Wrigley is reportedly preparing a lawsuit against Chris Brown to recoup the millions of dollars they spent on his endorsement deal for Doublemint Gum that went south when he was charged with assault against Rihanna.
According to entertainment columnist Janet Charlton, “Chris had apparently signed up for another five-year stint with Wrigley and finished a number of commercials when the Rihanna incident happened. Wrigley pulled his ads and fired Chris. Now they are said to be preparing to sue Chris for all the money they lost due to his bad behavior. They spent big bucks on ads featuring Chris along with other celebrities like Jay-Z and Mariah Carey. Since Chris was in them also – everything had to be ditched. Wrigley is mad and we hear they hope to recoup the money Chris caused them to lose with a big fat lawsuit.”
