It’s not looking good for her.
Kendall Jenner is being sued after she allegedly skipped out on a photoshoot and breaching her contract with Italian brand Liu Jo.
The model is being sued for $1.8 million after the breach, with the company accusing her of failing to fulfil the second of two photoshoot for the designer’s seasonal campaigns.
According to documents filed earlier this week in the US District Court for the Southern District of New York, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star didn’t show up at all to the planned event.
In a statement to Page Six, a representative for Kendall said: “This suit is without merit. The Society Management, on behalf of Ms. Kendall Jenner, has continually offered Liu Jo alternative dates and locations to fulfill an agreement that was forced to be delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Jenner has willingly offered to complete services honoring her commitments.”
Kendall was expected to be paid $1.5 million along with a service fee of 20% for her involvement in the campaign.
The lawsuit then claims that she had been paid a portion of this money already, and they had covered her travel costs and expenses, forking out $1.35 million.
Alleging that she completed the first photoshoot in July 2019, the second was set to be used for their Fall/Winter 2020 campaign but due to the pandemic, Kendall could not get to Italy to do it.
Offering to postpone it, they claim that Kendall “repeatedly failed to provide Liu Jo with definitive responses to Liu Jo’s proposals, proposed no reasonable alternatives, and ultimately turned down all of Liu Jo’s good-faith offers of compromise.”
While she said it would be an “impossible” task, the company also claimed she worked with another designer during the same timeframe.
