Pharrell Williams - Pharrell Williams Files Lawsuit Over Liquor Range

Music producer Pharrell Williams has filed a lawsuit against a U.S. distillery over the lack of success of his cream liqueur.

Williams claims bosses at Diageo North America Inc. failed to produce, market and distribute his high-end Qream to the appropriate target audience, which resulted in low sales. He also alleges bottles were manufactured with faulty tops, decreasing consumer willingness to purchase the drink, and accuses chiefs of shutting down production without warning last July (12), giving Williams no time to find another partner.

The 39 year old filed breach of contract legal papers at Manhattan Federal Court last week (begs07Jan13), and he is seeking $5 million (£3.1 million) in damages, according to AllHipHop.com.
