Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian hit with $10m lawsuit for backing out of makeup deal

Lawsuit: (L-R) Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian have been hit with a $10million lawsuit from cosmetics company Haven Beauty, which has accused them of backing out of a deal to promote their makeup line

As the Kardashians continue to beef up their bulging bank accounts with a seemingly endless list of endorsement deals, they're now also facing their fair share of inevitable legal disputes.
Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian have been hit with a $10million lawsuit by cosmetics company Haven Beauty, which accuses them of backing out of a deal to represent their makeup line.

The company, which the famous sisters recently accused of misrepresenting them as faces of the brand, has also asked a judge to block them from speaking badly of Haven, according to TMZ.


The website reports that Haven is seeking the huge payout for the 'damaging' comments they made as they allegedly turned their backs on the deal. 

It's been a busy period for the siblings, who last month were sued by a well-known talent agency that claimed it had a verbal agreement to set up deals for the reality stars.
Agency For The Performing Arts filed a lawsuit alleging they had been tasked with finding endorsements for the Kardahian-Jenners back in 2009 - taking a 15 per cent cut as payment.


Having helped the family make millions by procuring deals for everything from clothing to hair products, APA claims in legal papers viewed by TMZ that the sisters ditched the agency last year.
Since March 2015, they claim, they have received no further payments from the family.
The agreement was between APA and sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian and their younger sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Rob Kardashian is not named in the lawsuit.
TMZ reported that APA was looking for a substantial sum from the family.


The agency has offices in Beverly Hills and around the world, and represents high-profile brands such as  Marriott Hotels, Lamborgini motor vehicles and transportation company Bombardier.
In response to the lawsuit an attorney representing the Kardashian-Jenners said in a statement: 'APA's lawsuit is frivolous and the height of dishonesty. 
'The Kardashians and Jenners terminated APA in March 2015 for being incompetent and breaching their fiduciary duties, which cost the Kardashians and Jenners hundreds of millions of dollars.


'Now the real story of how APA totally failed its clients will be told and APA will have to answer for its incompetence and wrongful acts.'
This is certainly not the first time the Kardashians have been sued by those wanting a cut of their enormous income.
In March, the oldest three sisters were sued by investment company Hillair Capital Management after their Kardashian Beauty make-up line failed to produce the returns expected.


The company had injected the failing business with $10million after the family's former business partner went bust, following a court order to change the brand's name from Khroma beauty.
But Kim, Khloe and Kourtney, the suit alleges, failed to promote Kardashian Beauty on social media, leading to it's failure. 
Hillair Capital Management is seeking the lost investment plus the potential profits it was predicted to make - a total of more than $200million.
