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.
