RumorFix has obtained the contract between Katy Perry and a hair care company that sparked a lawsuit last week.


It is rare for the press to get such an intimate look at a pop star's multimillion dollar contract.

Here are the details of the $4.5 million two-year deal from 2011:

  • Katy would only have to set aside two days (up to 10 hours each day) for photography and production.
  • If travel was involved, Katy's company would be paid an additional $100,000.
  • Katy would do one phone interview to last no more than 20 minutes and she will have control over "publication, content and context of interview."
  • Katy would do one Q&A session and she would have "prior approval over all questions."
  • The hair company would become a tour sponsor with signage and a strong presence at concerts in the UK, Australia and New Zealand.
  • Payment would be made every six months in the amount of $1 million.
  • If a TV commercial was ordered, Katy would be paid an additional $1 million.
  • If the contract went into a third year, she would be paid $3 million.

 The Jemella Group, which is a British company behind GHD products, filed a preemptive lawsuit against the pop star saying they owe her nothing.

Katy's agent says Katy is owed $2 million based on an oral agreement. Jemella says there was no such agreement and says the contract was broken because Katy's popularity in Europe diminished.

      Katy needs to watch Judge Judy. Judy would tell her their agreement is within the four corners of their contract and no oral agreement can override that contract unless it it put in writing and sign by all interested parties.

      Katy needs to remember that Oral Contracts are not worth the paper they are written on 🙂
