Toya Wright Responds to $1 Million Lawsuit By Publisher [Details]
Rucuss staffJuly 14, 2012
Toya Wright has been accused of not promoting her book, Priceless Inspirations, properly.
Despite Wright’s book being placed on the New York Bestseller’s list, Farrah Gray Publishing is suing the former reality star for $1 million dollars for breach of contract. According to the lawsuit, Wright failed to promote the book according to the contract and she ‘purposefully and maliciously’ went behind the company’s back to sell her book through “unauthorized venues” which has caused a huge loss in profits.
The owner of Farrah Gray, who is responsible for printing and distributing her book, has terminated their agreement. The owner claims since Wright didn’t negotiate the termination clause in the contract Farrah Gray owns the rights to the book. Wright is forced to find another publisher for her follow-up book.
Wright went on Twitter to deny the allegations. She claims Farrah Gray owes her money. She tweeted:

im so sorry tweethearts….but i refuse to let anyone lie on me. i did all i can do to sell my book and promote it. so all of this is BS!
Toya’s rep released a statement about the lawsuit.
“Mrs. Wright consistently went above and beyond her contractual obligations which included: Self- funding a college tour promoting Priceless Inspirations, Cross promotion of her Ampro endorsement by placing the book cover on Ampro products nationwide and allowing Farrah Gray Publishing the platform to promote her book on her highly successful reality show on Black Entertainment Television.”
Wright’s book is not her only means of income. She recently opened a salon, owns Garb boutique, and just signed a deal with Walmart for a fashion line.
