    Default Victoria Beckham goes to war - over her 200 jeans

    Victoria Beckham is suing the Los Angeles fashion label that made her own-brand jeans.


    The Spice Girl is believed to be claiming Rock & Republic owe her as much as 50million for "loss of earnings" following her split with the trendy clothing company.
    The pop star signed up with the fashion label to make her jeans, which sold for more than 200 a pair, in September 2004. But she parted ways with the label two years later amid rumours of rows with designer and owner Michael Ball.

    Hardly media-shy but R&R said Victoria was not doing enough to publicise her jeans


    The normally publicity-hungry wife of England footballer David Beckham was reportedly criticised for not participating in enough PR opportunities.
    A High Court listing shows that Beckham Brand Ltd, a company set up by Victoria and David to deal with their activities in the world of fashion, filed a claim against Rock & Republic last month.
    There are no further details available because the claim form has not yet been served on Rock & Republic, but Victoria is reportedly seeking the payout as compensation for lost earnings as she believes the jeans were more profitable than previously thought.

    News of the legal case follows recent claims that Victoria, 34, has not been doing enough to publicise her latest dVb denimwear line. Sales have reportedly been so poor in the US that a number of key retailers are expected to drop the range next season.
    Kitson, a favourite boutique of LA celebrities, was among the stores rumoured to be planning to axe the label, with owner Fraser Ross speaking to the Press about the disappointing performance.
    In an interview with the US celebrity magazine People, Mr Ross blamed declining sales on Victoria's lack of promotional activity.

    "She's not supporting the line," he said. "It's not good for her brand and not good for her endorsements."
    However he later retracted the comments, describing the rumours of a split as "ridiculous" and saying that Kitson would continue to stock the dVb range.
    Victoria and David Beckham set up Beckham Brand to deal with their clothing ranges in May 2004, but records show that last year's accounts for the London-based business are overdue.
    A spokesman for Victoria said: "We wouldn't be able to comment on it. It is a legal matter." Rock & Republic also refused to comment.

    Well maybe her jeans shouldn't have sucked so much crack.

    Victoria is a lazy buttwipe who just wanted to rake in $50 million for doing nothing. I wish she would work a regular job and be forced to wear an old man's sweatpants that are filled with jock itch. It serves her right.

    The price is outrageous. I would never pay money
    like that for celeb jeans or any jeans. Crazy!
    Plus, they look like HASH jeans from the 70's.

    I would never pay that much for a pair of jeans. I don't care what fashion label it is. It's overpriced and, frankly, it's not all that.
    Rock the fuck on!

    Maybe they'd have sold more of those if they put em in Limited Too and Gap Kids.

    Outside of LA most of the people able to wear jeans that small still shop at these stores.

    Then they must be fucking tiny, because even my tiny-assed frame can't fit into jeans from those stores, anymore.

    Considering Posh weighs about 12 lbs., I'd say she probably shops at the toddler dept. at a kid's store.
