Kendall Jenner Sued For $1.8 Million By Italian Fashion Company, Allegedly Skipped Photoshoot
Kendall Jenner is facing a $1.8 million lawsuit for allegedly skipping a photoshoot.
Italian fashion brand Liu Jo is suing the supermodel for breach of contract in the U.S. District Court in New York, according to Insider.
It claims in court documents filed Tuesday (Aug. 3) that Kendall Jenner, 25, agreed to model for two photoshoots, but only did one. The first photoshoot was for the spring and summer 2020 line, and the second was for the fall and winter campaign later that year.
Liu Jo alleges it “has suffered considerable financial harm and damages” to the tune of at least $1.8 million “as a result of Ms. Jenner’s breach.”
It adds that it paid her $1.35 million for the photoshoots she was supposed to do.
The lawsuit continues,
“Ms. Jenner has breached the Agreement by failing to meet her obligations under the Agreement and no payments have, as yet, been refunded to Liu Jo by Ms. Jenner.”
The legal matter comes more than a year after she settled an unrelated issue in court. In May of last year, she agreed to pay $90,000 for her role in promoting the fraudulent Fyre Festival on her Instagram. She was sued by Attorney Gregory Messer in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
According to court documents, she, along with other influencers, was paid $250,000 to post an Instagram ad in January of 2017. In her now-deleted post, she also announced her “G.O.O.D Music Family” would be making an appearance – leading fans to believe that her soon-to-be former brother-in-law, Kanye West, would be performing.
The court documents read:
“This conduct demonstrates a clear lack of good faith on Jenner’s part.”
The plaintiff ultimately settled with Jenner for $90,000.
