Pharrell Williams was photographed arriving on a flight at LAX International airport in Los Angeles yesterday (Jan 14).
The music producer recently filed a $5million lawsuit against Diageo North America claiming that the world’s leading premium drinks marketing company broke a contract to distribute his “Qream” alcoholic beverage.
The lawsuit claims that Diageo failed to produce and distribute his “Q Qream” alcoholic beverage ,which was supposed to be a high-end drink marketed towards women.
The lawsuit claims that in July 2012, Diageo informed Williams that they would be shutting down the Q Qream business, without warning, after two years of buildings the brand.
Pharrell claims that sales of his Q Qream liquor were “substantially lower” because it was marketed as a “club drink” and not the “high-end, leisure class” drink that he envisioned Q Qream to be.
The lawsuit also claims that Diageo manufactured bottles of Q Qream that has faulty tops, impacting bartenders and consumers willingness to use the product.
