Tamara Mellon Sues Mother

Fab Flash: Tamara Mellon is Suing her Mother

It's been a busy week for Tamara Mellon who launched the Jimmy Choo PEP range last night and is soon to launch a collaboration with H&M. She has now added a court appearance to her diary as she takes her own Mother, Ann Yeardye to court. The shoe giant CEO is aiming to claim back £6 million in a Channel Islands courtroom for a breach of contract in the sale of Jimmy Choo to Lion Capital in 2004.

Tamara previously filed a lawsuit against Ann in Los Angeles, but this has since been dropped due to jurisdiction issues. The problems between the two occurred when a partly verbal, partly written agreement was reached over who would get what. Tamara was supposed to take stock whilst Ann took cash during the sale, but some stock (worth £4 million) apparently was misplaced with Ann and she refused to return it. Eesh, this could literally be a case of handbags and stilettos at dawn.
