Sarah Jessica Parker's lawyer has been fighting tooth and nail to dismiss allegations that the actress has failed to return jewellery worth $150k.
Kat Florence is suing the Sex and the City star, claiming she signed a multi-million endorsement agreement in 2015 to promote and assist in the advertising of a new gem collection, but failed to live up to her end of the diamond deal.
On Wednesday, it was reported Florence had added an amendment to her lawsuit, accusing the actress of failing to return $150,000 in jewellery she loaned for a 2016 photoshoot. The designer is demanding damages for the pieces that were allegedly never given back.
Parker’s representative previously alleged Florence reneged on the contract and slammed the lawsuit, and now her lawyer is dismissing the new allegations against the actress.
This is just plain false, a statement from attorney Ira Schreck to Us Weekly reads. SJP was under contract to Kat Florence and was asked to keep the jewelry so that she could wear it on red carpets and other events when appropriate.
Sarah Jessica Parker is as honest and trustworthy a person as anyone I have ever met, the statement continues. She has never and would never hold onto anything belonging to someone else. In fact, she has been asking ever since Kat Florence wrongfully stopped paying her to have the pieces returned, but Kat Florence didn’t seem terribly interested in getting them back.
