Katy Perry is facing a lawsuit against a British hair care company, who says the pop star didn’t keep her word.
TMZ reports that Katy Perry signed a two-year deal with Jemella Group to promote ‘Good Hair Day’ products for $4.5 million since 2011 but is now trying to get out of the deal after Katy’s agent claimed the company still owes her an additional $2 million based on an oral agreement to extend her contract.
Jemella Group insists there was never an oral agreement and just wants Perry’s deal to be over with. According to the documents, they decided not to renew Perry’s contract because “market research shows Europeans just aren’t that into her anymore.”
Perry’s agent was hell-bent on getting Katy’s money from the company that she told them they’d sue, but Jemella filed first and asked the court to block Katy’s team from filing a lawsuit.
Katy’s rep tells TMZ: “Jemella’s attempt to embarrass Ms. Perry by including defamatory statements about her in a public filing is shameful.They’re backing out of the deal because of an ownership change, and just throwing shade to hide their bad faith.”
