Charlize Theron has been sued by Swiss watchmaker Raymond Weil for breach of contract. The company claims that the actress broke her contractual obligation to wear only Weil watches in public. The suit was filed in New York County Court today.
Oscar-winner Theron signed on to be the worldwide spokesperson for the venerable watchmaker back in 2005. "Charlize is the perfect Ambassador for our timepieces," said Olivier Bernheim, Raymond Weil's CEO at the time. Theron also works as a spokesmodel for Dior fragrances.
Reps for Theron and Weil could not be reached for comment.
