Kenya Press – The creator of “Black-ish” and other subsidiaries – he asks the judge to intervene to force his sister to keep his distance … because he claims that she is taking advantage of his name and threatening his children.
Hugely successful writer, director, actor and television producer filed a restraining order against him Colette Press – his own sister, who studies professionally and also writes books – due to Kenya’s fears that she will harm his children … one way or another.
In documents, obtained by TMZ, Kenya documents years of alleged incidents in which it claimed to have seized his name and their familial relationship to tie itself to opportunities in Hollywood. But after unsuccessful attempts to launch her own ventures – either because the meetings did not yield anywhere, or because Kenya refused to help her – he claims now worried that Colette will take out her anger at him at his six children.
Because of that, he is now asking the judge to enforce a court-ordered shield – even if it is temporary – so she must distance himself from him and his family and stop contact.
Kenya says he’s been in a rocky relationship with his sister for years, all because he claims she insists on taking advantage of the family name and using it for her own prospects … not to mention his alleged claim to take care of her and her extended family with criticism.
Kenya describes several alleged episodes in which he says Colette held meetings with executives of large studios to present her TV show ideas … all under what Kenya calls false claims, using his name and fake support to calm and secure face time. . In some cases, Kenya says things have already started for her … all because some executives felt pressure to help Colette due to projects pending with him.
There’s also this … Kenya claims that Colette recently sent him a legal request letter, saying he should fund her $ 4 million movie project (based on her account). He also claims that she told him if he didn’t do what she says … she’ll show up to the audience.
Now, he’s got it and wants her to walk away from her. It looks like he hit her with the punch.
