Rita Ora and Superga Settle Exclusivity Lawsuit

Singer Rita Ora and Italian footwear co., Superga, have settled their until-recently pending lawsuit. You may recall that upon appearing in Superga's Spring/Summer 2013 ad campaign, Ora agreed to exclusively wear Superga sneakers for a given period of time, as specific in the parties' contract, in exchange for compensation (not an uncommon contract provision for models/celebrities, who appear as the face of a brand). Seems simple enough … until Ora stepped out in Converse sneakers last April.

GL Dameck, Superga's parent company, subsequently replaced Ora with model Suki Waterhouse and filed a lawsuit against the 23-year old, alleging that the Converse incident was a breach of contract (which it was) and withholding the third and fourth installments of the singer’s $250,000+ contract. As of late last week, the two parties settled the suit out of court, and not surprisingly, the settlement terms have not been released.
