Procter & Gamble Sells Frédéric Fekkai

The number of brands under the Procter & Gamble umbrella just got a little smaller now that the company is said to have sold Frédéric Fekkai to Fekkai Brands. Earlier this year, Frédéric Fekkai was said to be looking for ways to buy back his brand from the P&G giant, telling WWD  that his moves to reclaim his label had been fruitless. “I was trying; I’m not succeeding,” he said. “I don’t know exactly what happened. I will still be involved with the brand. I will always be involved.”

Fekkai Brands is a joint venture of Shaneel Enterprises subsidiaries Luxe Brands and Designer Parfums. Shaneel Enterprises is a supplier of fragrance brands like Jennifer Lopez, Carolina Herrera, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and more. P&G’s beauty brands include CoverGirl, Max Factor, Dolce & Gabbana, Pantene, Head & Shoulders, SK-II and Old Spice, to name just a few. 

P&G has not officially come forward to announce the sale, but is expected to do so later today.

Janice Dickinson Slaps Bill Cosby with a Defamation Suit

Janice Dickinson suing Bill Cosby

Janice Dickinson is not messing around with Bill Cosby. In November of last year, the model came forward to accuse Cosby of raping her back in 1982. Of course, Cosby denied the allegations but Dickinson is not letting him get off so easy. The former model has filed a defamation lawsuit over his denials.

Basically, Dickinson is seeking damages for a statement Cosby’s lawyer Martin Singer made in a letter to the AP in which he calls her rape claims “false and outlandish.” Dickinson’s suit says that her credibility has been tarnished by the denial and as a result, she has been made a victim once again. 

Dickinson explained the trauma she’s experienced as a result of the incident to Entertainment Tonight. “Stuffing feelings of rape and my unresolved issue from this incident drove me into a life of trying to hurt myself.” She said that after Cosby performed a show in Lake Tahoe, they went back to her room and the comedian gave her some wine and a pill which knocked her out. She said she woke up without her pajamas and the last thing she remembered was seeing Cosby disrobe and get on top of her.

Like many rape victims, Dickinson did not report the crime at the time. “I was afraid of the consequences,” she said. “I was afraid of being labeled a whore or a slut and trying to sleep my way to the top of a career that never took place.”

Dickinson’s current suit against Cosby also says his denial intentionally caused her more emotional pain. Cosby has not had to answer for his alleged behavior all those years ago in a formal rape trial, but hopefully Dickinson can find some semblance of closure with this new suit.

ELLE‘s website also reveals that Zion, who is Nicole’s first child with musician Gary Clark Jr., answered “nature’s call” on a mix of local and international designer clothes worn by the Perth-born model during the shoot.  (more…)
