Brook Kerr's son files lawsuit against his parents
High School Musical star Chris Warren has now filed a lawsuit against PASSIONS actress Brook Kerr and Christopher Warren Sr., claiming they established a trust for him back in 2001 for all the money he made as a minor -- and have been secretly dipping into the kitty big time.

According to the lawsuit, Chris paid into the account for years, but when he decided to make a withdrawal back in 2011 -- as a 21-year-old -- his parents refused to grant him access.

When pressed, Chris claims his parents admitted they had blown through hundreds of thousands of dollars of his money on their own personal expenses ... but refused to say how much was left in the account.

The Shit My Dad Says Guy Gets Another Sitcom, But Where Are All the Women Writers?

Laura Beck writes: " Laura Beck

Justin Halpern is a lucky guy. His "Shit My Dad Says" Twitter scored him a sitcom deal about three months after he began the account. Unfortunately, after airing 18 episodes*, CBS pulled the plug and the show died a quick death. But don't cry for Halpern; he's already written a book called I Suck at Girls (ugh) that was optioned three months before it was even released.

"I don't doubt that Halpern might be a swell guy, but his shows are indicative of the type of ideas that are often given initial opportunities (and second chances) in the TV industry. A white guy telling his story is agonizingly familiar territory, and yet it's awarded a rich pilot production commitment from a major studio. When I hear news like this, I can't help but think about all the challenging, unique, and better ideas that are passed over for the same old shit — and I bet a lot of them come from women."
