Prince Pays $4 Million In Lawsuit
Good thing Prince has a boatload of money to pay these things.
A New York judge Friday ordered pop star Prince to pay $3.95 million to a perfume maker for failing to promote the 3121 line of scents.
Prince was sued by Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics in 2008 for failing to promote the perfume, which was supposedly inspired by his 2006 album 3121. The company said it spent millions of dollars in out-of-pocket expenses in reliance upon Prince’s commitment to promote, and when the matter went before a special referee, the estimation of actual damage was accepted. Now, a New York Supreme Court judge has confirmed the award.
Damn, we know Prince moves to the beat of his own drum, but he probably should have shown up and helped out if he knew it was going to cost him so much money. We’re sure that’s just a drop in the bucket for him, but that’s still a ton of moolah.
