Nick Cannon Sued For $1.7 Million For Allegedly Stealing Talent Search App
Nick Cannon is experiencing all sorts of trouble in the talent search industry.
Shortly after announcing his departure from America’s Got Talent, Nick Cannon has been hit with a $1.7 million lawsuit for allegedly stealing the idea for his N’credible app, a talent-searching app that he launched outside of the show. “I never thought he would steal from me, so that hurt,” Enrico Taylor, the man who filed the lawsuit, told TMZ.
Taylor claims the N’credible app has been a total bust. “It failed, that’s karma for you,” he says, “but no, I can’t sit back and allow this to happen.”
In fact, Taylor says that the failure of Cannon’s app has jeopardized his prospects of launching his own app. A potential investor allegedly told Taylor, “Well I seen Nick Cannon do something similar and it failed.”
Even though it seems Cannon was not able to turn his idea into a success story, Taylor still wants $1.7 million in damages from the famous TV personality. He also feels that a lawsuit is his only means of getting Cannon’s attention. “Couldn’t get into contact with him any other way,” he explains. “Now you have no choice. See me in court.”
