OWN’s hit show “Love Is___” is a glimpse into the long-standing yet eventful relationship between television producers and directors Mara Brock-Akil and her husband Salim Akil.

The first season was a window into the beginning of their relationship in the 90’s as Mara came up in Hollywood as a writer. The show is supposed to be based on different stages of their relationship.

Well, a new lawsuit filed against Salim Akil in Los Angeles refutes this claim. And it squarely puts Salim in the middle of the #MeToo movement.

    It was something about this dude that seemed shady to me. So this is believable.

    I’m not surprised because the character who he’s based on is verbally abusive. I really don’t care for the show because they are putting a toxic relationship on a pedestal. I do love Black Lightning though.

    So I did my Googles and this woman was married when she began this affair with Salim. I don’t want to be that girl, but it just seems like this was a casting couch situation that didn’t turn out the way she wanted. Salim never left Mara and ole girl never got put on. So now she’s suing and she’s yelling abuse when their s*xual relationship was always the violent bondage/dominating type.

    I try to give women the benefit of the doubt because the business is full of pigs, but BDSM relationships do exist. And both of these people were married when they were doing this. This reads like this Amber person is being vindictive that things did not go her way.

    Okay after reading it, I agree this sounds like a BDSM affair. Had Salim put her on like he promised, she wouldn’t be suing. Anyway, I do feel bad for Mara. She worships this man so much that she refuses to see the red flags.

    This is why women can never date down. When we do, it always comes back to bite us in the butt.

    None of this surprises me. I always got a weird vibe from this man.
