Snooki hit with $7 Million lawsuit over merchandising deal
Washington: Jersey Shore’s Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi has been sued for 7 million dollars as a counterclaim against her filed by the licensing company SRG Ventures.
The move is a response to Snooki’s attempts to sue the company for breach of contract, after she alleged that they failed to adequately pursue licensing opportunities to maximize her earning potential, Contactmusic reported.
According to The New York Post, Snooki had entered into a contract with the company with a view to them arranging a number of licensing deals on Snooki-branded goods such as school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie.
However, the counterclaim from SRG suggests that, in fact, Snooki delayed agreement on a number of deals and was negotiating with other brands behind SRG’s backs.
Meanwhile, her lawyer, Robert J Hantman has so far denied these claims.
The 24-year old television personality has already ventured into the world of branding, with a Snooki fragrance and two bestselling books on the high street.
