Chelsea, Cole, and the other defendants hit back on the lawsuit by filing a counterclaim in May 2020, claiming that Envy had in fact withheld $ 150,000 from them.
In court files obtained exclusively from The Sun, Chelsea’s and Cole’s legal team emailed the judge to get permission to file a request for the ex-business partner to produce additional documents.
They claimed the parties tried to “end” the legal war but were “unsuccessful”.
In August 2020, Chelsea and Cole, the defendants, requested accounting statements, bank statements and financial records.
The email alleged that Envy “did not prepare accounting records for the entire relevant period and only provided financial and bank statements for about seven out of about 68 companies”.
They alleged that Envy’s failure to provide the financial information sparked the dispute.
Chelsea and Cole claimed the financial documents would give an “accurate picture of how much money Envy received from the business made on behalf of the Defendants” and how much they “did not pay the Defendants”.
According to the judge’s email, they believe Envy owes them more than the $ 154,074.62 identified in their counterclaim.
The former reality stars are asking the court to give them permission to petition for the plaintiff to hand over the documents.
CHELSEA AND COLE SUED
As reported by The Sun, Envy alleged in the lawsuit that the company entered into a contract with the William Gerard Group in 2015 to provide advisory services to Chelsea and Cole, who signed a contract in 2016, in exchange for a portion of the deal revenue provide.
Envy worked from 2015 to 2019 as a “consultant in negotiating performance, advertising, licensing, licensing and television contracts and related contracts”.
The court records state that Chelsea and Cole “did not pay any of the contractually mandated fees”.
Chelsea and Cole had to pay Envy 35 percent of all fees or royalties for domestic business and 40 percent for international business.
The court records alleged that Chelsea and Cole “violated their contracts by directing certain brands to pay Houska, DeBoer, one of the other joint customers, and / or other individuals or companies directly to request payment of Envy royalties avoid”.
The MTV stars “both failed to meet many of their obligations to the brands for no reason or why,” the court records said.
The brands include Bombay Hair Wand, Carseat Canopy, Daniel Wellington, Diff, Fab Fit Fun, Kitsch, Kitsch Hats, Loving Tan, One Memory Lane, Perfect Beauty, Profile Sanford, Sparkling Organics Sipp, Sugar Bear Hair, Teami- Mixtures and timeless organic products.
The alleged failure to meet contractual obligations resulted in them “forfeiting certain fees to which Envy was entitled”.
The court records went on to claim that Chelsea and Cole made “millions of dollars” as a result of Envy’s efforts.
The company is suing the defendants for $ 3 million.
FIGHT BACK BACK
Chelsea and Cole filed the counterclaim back in May 2020, claiming that Envy had actually withheld over $ 150,000 from them.
Chelsea and Cole denied the allegations, claiming that they “owe Envy no payments” and that the company “wrongly withheld payments to Chelsea”.
The reality stars claimed Envy “actually harmed the professional careers of the Defendants Chelsea and Cole by withholding significant payments and acting unprofessionally, including, but not limited to, arguing and disrespecting Chelsea and Cole, potential.” and then- existing license contacts and other professional contacts of Chelsea and Cole. “
Defendants also alleged that Envy “purposely removed numerous business and / or income from bank statements in order to deter Chelsea, Cole and TWGG from receiving funds lawfully due and owed to them.”
Chelsea claimed she owed her $ 154,074.62 from deals with Loving Tan, Profile, Diff Eyewear, and more.
They are calling for the lawsuit to be dismissed and for “monetary compensation for their counterclaims” to be received.
In her reply, Neid denied the claims made against her.
