There’s a lil local drama going on around Atlanta now that Bounce TV has filed a lawsuit against Bobbcat films.
For those of you out of the loop, Bounce is run by Ryan Glover (Tameka Raymond’s first husband) and Bobbcat Films, which is owned by Roger Bobb, formerly Tyler Perry’s right hand man at TP Studios.
The issue stems from BounceTV’s allegations that Bobbcat Films reneged on a show featuring David and Tamala Mann (of Meet The Browns), deciding instead to take his project over to BET instead.
Now the two local ‘celebs’ are in a legal battle over breach of contract.

David and Tamela Mann, aka Mr. Brown & Cora from Tyler Perry’s ‘Meet The Browns,’ are my favorite of the three couples who cover this year’s ‘Black Love’ issue and I feel they deserve the top spot in this post after maintaining a 25 year marriage.
The cute couple revealed how they maintain the passion in their relationship, stating:
Stay in love because when you’re in love, it covers a multitude of fault. Our relationship wasn’t based on good sex or having a lot of money. It was based on just straight friendship. That’s what has kept us.” –David Mann
“I pray and ask God to keep my heart and my eyes burning only for David Mann. I speak his name in my prayers, because I want the desire to stay, so when he touches me, I get chills.” –Tamela Mann
The other two couples covering the Ebony’s February 2014 ‘Black Love edition are Lala Vasquez and her hubby Carmelo Anthony and Mariah Carey and her hubby Nick Cannon.

Acting couple David an Tamela Mann were spotted all boo’d up during V-103′s For Sisters Only event last weekend.
The pair are Tyler Perry’s “go-to” couple for just about every movie, play, and television show Perry has produced, and it’s always a pleasure to see the cute couple out and about around Atlanta, where many of TP’s productions are filmed.
David, known for his role as “Deacon Leroy Brown” and Tamela, his wife of 23 years, who plays Mr. Brown’s daughter Cora, have worked together professionally for over two decades and they love being able to work side-by-side.
In keeping with that trend, the couple has partnered with Roger Bobb, former Executive Vice President of Tyler Perry Studios who abruptly left his position with TP to start his own production company (BobbCat Films), for a new cooking show to be filmed in the Bahamas.
