American top model Kendall Jenner is being sued by Italian fashion brand, Liu Jo, for allegedly breaching the terms of a modelling contract requiring her to appear for two photoshoots.
According to a legal complaint filed by Liu Jo on Monday in U.S. District Court in Manhattan, Jenner only took part in the first of two planned photoshoots but never turned up for the second one, which had originally been due to take place in March 2020 but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Liu Jo is seeking at least $1.8 million in damages, according to the complaint, Reuters report.
Liu Jo, which the complaint says, has already paid $1.35 million to Jenner for services covered by the 2019 contract, said it tried to re-schedule the second photoshoot multiple times but obtained no response from Jenner.
Liu Jo said it later failed to obtain a refund of its payments to the model.
