Perfume Maker Sues Prince Over Contract In NY

A perfume company is claiming Prince and his music publisher failed to honor a contract to help market a fragrance named for the album "3121."

The breach-of-contract lawsuit was filed Monday by Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics Inc. in New York. The company says it licensed Prince's name, likeness and the album title "3121" to market its fragrance.

Revelations says it spent $2.5 million and agreed to pay Universal half of net profits from sales of the perfume. But it claims Universal and Prince haven't participated in various promotions since the fragrance launch in July 2007.

Universal spokesman Peter LoFrumento calls the claims "completely without merit." Prince's music studio in Chanhassen, Minn., did not answer several calls.
