"Temptation Island" dropouts Ytossie Patterson, 34, and Taheed Watson, 29, filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday against the producers of the Fox show, claiming they were defamed when it was revealed publicly that their relationship produced a child, a fact they allegedly hid from producers. Patterson and Watson claim in their legal papers that the producers knew from the start that they had a child (who is 2), but decided it would be better ratings-wise to reveal that info during an episode. The two are seeking unspecified punitive and compensatory damages from Fox Television Studios and Rocket Science Laboratories. A spokesperson at Rocket Science declined comment to the Associated Press on Wednesday, while Fox TV reportedly could not be reached.
