Mad Black Woman Loses 'Mad Black Woman' Case

12/9/2008 9:00 PM PST
The woman who accused Tyler Perry of ripping off "Diary of a Mad Black Woman" just became the very thing she was suing over, after a court decided she had no case against the star.

A Texas jury decided Donna West didn't have enough evidence to support her claim that the 2005 hit "Diary" was a rip-off of her script for "Fantasy of a Black Woman" -- which West wrote and performed in 1991.

West is expected to appeal the decision -- Perry is expected to win that too.
