Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney is being sued for some cheap thrills! Yea, the 24-year-old HBO star broke an agreement with “LA Collective”, which relates to their new line “Somewhere Swimwear”. The brand claims that Sydney Sydney allegedly bailed on a swimwear deal. Read on to know what happened.
Loss worth more than $3 million…
Sydney Sweeney is being sued by swimwear and lifestyle brand LA Collective for allegedly breaching her contract to model and promote their swimsuit collection. The company claims that Sydney was bound by the said agreement to model and promote their swimsuit collection, “Somewhere Swimwear”.
However, the last year’s agreement was broken by the HBO star as she not only violated the terms of this agreement but also wore their collections on Euphoria. While she was supposed to become the face of their new line, Somewhere Swimwear”, Sydney allegedly cancelled the agreement without a just cause or explanation.
The brand stated, “Sydney appeared to be on board at first and approved all of their designs and production prototypes. Then suddenly her staff abruptly cancelled the agreement without reason or cause, refusing to advance, according to the brand. She allegedly copied the designs for her personal use, wearing the bikinis on at least 5 episodes of Euphoria.”
In the lawsuit, LA Collective highlighted that Sweeney then allegedly appropriated their designs for her gain, wearing the swimsuits on at least five episodes of her hit HBO series. As a result, the company suffered a huge loss of around $3 million, an amount they could have earned by selling their new line.
