*It’s been 11 years since the Jessica Alba film “Honey” came out, and a dancer is just now filing a lawsuit claiming the film was inspired by her life.

A woman named Honey Rockwell claims the filmmakers used her story as the basis for the project without permission. The film stars Alba as Honey Daniels, a dance teacher from the Bronx with dreams of dancing in music videos.
