Chelsea manager is suing a lingerie company … claiming she was completely caught off guard after spending countless hours and tons of her own money while accepting a deal to promote the brand.
According to legal documents, obtained by TMZ, Chelsea has entered into an agreement with a company called ThirdLove to promote its clothing. She says the company liked Handler’s unique, body-positive image and brand and thought it suited its customers.
Chelsea says she followed a specialist exercise routine to stay in shape and prepare for photo shoots… and claims she passed on other potential offers to honor her exclusive commitment to the company.
She claims she had to fly to Canada from Los Angeles for a photoshoot as part of the deal – and did so at her own expense. But, Handler says ThirdLove ended up pulling the plug on the eleventh hour.
The late-night comedian and host is asking ThirdLove for no less than $1.5 million.
We’ve reached out to ThirdLove for comment… so far, no response.
