Britney Spears Sued for $10 Million Over Perfume Line in Business Litigation Lawsuit

According to Justice News Flash, pop singer Britney Spears is embroiled in a business litigation lawsuit that has been filed against her by Brand Sense, the licensing firm that helped her launch her fragrance line. The lawsuit seeks $10 million and requests that Spears submit to a deposition in the case before she leaves on her upcoming summer concert tour. The business litigation lawsuit was filed in Los Angeles Superior Court at the end of May.

Since Spears is still under a court-ordered conservatorship from 2008, her attorneys argue that she is incompetent to testify in a deposition. Brand Sense has requested that a judge order Spears to submit to the deposition in this case.

According to court documents obtained by celebrity gossip site TMZ, Brand Sense alleges it negotiated a lucrative cosmetics deal between the singer and Elizabeth Arden back in 2004, for which the firm would be given a 35 percent commission on any of the Spears-branded fragrances that were sold. The licensing firm claims that Spears instead informed Elizabeth Arden to send all royalties to her, essentially cutting the firm out of the agreement.

In addition, the business litigation lawsuit alleges that Jamie Spears, the singer’s father who is also named as a defendant in the suit, stated that the commission of 35 percent was too much and that Spears did not want to pay it. Then, according to Brand Sense, a secret, separate deal was brokered between Elizabeth Arden and Spears in an effort to avoid her prior obligations to the firm.

A hearing is set for the business litigation lawsuit on July 11.
