Bling Empire Lawsuit
In late April, one of the show’s stars, Kelly Mi Li, accused executive producer Jeff Jenkins of stealing the concept of Bling Empire without giving her credit, per People. Li claimed in the lawsuit that she told Jenkins about her idea for a reality show about wealthy Asian Americans living in opulence in Los Angeles as early as 2018. (Jenkins did not comment on the report.)
Li also alleged that she and Jenkins worked closely together across a series of months to develop Bling Empire, “leading to the successful sale of the” show, per People. She claimed that Jenkins and his production company “took and exploited Plaintiff Li’s concept and materials, and entered into agreements creating obligations.” Li is therefore looking to be named, paid, and regarded as an executive producer for Bling Empire.
Bling Empire returns to Netflix on Wednesday, Oct. 5.
