tyler perry zps247936aa Stray Shots: Tyler Perry Wins Trademark Battle For What Would Jesus Do

- Let us pray: What Would Jesus Do is now property of Tyler Perry. Now, raise your hand if you mentally stretched out his last name like Hurricane Chris expressing his fondness Halle Berry.

The United State Patent and Trademark Office sided with the media mogul in the trademark battle for the popular phrase last week, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

He won the battle over ‘I Want to Work for Diddy’ flop (listen, we all fall short of the glory of God) Kimberly “Poprah” Kearney, who registered the trademark in 2008, several months before Perry did. Perry registered the phrase in the category of “entertainment services,” with the idea of producing “live concerts, a TV program and motion pictures” in relation to the trademark.

Well isn’t this special. After treating himself to a sausage fest earlier in the week, Diddy stepped out hand-in-hand with concubine / employee Cassie for New York Yankees icon Derek Jeter’s 40th Birthday Bash last night.

Also spotted on the scene: Timbaland and wife Monique Mosley. The two seem to have reconciled after Monique filed for divorce back in 2013. Their outing comes as no surprise if you keep up with the hit making producer on social media.

During his ‘E! True Hollywood Story’ episode, Timbaland confused that he was initially attracted to Monique because he believed she resembled longtime collaborator / friend Aaliyah, whom he secretly was in love with at one point.
