Kendall Jenner is facing a lawsuit for allegedly breaching a modelling contract with Italian fashion brand Liu Jo.
In a legal complaint filed at a New York City court on Monday, the company accused the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star of failing to appear at the second of two planned photoshoots, for which she was to be paid a total of $1.5 million along with a 20 per cent service fee.
Liu Jo claims Jenner, 25, shot the first images in July 2019, with the second shoot set to take place in London in March 2020.
However, the coronavirus pandemic prohibited her from travelling, despite the company has already paid her $1.35 million of the total fee. Initially, the parties agreed to postpone the second shoot until the fall.
The company then “proposed multiple alternative dates and locations,” but Jenner allegedly “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,” according to the documents obtained by Page Six Style.
A spokesperson for The Society Management, which represents Jenner, told Page Six Style, “This suit is without merit. The Society Management, on behalf of Ms Kendall Jenner, has continually offered Liu Jo alternative dates and locations to fulfil an agreement that was forced to be delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. Jenner has willingly offered to complete services honouring her commitments.”
