Fresh off the heels of her creepy stalker case, it looks like actress Uma Thurman may be headed back to court. WWD, is reporting Thurman filed
a $15 million lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan today (Friday) against Lancôme for
allegedly continuing to use her image in advertising even though her
contract had expired.
to Thurman’s lawyer, Bert Fields, her contract with Lancôme ended in
2004, but the brand has continued to use her image to sell products all
around the world during the past four years. She is seeking $15 million
from the French company, owned by L’Oréal.
But Lancome is
fighting back – the company filed a suit of its own earlier this week
in the State Supreme Court in Manhattan, saying it did not violate the
contract and does not owe Thurman money.
