New York, NY, United States (AHN) – Naomi Campbell has “unequivocally” denied claims by her former agent, Carole White, that she lied under oath in a fragrance lawsuit. Campbell was sued by Moodform in June this year after reportedly backing out of a contract to launch a perfume called Cat Deluxe with Kisses and Seductive Elixir.
But that’s not all – the British supermodel is not only being accused by White, but is being sued for breaching a contract with Moodform in 1998. In the contract, she reportedly agreed to pay a portion of profits to the people who created cosmetics for the line.
“The payments stopped coming,” Daniel Bright, a lawyer for Moodform, told the New York Daily News. “I guess she just decided she didn’t want to pay any more. She’s still making money from these products and so is the company that’s selling the stuff,” Bright said. “It’s my clients who got cut out.”
A spokesman for Campbell said she “categorically denies” Moodform Mission’s claims. “Ms. Campbell trusts our legal system and does not intend to litigate in the media,” the spokesman said. “She is confident that the judge and the jury in this case will fully vindicate her.”
The suit, filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, seeks unspecified damages; Bright declined to put a dollar figure on how much Moodform is owed.
The Campbell cosmetics line includes gels, deodorants and perfumes.
According to the New York Post, White wants Campbell to be investigated by the Manhattan District Attorney for possible perjury, with the aim of having her criminally prosecuted. The supermodel is countersuing, claiming White misrepresented her role in the contract negotiations.
This obviously isn’t the first time Campbell has had legal trouble – she was famously sued and sentenced for abusing her maid, including throwing a cell phone at the woman.
