Controversy Alert: Lohan’s Tanning Mist Recipe Called into Question
LUXies, the tanning mist formula for Lindsay Lohan’s new product, Sevin Nyne, has been called into question!!
Sevin Nyne is currently available exclusively at Sephora, and has been pitched as a creative collaboration between Lohan and celebrity airbrush tanner, Lorit Simon’s company Lorit, LLC. Their claim was that they brought a LUX tanning mist that was once only available to Lorit’s celebrity clients, and now to the public! Although, this is exactly what is being challenged…
I have tried every tanning product on the market and worked with the best tanners in the business. When Lorit and I met, we thought it would be great to bring a quality product at a reasonable price to the market so everyone could enjoy a professional spray tan,” Lohan said, via Arizona Foothills Magazine
Jennifer Sunday has filed a formal lawsuit in Federal Court Tampa, FL claiming that she pitched the tanning mist formula to the Lohan camp earlier this year and both parties were on the verge of closing a deal—in the end, negotiations were terminated when they couldn’t agree on final terms.
Sunday alleged that the final product contains ‘exactly the same or nearly identical ingredients” as her creation and that Lohan has publically taken credit for the formula. –via WWD.com
Both parties had signed a confidential agreement and Sunday is suing for ‘breach of contract, theft of trade secrets and conspiracy.’
The actual manufacture of the Sevin Nyne product, United 1 International Laboratories LLC, is speaking up against the allegations and denying the claims on behalf of the Lohan.
The president, George Mitchell states, “when requested to help develop the formula for Sevin Nyne with Lorit LLC, I did so using my expertise and was not provided with any formulas or trade secrets by Loritt LLC or anyone involved in or related to the Sevin Nyne product.” —via WWD.com
So LUX Nation, who what do you think?? Which side do you believe?? Team Lohan/Lorit? Or, Team Sunday?
