Former Victoria's Secret Model Erin Heatherton sued for $10 Million
Washington : Former Victoria's Secret Model Erin Heatherton has been sued for $10 million by fashion stylist Clare Byrne over a fashion line they were supposed to launch together, claims a court document obtained by The Blast.
As mentioned in the papers, the duo was supposed to launch a contemporary sportswear line called RetroActive.
The stylist’s lawsuit claims that she worked for 28 days on the line between June and September of 2015, designing and fabricating prototypes, developing an advertising and business strategy, and even coordinating with a factory in China to manufacture the pieces. However, it seems all of that effort was for naught, as in October of that year Heatherton abandoned the project completely “without warning or justification.”
The actress was spotted wearing RetroActive prototypes at several events giving an impression that the company is moving ahead as per plan.
Now, when nothing fruitful came out, the stylist has now sued the model asking full compensation for her full, un-discounted per diem rate, as well as her out-of-pocket expenses and what she believes her stake in the company would have been worth, all to the tune of $10 million.
The model is yet to make a comment on the whole case. (The quotes in the story has been taken from PEOPLE magazine)
