Pharrell Williams believes someone is to blame for the sluggish sales of his new line of cream liqueur…and that it’s not him.
According to Allhiphop.com, the music producer has filed a lawsuit against distillery Diageo North America Inc. for failing to produce, market and distribute his high-end Qream to the appropriate target audience, which resulted in low sales. He also alleges bottles were manufactured with faulty tops, decreasing consumer willingness to purchase the drink. Williams accuses the company of shutting down production without warning last July, giving him no time to find another partner.
The 39-year old-filed breach of contract papers at Manhattan Federal Court last week and is seeking $5 million in damages, according to the website.
