The lawsuit states that the parties agreed to postpone the shoot to the fall, but did not confirm a new date. Kendall allegedly eventually “ceased responding to Liu Jo” until the company “informed her that it considered her in breach of the contract and that, therefore, the contract was terminated. The complaint also claims it filed the complaint after “having no success in obtaining a refund” the supermodel allegedly owed.
A spokesperson for model management company The Society Management, which represents Kendall, told TMZ, “This suit is without merit. The Society Management, on behalf of Ms. Kendall Jenner, has continually offered Liu Jo alternative dates and locations to fulfill an agreement that was forced to be delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.” TMZ also reported that Kendall “has willingly offered to complete services honoring her commitments.”
Also in its lawsuit, Liu Jo said that after Kendall proposed to postpone the shoot to October, the company learned the model “would be traveling to Italy in September 2020 to perform a photo shoot for a different designer.” The complaint includes a link to a Metro U.K. article that contains photos of the model, appearing to show her arriving at a Versace shoot late that month. This year, Kendall appeared in ads for the luxury brand.
