Skechers Files Countersuit Against Spears

Skechers has filed a countersuit against Britney Spears, claiming fraud and breach of contract.

The footwear company alleges the pop singer delayed decisions relating to product designs and advertising for Britney 4 Wheelers roller skates and apparel.

A Skechers representative says they were “continuously shut down, rejected and ignored.”

The complaint says Spears fraudulently induced Skechers into sponsoring her tour as a condition of getting the merchandise license.

Spears filed her own suit against Skechers just before Christmas, claiming Skechers ran ads with her picture before her line of skates was available, which caused her to miss out on lucrative bonuses.
