Chelsea Handler is taking the underwear company to court after it decided not to work with him despite contracts being signed. The comedian says he put a lot of his money (energy) into preparing for their collaboration, which he wants them back.
According to TMZ, court documents show that Chelsea have reached an agreement with ThirdLove, a type of underwear. He says the company reached out to work with him in late 2021 because of his “unique, functional, beautiful body image.”
Travis Scott recently Bought One Of The Rug Bugatti For $ 5.5 Million.
ThirdLove agreed to pay Chelsea $ 1.06 million (excluding expenses) to star in a television campaign promoting their clothing.
VERY GOOD VIDEO DAY.
Following the signing of the contract, Chelsea star recently revealed that he began preparing for the campaign photoshoot, which was scheduled to take place in Whistler, Canada in January 2022. This reportedly includes a “special exercise program” to get into the high profile photos.
In the complaint, Chelsea added that it had rejected other product and partnership agreements in honor of its contract with ThirdLove.
However, when it came time for a tug-of-war, the product was released at the last minute. Chelsea says he flew to Canada from Los Angeles to take pictures, and paid for his own travel expenses. Therefore, the comedian says he was shocked when ThirdLove suddenly canceled a partnership – on January 26, when he was already in town.
It was not immediately clear why ThirdLove had abruptly canceled their contract with Chelsea, but the comedian said it was because those who had negotiated the deal had failed to get proper approval.
“Handler believes and is informed that apart from the submissions presented to him, the ThirdLove founding team in charge of his campaign has never received the approval of the Board of Directors,” curt documents said.
“When the Board heard about the campaign at 11am, it ordered ThirdLove officials to terminate the Parties’ agreement,” they continued.
Chelsea claim ThirdLove has breached its contract and is seeking at least $ 1.5 million. He added that he had previously asked the company to reimburse him, but to no avail. To date, ThirdLove has not responded to a media request for comment.
Chelsea have been open about their fitness journey and self-interest road over the years. In 2018, the television actor admitted it took him a while to change his perspective on performance. “Now for me, exercise is about being physically fit for your health, and in the past it was about looking good physically,” she told PEOPLE.
