Prince Loses $3.95 Million in Lawsuit

The leader of the New Power Generation, Prince, was dealt a financial blow recently after a New York judge ordered him to pay $3.95 million to Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics.

Revelations claimed Prince was hired to promote their fragrance during media interviews and in-store appearances, but the “Purple Rain” singer did not follow through on his end of the bargain.

The company argued that the lack of promotions caused lackluster sales and resulted in the cancellation of a licensing deal.

According to Prince, he informed Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics he would not participate in interviews on behalf of the brand.
