Richard Pryor's widow is suing a T-shirt company for allegedly printing pictures of the funnyman on merchandise without permission.

Jennifer Lee Pryor has filed a lawsuit accusing bosses at Fret Shirt of illegally using her husband's image on a line of clothing, and demanding they stop production of the items.

She is also demanding around $5 million (£3.1 million) in damages, according to Tmz.com.
