Pop star Katy Perry has struck back at the hair-styling company that rushed into court in anticipation of being sued over an endorsement contract.
Two weeks ago, Jemella Group Limited (JGL) sued Perry's loan-out company, Killer Queen LLC, contending that it had paid the singer USD 4.5 million under a two-year deal to endorse Good Hair Day (GHD), said the Hollywood Reporter.
In counterclaims filed in a California federal court, the 28-year-old singer's lawyers said that if there was no deal, JGL had no right to continue to use Perry's image on the GHD website and refer to Perry as the company's brand ambassador.
"Those who wish to do business with a company that does not honour its contractual commitments, yet reaps the benefits of the agreements giving rise to those commitments, would find a perfect business partner in GHD," Perry's lawyer said in their new legal papers.
