Ora Settles Sneaker Battle



British-Albanian pop star Rita Ora has settled a long legal dispute with Italian sneaker brand, Superga, after they accused her of breaching the contract with the company by wearing another company’s footwear.

Ora was named the face of Superga, a label owned by Scottish firm GL Dameck, before the spring/summer 2013 campaign. She took the honour from Alexa Chung and agreed not to promote any rival shoe brands for the duration of the contract.

She was hired as spokesmodel for Superga in 2013, but their collaboration turned ugly after the singer was spotted wearing shoes from rival company, converse, on a night out in London.

She said Superga bosses withheld the final instalment of her fee following their dispute. She then prompted a legal battle in which she demanded $144,000 (£90,000) plus costs and interest.

She demanded the third and fourth instalments of her fee plus VAT, costs and interest.

The case has been settled out of court and details over whether or not Ora received any further money from GL Dameck remain unclear.

It is now revealed that both parties have agreed to settle the matter, according to Britain’s Mail on Sunday newspaper.

The details of the settlement have not been revealed to the public.

In 2010, Ora featured in a commercial for “Roc Nation + Skullcandy Aviator Headphones” and in one for “CK one Lifestyle brand”.

On December 14, 2012, Electronic Arts released a statement announcing that Rita will be a character in the The Sims 3: Seasons video game.
