Lauryn Hill Sued in the Name of Fashion
Singer Lauryn Hill is getting sued—Again! A Los Angeles fashion consultant is suing Hill for holding onto some designer duds a little too long.
TMZ.com reported that stylist Via Davia Vintage filed suit against the singer in L.A. Superior Court. The suit claims that Lauryn Hill stole clothes from the company back in 2007 during her European tour.
In this case, the word “steal” is being defined as “failure to return the concert wardrobe provided at the agreed upon time.” Supposedly, Lauryn was only allowed to keep the clothes from Via Davia Vintage for four weeks for a fixed price.
The consultants claim that not only did Ms. Hill not pay all of what she owed, she kept some of the clothes for three months, if she returned them at all. Via Davia Vinatge accuses Lauryn Hill of keeping 70 percent of the clothes that was loaned to her, and the haul was almost entirely comprised of the more expensive items that she was allowed to borrow.
Back in August, the singer’s old guitar player sued her, claiming she owed him $20,000 in unpaid wages. Being sued twice in one year isn’t going to get you a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Lauryn!
