Katy Perry Caught in a $2 Million Lawsuit
Pop icon Katy Perry finds herself in the middle of a $2 million lawsuit with a British hair care company. Perry had a two-year written contract agreement with “ghd (good hair day)” to promote the hair care product line starting in 2011 for $4.5 million.
According to Katy’s agent, the company who makes the product, Jemella Group, actually owes her $2 million based on an oral agreement to extend her contract. In their legal documents, Jemella Group actually refutes the claim that there was an oral agreement and did not renew Katy’s contract. Why? Well, they say that Ms. Perry is just not as popular in Europe as she used to be and feel it’s time to let her go.
Perry’s agent has been threatening to sue Jemella Group for the $2 million, so the company asked the court to block Perry and her team from filing a lawsuit.
Despite the company’s efforts, Perry’s rep insists they will pursue the case should Jemella not follow through on the alleged oral agreement, "Jemella's attempt to embarrass Ms. Perry by including defamatory statements about her in a public filing is shameful.”
In a statement to TMZ, Perry says, "They're backing out of the deal because of an ownership change, and just throwing shade to hide their bad faith."
Sounds a little sketch! Unfortunately, it’s hard to prove the existence of an oral agreement. We’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out!
