office.

In 2017, Gray-El reached out to NBC about copyright infringement when he heard that “World Of Dance” was in production. He claims he never heard back.

Gray-El doesn’t explain how the idea for the show got from Allen to Lopez and NBC. The idea for “World Of Dance” was brought to Lopez by NBC, sources told TMZ.

Gray-El is asking for $5 million in actual damages and $1.5 million in punitive damages.
