Chelsea Handler is suing a lingerie company … claiming she was completely blindsided after spending countless hours and tons of her own cash while agreeing on a deal to promote the brand.
According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Chelsea cut a deal with a company called ThirdLove to promote its clothing. She claims the company loved Handler’s unique body-positive image and brand and thought it was a fit for its customers.
Chelsea says she went through a specialized exercise routine to stay in shape and get ready for the photo shoots … and claims she passed on other potential deals to honor her exclusive commitment to the company.
She claims she had to fly out to Canada from L.A. for a photo shoot as part of the deal — and did so on her dime. But, Handler claims ThirdLove ended up pulling the plug on the entire thing at the eleventh hour.
The comedian and late-night host is seeking no less than $1.5M from ThirdLove.
We’ve reached out to ThirdLove for comment … so far, no word back.
