London: Sharon Osbourne has been sued by a design company which has accused the reality TV star of breaching a jewellery deal by pulling out at the last minute. Lucas Design International executives claimed they were approached by Osbourne last year to create a range of products for her to sell on the Home Shopping Network.
According to a website, Lucas chiefs are seeking unspecified damages from the TV personality, alleging she unlawfully backed out of the oral agreement. However, a spokesperson for Osbourne insisted the lawsuit was without merit. Osbourne did not breach any oral contract with Lucas Design because no agreement existed.
"Sharon is looking to create her own jewellery line and did have discussions with Lucas Design. Unfortunately, the designs and pieces submitted were not the quality that was represented or hoped for. Sharon has moved on," the spokesperson said.
