Sacha Baron Cohen
is facing more legal woes - comedian Pauly Shore
has alleged a scene in new movie Bruno
is taken from his film Adopted
In Bruno, Cohen's outlandish character collects an African baby out of a box on an airport baggage carousel before turning to the camera and saying, "Angelina
's got one, Madonna
's got one, now Bruno's got one," in a gag joking about stars who adopt foreign children.
The funnyman reportedly sent Madonna flowers and a sympathetic note during her recent battle to adopt Malawian Mercy James, to apologize for the skit.
And now director Shore alleges the scene bears a striking resemblance to the trailer and tagline for his new film, Adopted - a comedy about the public's obsession with celebrity babies.
According to the New York Daily News
, Shore has contacted his attorney and is preparing to take legal action against Cohen.
The Ali G
star has faced a variety of legal troubles over his comic creations in the past, including a string of lawsuits from members of the public who alleged they were duped into appearing in his 2006 film Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan
. Two of the cases were dismissed by the courts last year.
