Charlize Theron ordered to court for wearing the wrong watchOctober 10th, 2008 - 4:24 pm ICT by ANI
London, October 10 (ANI): Charlize Theron has been ordered to court, where a panel of judges will decide if the actress has to compensate luxury watchmaker Raymond Weil for a breach of contract.
The Swiss firm had decided to sue the actress for 10.8 million pounds after she had appeared sporting a Christian Dior timepiece rather than a Raymond Weil creation the company shes a brand ambassador of.
The company had revealed that it paid the Oscar-winning star to wear its exclusive range between October 2005 and December 2006, reports the Daily Express.
According to court papers, the Monster star was also the face of a Dior perfume, and was actually photographed wearing a watch from the Christian Dior line at a press event in Austin, Texas on 14 March 2006.
The stars legal team failed to have the case dismissed and a hearing for the trial will take place at Federal Court for the Southern District of New York in late October. (ANI)
