Chelsea Handler suing a lingerie company … and claiming she was completely blind after spending countless hours and tons of her own money while agreeing on a deal to promote the brand.
According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Chelsea entered into an agreement with a company called ThirdLove to promote its clothing. She claims the company loved Handler’s unique body-positive image and brand and thought it suited its customers.
Chelsea says she underwent a specialized training routine to stay fit and get ready for the photo shoots … and claims she passed on other potential deals to honor her exclusive commitment to the company.
She claims she had to fly to Canada from LA to photograph as part of the deal – and did so for her penny. But Handler claims that ThirdLove ended up pulling the plug on it all in the eleventh hour.
The comedian and the night host are seeking no less than $ 1.5 million from ThirdLove.
We contacted ThirdLove to get a comment … so far we have no word left.
