Pop star Rita Ora has settled her lawsuit with sportswear brand Superga over the company’s refusal to pay her 100 thousand pounds that Ora claimed she was owed. As the face of the spring/summer 2013 campaign for Superga, Ora had agreed not to be seen wearing any trainers other than the company’s footwear. However, in April 2013, Ora was photographer wearing a pair of white Converse trainers, in breach of her contract, while leaving Mahiki nightclub in London
As a result, GL Dameck, Superga’s parent company, refused to pay Ms Ora the third and fourth instalments of the her £180,000 fee. Although Ora admitted breaching the contract clause (she couldn’t really deny it when the pictures appeared in several tabloid newspapers), she claimed it did not excuse GL Dameck’s failure to pay her fee and demanded the remaining 90K in addition to VAT and costs.
The case has now been settled out of court for an undisclosed amount.
