Prince sued for not promoting perfume

Post by Baz on Tue Nov 18, 2008 6:29 am






Michael Jackson is not the only 1980s megastar to be sued this week Prince has also become the subject of a lawsuit. Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics, who went into business with the purple one to make a tie-in scent for his 3121 album, filed a $100,000 lawsuit yesterday, claiming Prince failed to help promote it.

Filed to the New York State Supreme Court, the lawsuit states that Prince and his publisher Universal reached a licensing agreement in December 2006 to use Prince's name and likeness for the marketing of two scents, the second due out next year. Universal would get 50% of net profits in exchange for the artist's co-operation with marketing, according to Reuters.

However, the lawsuit goes on to claim: "Since July 2007, despite repeated attempts by Revelations there have been virtually no communications from anyone who could commit to or co-ordinate any promotional efforts by Prince."

Universal Music Publishing Group responded: "Although we have not seen the complaint, we are familiar with the claims being asserted by Revelations, and they are completely without merit."

Earlier this month, Prince was ordered to pay $58,000 (36,700) in unpaid wages to a video editor.
