Lightbulb Believe it, or not!...True or False? Thread.

Gossip, word of mouth, heard it through the grapevine, from a reliable source. Whatever the case might be, post it, and let's figure out if it's True or False.

MJ's weird behavior has been the cause of mouth blabbering back & forth throughout the years.

Gossip:

It is said that he wanted to create a movie studio called "Dreamworks". His Neverland Ranch's logo, shows a boy sitting on a moon, too much like Spielberg's Dreamworks studio Logo. MJ's mom says that he came up with the "Dreamworks" idea and that it was stolen. MJ came up with the Neverland Ranch Logo, some 6 years before the Dreamworks's logo.

Is this true or false?, Was MJ's Idea really stolen?

Default Bruce Lee's Believe or not!

Have another one for y'all!

Gossip:

Bruce Lee was the victim of discrimination, and his theories and ideas were stolen back in the 70's.

Quote:
Bruce Lee's claims

In her memoirs, Bruce Lee's widow, Linda Lee Cadwell, asserts that Lee actually created the concept for the series, which was then stolen by Warner Bros.[2] In a December 8, 1971 television interview on The Pierre Berton Show, Bruce Lee himself makes reference to both Warner Brothers and Paramount wanting him to do a TV series. After Pierre Berton comments, "there's a pretty good chance that you'll get a TV series in the States called "The Warrior", in it, where you use what, the Martial Arts in Western setting?" Lee responds, "that was the original idea, ...both of them (Warner and Paramount), I think, they want me to be in a modernized type of a thing, and they think that "The Western" type of thing is out. Whereas I want to do the Western. Because, you see, how else can you justify all of the punching and kicking and violence, except in the period of the west?" Later in the interview, Berton asks Lee about "the problems that you face as a Chinese hero in an American series. Have people come up in the industry and said 'well, we don't know how the audience are going to take a non-American'"?. Lee responds "Well, such question has been raised, in fact, it is being discussed. That is why "The Warrior" is probably not going to be on." Lee adds, "They think that business wise it is a risk. I don't blame them. If the situation were reversed, and an American star were to come to Hong Kong, and I was the man with the money, I would have my own concerns as to whether the acceptance would be there."[3] What Lee called "The Warrior" and "Kung Fu" shared the idea of a lead character in a TV series who performs Martial Arts in a Western setting. Based on Lee's comments to Berton, he was talking to both Warner Brothers and Paramount about "The Warrior" as late as December 1971.
What do you guys think?
