Kate Hudson And David Babaii Being Sued Over Eco Hair Care Line
Looks like Kate Hudson is in some HOT water! Fox News is reporting (yuck) that 220 Laboratories Inc. has filed a lawsuit against Kate Hudson and business partner David Babaii over their new eco-friendly collection of shampoos and styling aids.
A couple months ago Ecorazzi told you all about Hudson’s new line that is made from “an exclusive blend of exotic ingredients free of sulfates, parabens, and animal testing.” Well it turns out that maybe some of those ingredients aren’t so exclusive after all…or so says 220 Laboratories.
The company is claiming that they were the only supplier of volcanic ash in the USA and entered an “oral contract” with the Hudson and Babaii to exclusively develop and manufacture the product. It was only after the agreement that the company revealed its secret ingredient, at which point Kate and David shopped the ash samples around to find a cheaper deal. Ouch!
The lawsuit bashes the duo, calling them “willful and malicious”, and accusing them of misappropriation of trade secrets, fraud, and breach of contract and confidence. BUT WHAT DO YOU THINK? Is all this drama gonna stop you from buying Hudson’s hair care line? Chime in and give us your thoughts on this hairy situation!
