Zooey Deschanel is suing Steve Madden. She had a verbal agreement to create a shoe line at the brand, and get paid a whooping $2 million for only 13 days of work. Steve Madden decided against this later on, and cancelled the gig. Zooey won’t be able to go into a similar agreement with another brand, as per the agreement with Steve Madden.
I find it very hard to feel bad for her.
