Don’t mess with Sofia Vergara, people!
The actress just filed a $15 million lawsuit against Venus Concept for using her name and likeness in their advertising materials without her permission, after one visit and a weird selfie? Us Weekly reports:
Vergara, 43, was first linked to Venus Concept ahead of the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards in August 2014. The Colombian star used the Venus Legacy machine to get red carpet ready, and posted a WhoSay photo during the treatment.
In the selfie, Vergara rested on her stomach as a woman worked on her backside. “What is so funny Marilyn??” she wrote at the time. “Legacy massage at @drlancerrx.”
According to court documents, the company has allegedly been using blown-up photos of Vergara’s face and her name to promote its products at exhibition booths, trade shows and on the internet.
EW. Not only is this probably pissing off her other endorsement deals(Cover Girl and Head & Shoulders, to name a few) but this seems totally freaking classless and sleazy and this needs to end. There might be no such thing as bad publicity, but I’ll tell you one thing- I’m probably not going to be using Venus Concept anytime soon.
