Crocker also appears to lack any sort of representation: The 19-year-old lives with his grandparents in Tennessee, and perhaps it was the advice of his grandmother to trade his obligations to Onch for…and no, we’re not making this up…a plane ticket to LA.
In exchange, Crocker would, according to the complaint, “wear solely Onch Movement Jewelry during the duration of his stay in LA,” “do two days of press,” and would “mention that he was flown out by Plaintiff for the press campaign (a shout-out was deemed sufficient by Plaintiff.” Who knew the American justice system officially recognized the meaning of the term “shout out?!” Crocker was also obligated to attend the “Just Britney Art Show.”
Could someone get Crocker a representative? In exchange for all of that he agreed to a plane ticket?!
How, exactly, Crocker didn’t live up to his end of the bargain is unclear (unless you’re a lawyer, I suppose). Either way, he somehow “deceived” Onch into believing that he would live up to his end of the deal when, apparently he had “no intention” of doing so.
And because of the damage this has done to Onch’s reputation, they’re seeking $1 million (side note: Until Onch sued Chris Crocker, did they even have a reputation?). The head of marketing at Onch was either served a pink slip this week or was promoted to CEO.
Welcome to Hollywood, Chris!
Something tells me we’re only scratching the surface of the Chris Crocker Experience. Buckle your seatbelts.
