Chris Rock Responds to Lawsuit

Source: has obtained exclusive court papers from the Central District Of California (Western Division) where Rock defends himself against Regina Kimbell whose own documentary Nappy Roots covers the history of black hair.

In his declaration, Rock admits that he did meet with Kimbell for a private screening of her documentary at Paramount for research purposes for his own movie.

But he denies her claim that she showed him the documentary because somebody from his team told her: “I think we can help you”.

The comedian claims that he first got the idea for his ‘docu-comedy’ when he was playing a comedy gig in Atlanta 17 years ago.

Regina Kimbell is trying to block the public release of Good Hair on October 9, 2009, which Rock claims would damage both his professional and personal reputation.

He denies the plaintiff’s claim of plagiarism and thievery and wishes the court to clear his name in connection with these accusations in her lawsuit.

Here's Rock's full declaration
