    Dita Von Teese Sues Erotica Company

    Burlesque star Dita Von Teese is suing a British company for failing to pay her performance fees for two shows in London. In a lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court, the star claims the bosses of Erotica Limited owe her $25,000 for two performances at the Erotica trade show in November.
    Von Teese, real name Heather Sweet, alleges Erotica promised to pay her $50,000 to perform two shows daily, but only paid her half.
    She also alleges that the company is using her name and image to promote its 2008 event - without her permission.

    I think her real name sounds more like a burlesque dancer (or possibly just a regular ol' stripper) than Dita Von Teese does. That name sounds a bit tranny-ish.

    Still, if they owe the girl, they need to pay up!

    I don't understand why she's suing them in LA when she could take proper wction in the UK to recoupe her money. I don't even know if the LA Superior Court could do anything to a company based in the UK?
    It smacks of either publicity or stupidity to me for that reason...

    She gets $50,000 for slowly moving across a stage and relaxing in a giant martini class? Boy am I in the wrong profession!

    ^^ You mean you don't buy the proper venue argument in the docs?

    Sorry, I wasn't clear.

    I wasn't sure either and I though that might be what it was??

    I couldn't be bothered to read them tbh, Arieallover; I just think that if she wants her money that she'd be better going through the UK courts instead of the US courts.... but then UK Court docs aren't usually published....
