Lucas Design tackles star in court over abandoned collaboration.
Sharon Osbourne is being sued by a jewellery design company that claims she backed out of a deal to collaborate on a jewellery range.
Lucas Design International filed suit against the reality TV star on February 3, seeking unspecified damages.
The design company, which creates a range of licensed jewellery ranges including Giles & Brother and Disney Couture, claims that it was approached by Osbourne last year to create a range of jewellery that would sell on US TV shopping channel Home Shopping Network. According to Lucas Design International, Osbourne backed out of this deal at the last minute.
Osbourne’s team are denying the existence of an official agreement between themselves and Lucas Design International, although do admit that there were discussions between the two parties that were abandoned when Osbourne felt that the designs were not of the quality she required.
Taking to Twitter, Osbourne said: "I refuse to put my name on a jewelry line or any product that I deem inferior in quality and overpriced. Bring on the lawsuit."
