HOUSE OF DEREON WILL BE IN COURT!
Wednesday, Beyoncé Knowles got smacked with a $1.5 million lawsuit by a man who claims she breached a contract and didn’t pay him enough for brokering the launch of the House of Dereon, her clothing line. The Insite made a pass by Dereon headquarters in downtown Houston and snapped this picture.
Manhattan businessman Greg Walker claims he introduced Jay-Z‘s girlfriend and her mom, Tina Knowles, to the folks over at Wear Me Apparel, Inc. (also defendants in his lawsuit), and that Beyoncé ponied up a pitiable $25,000 while Wear Me paid him only $85,000. While that might sound like a nice chunk of change, Walker maintains Beyoncé received “approximately $15 million” in the licensing deal – and his contract calls for him to get a whole lot more. Beyoncé’s apparently vacationing spokeswoman didn’t respond to detailed phone and E-mail messages.
