Sharon Osbourne

Sued Over HSN Jewelry Spat

2/3/2012 5:52 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0204_sharon_osborne_tmz_EXSharon Osbourne has been sued by a company that claims she reneged on a promise to hock jewelry bearing her name on the Home Shopping Network.

Lucas Design International claims Sharon approached them last year to design and manufacture a Sharon Osbourne jewelry line that she would personally sell on HSN.  Lucas claims they hit the drawing board and came up with some awesome baubles, and projected they would sell a cool million bucks worth of merchandise in 2012 -- with a 50% profit margin no less.

But it wasn't to be, because according to the suit Sharon backed out of the oral agreement at the 11th hour.

Lucas is suing for unspecified damages.

A rep for Sharon tells TMZ, "Sharon Osbourne did not breach any oral contract with Lucas Design because no agreement existed."  They add, "Sharon is looking to create her own jewelry line and did have discussions with Lucas Design.  Unfortunately the designs and pieces submitted were not the quality that was represented or hoped for.  Sharon has moved on."

Good luck trying to enforce an oral agreement. Yes, technically they are legal and binding but only it you can prove one existed, what was agreed upon, and that there was a meeting of the minds. Any company that would do any real work on a project without a written contract deserves whatever they get.

PAY BILL WARD WHAT HE DESERVES! Black Sabbath fans want him on the record and tour. If he isn't there, you might as well cancel the reunion.

TMZ, either hire me as a proofreader or buy your staff DICTIONARIES. "Hock" is taking something to a pawn shop; "hawk" is selling or peddling something. You've used the word wrong for years--and now twice in the same week. Please get people who have some knowledge of the English language to write your stories!

"Hock" means to pawn. "Hawk" means to peddle. I believe you meant "hock".

Dudes! It's "hawk," unless she's wanting to leave her personal jewelry with HSN, in return for their money.

I like Sharon. She has done some amazing things...true, her face unfortunately resembles an over-stuffed pillow now, but maybe that's what she likes. If I had her money, maybe I'd do the same thing. (Well no, probably not.) But it surprises me she would entertain having anything to do with HSN.

I am sick and tired of Sharon and Kelly Osbourne. Whatever is spewed from their mouths is utter nonsense. Sharon made prejudicial remarks contra Italian men, which insulted an entire culture---she can rest assured that no Italian man wold lower himself crawling into her. We all know what they are--uneducated white trash who are failing miserably in trying to redeem themselves among decent folk
