Snooki might love the press but we doubt she’s liking this one. The tiny guidette filed a lawsuit last month to end her partnership with SRG Ventures.
The two had entered into a licensing deal where Snooks would have her name on items like home goods to clothing and more.
However, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi claims the deal wasn’t as lucrative as they had agreed upon. Her attorneys state they “failed to secure” royalty guarantees of at least $250k and another $250k in a license from a major retailer.
They also claim SRG didn’t bring in “five licenses approved” by Snooki.
As for SRG, they filed a motion yesterday to move the case to NYC as they plan to counter-sue claiming they have evidence to show otherwise.
They also claim Snooki was too busy to commit to the deal and that she had stated she owned certain trademarks but didn’t.
They also claim they introduced her to a fragrance deal which she turned down and then “She and her management team went behind SRG’s back and consummated the deal” with the fragrance company.
We’ll have to wait to see how this ends up in court.
