Reality TV star Kris Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, was in Dayton this week to give a deposition related to a federal breach of contract lawsuit filed by Centerville-based B&P Company.
The 100-year-old company hired Jenner to promote its popular product Frownies, a non-surgical anti-aging forehead facial patch.
The lawsuit revolves around plastic surgery Jenner had in June 2011, mere months before her daughter Kim Kardashian’s infamous 72 day marriage to NBA player Kris Humphries.
The ‘work’ came a month after B&P says Jenner endorsed Frownies in a Mother’s Day interview.
“My kids love it. Kim, Kourtney and Khloe have used the patches, so there’s sort of something for everybody… (Bruce Jenner) actually steals my Frownies. He’s always using my stuff,” Jenner said according to the lawsuit filed in August 2011.
Jenner’s $305,000 contact with B&P was to extend from March 1, 2011 to March 1, 2012, documents say.
Several motions and responses have been filed in the case.
Here’s the gist of the on-going case from the latest documents filed in November:
In June 2010, Defendant TLK Fusion Entertainment, LLC (“TLK”) contacted B&P to explore an endorsement deal with Ms. Jenner to promote B&P‟s Frownies product line. B&P and TLK then negotiated the terms of an agreement. After entering into the agreement to promote the B&P Frownies product “Beautiful Eyes in a Bag,” Ms. Jenner publically underwent a facelift procedure, which was among other things, in breach of the Agreement with B&P. Thereafter, B&P filed its Complaint against Jenner Defendants and TLK for rescission, fraud and deceit, breach of contract, breach of covenant of good faith & fair dealing, unjust enrichment and Indebitatus Assumpsit. In response, Jenner Defendants filed an Answer, Affirmative Defenses, and Counterclaim against B&P (“Answer and Counterclaim”). On October 23, 2012, Jenner Defendants filed an Amended Counterclaim against B&P adding claims of fraudulent and negligent misrepresentation against B&P.
Contacted Friday Jenner’s local attorney David Carr Greer said he could not say much about the case.
He said it is set for trial January 2014.
B&P Company owner Kathy Wright said she and representatives from her company met with Jenner in downtown Dayton Tuesday.
Wright, who says she is sometimes mistaken for Jenner, said Jenner is just like she is on her E! TV show “Keeping up with the Kardashians.”
Jenner didn’t go unnoticed during her visit in town.
She had dinner Tuesday night with Greer and other attorneys in a private dinning room at CoCo’s Bistro. We overheard a group of women at Wednesday’s night Restaurant Week sneak peek party gab about seeing Jenner at the often busy near downtown eatery.
Coco’s owner Karen Wick posted about the star’s visit on Facebook page.
“She was in with attorneys (don’t know why). I did indeed meet her. She’s very pretty, gracious and complimentary of Coco’s. A nice experience for us,” Wick wrote.
