Kendall Jenner is being sued by an Italian Fashion brand, and here’s why!
A few days ago, Kendall Jenner was sued for $1.8 million by an Italian designer, Liu Jo. According to the designer, she did not fulfill her commitment and refuse to refund the given amount. As a result, Liu Jo has filed a lawsuit against her in New York.
Despite getting half of the payment upfront, Kendall Jenner did not show up at an organized photoshoot
While the other Kardashian-Jenner sisters are busy building their own businesses, Kendall Jenner chose to be a model. Although she has been a committed model, things are not looking up in recent days. Earlier this week, an Italian designer, Liu Jo filed a lawsuit against her. The story goes that Jenner signed a contract to do two photoshoots for the designer. At the same time, she received $1.5 million prior to the photoshoot. While the first photoshoot occurred in 2019, the second had a date for March 2020. However, the photoshoot got postponed because of the pandemic. Despite Liu Jo’s efforts to re-schedule, Jenner did not respond. Ultimately, they asked for a refund but could not obtain even that. Therefore, they took the final route of a lawsuit. Now the designer is seeking $1.8 million to compensate for the damages.
According to Jenner’s agency, the lawsuit is without merit
Despite the lawsuit, Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is quiet. However, her model management agency, The Society Management is speaking up on her behalf. While talking about it, they said:
The Society Management speaks on behalf of Ms. Kendall Jenner. We have 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 honoring her commitments.
In spite of her success, Kendall Jenner has faced backlash for her modelling career
It would not be wrong to say that she is the odd one out. While her sisters are ultimate businesswomen, Kendall Jenner took a different path. Despite her being one of the top models, people accuse her of nepotism. However, Jenner is always vocal about her struggles in getting jobs. According to her:
I went to every single casting and ran all over not only New York City but all over Europe trying to get a job and make my way. I think it’s just a perception that people have, that I just was like, ‘Give it to me!’ and I had it… It definitely was not that.
At the same time, Kendall Jenner is fully aware of the advantages she has because of her family. Having said that, it is not easy feat to work with designers like Karl Lagerfeld, Fendi, Calvin Klein, and Chanel.
Although the lawsuit is a worrying situation, we should not forget that Kris Jenner can make anything happen. We have faith in her.
