Perfume Lands Prince With Lawsuit

Soul superstar PRINCE is facing legal action from a perfume company after allegedly failing to fulfil duties to promote a scent named after his 2006 album 3121.
Fragrance manufacturer Revelations is suing the Purple Rain icon for breach of contract, claiming the singer refused to commit to promotional activities to which he and his label Universal Music Publishing Group had agreed.
In a suit filed at New York's Supreme Court, Revelations reportedly signed a deal with the music label that would see them receive 50 per cent of the profits of the perfume's sales in exchange for arranging for the star to take part in promotional campaigns.
In the lawsuit, Revelations state: "Since July 2007, despite repeated attempts by Revelations there have been virtually no communications from anyone who could commit to or coordinate any promotional efforts by Prince."
However, Universal refuse to accept the claims, responding in a statement that the company's accusations are "completely without merit".
This is the second legal battle Prince has faced this month (Nov08) - he was ordered to pay $58,000 (GBP36,700) for using the services of a video editor after he was sued by the technician for unpaid wages.
