Prince has been ordered by a judge in New York to pay $3.95 million to Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics, a company whose products he is charged with failing to properly promote.
According to the initial suit filed in 2008, the Purple One signed a deal with Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics in 2006 to front a campaign for a fragrance called "3121," which was named after the 2006 Prince album of the same name.
Prince apparently did not follow through with his end of the deal. The suit alleges: "Since July 2007, despite repeated attempts by Revelations, there have been virtually no communications from anyone who could commit to or coordinate any promotional efforts by Prince."
Despite getting hit with an almost $4 million dollar suit, the judge did rule that no evidence of "malicious intent" on Prince's part, so Revelations was not entitled to further punitive damages.
