Judge says 3121 perfume company can sue Prince.

Not a good few days for ol boy. First the Irish settlement over the concert cancellation, then the dancing baby youtube thing, and now this...

I remember when the PR was floating around this project, the company's founder said Prince chose them because of their name's (Revelation) Biblical implications. We see how that all worked out.

http://www.phillyburbs.co...rince.html

A Huntingdon Valley company's lawsuit against superstar recording artist Prince can proceed, a New York Supreme Court judge has ruled.

Revelations Perfume & Cosmetics sued Prince last year, claiming the singer failed to promote a perfume Revelations had developed in conjunction with his 2006 album. The company said it spend $2.5 million developing and marketing 3121, but it tanked when Prince refused to make appearances or do anything else on its behalf.

Last week, a judge dropped two of the five counts against Prince and his Paisely Park Entertainment, but said fraud accusations could proceed.

Revelations said Prince promised to promote the perfume when he signed a letter agreeing to the contract struck between the company and his recording studio, Universal. Universal is also named in the suit; it has denied the claims. Prince has yet to file an answer.

Sadly, there's a part of me that's happy to see Prince get what's coming to him.

P's publicist and attorney's need to get at him about following thru with business like this. Perhaps there's more to the story then this. News sometimes has a slant

(FOX News anyone)? ...

Am I am the only one that seems the irony of someone complaining about how people do business with him but does his own business so badly?

He should have just done some concerts during 2006 to promote the album and perfume. Maybe mentioned it on and appearance or two. This situation was easily avoided.
