Angelina Jolie is being sued for the second time in a month.
This time, James J. Braddock, a Croatian journalist, is accusing Angelina Jolie, 36, of stealing the story behind her directorial debut, In the Land of Blood and Honey.
In legal documents obtained by RadarOnline, James J. Braddock claims that an article he wrote and published in 2007 is the basis for the film, which Angelina Jolie wrote and directed.
James J. Braddock gives examples of the similarities between his work and Angelina Jolie’s film in the lawsuit.
The lawsuit states that: “The Subject Work’s main female character is subject to continuous abuse and rape by soldiers and officers in the camp.”
“In addition to being raped continuously by soldiers and officers, she is forced to become a servant at the camp headquarters, a duty assumed by very few of the captives.”
James J. Braddock is demanding that a court awards him damages.
“The Motion Picture’s main female character is also subject to continuous rape by soldiers and officers in the camp and subsequently becomes a servant at camp headquarters.”
The drama revolves around a Muslim woman named Aija who falls in love with Serbian Daniijel.
In the unlikely love story, which opens in American theatres on December 23, Daniijel inadvertently becomes Aija’s jailer when the Bosnians are captured by the Serbs.
James J. Braddock isn’t the only person taking legal action against Angelina Jolie.
Angelina Jolie and partner Brad Pitt are also being sued by a former nanny.
The couple fired 45-year-old Ana Charlotiaux for allegedly taking too much sick leave.
Ana Charlotiaux worked on Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s French estate, Chateau Miraval, from 2008-2010 and is demanding fair compensation for dismissal.
