Fab Flash: Jimmy Choo Founder Tamara Mellon Sues Mom

Tamara Mellon, founder of the famed Jimmy Choo shoes, served her mother, former Chanel model Ann Yeardye, with a $10 million lawsuit yesterday.

The suit cites breach of contract: both Yeardye and Mellon formerly held a stake in Jimmy Choo, but when they sold the business in 2004, Yeardye allegedly received stock in error that should rightfully have gone to Mellon. Yeardye supposedly refuses to return the stock, and thus Mellon said yesterday: "It is with immense sadness that I take this action, but I see no other way to protect my daughter's interests, which are my paramount concern. The property in question was to help secure my daughter's future, and I am baffled by my mother's refusal to return assets which rightfully do not belong to her." What an unfortunate situation.

That is crazy. I'd never go into business with family or friends because it can't turn out well.

So sad when issues like this happen. Tamara deserves her money back and has every right to it and for her mom to refuse like this is horrible. Terrible when a family gets broken.

I don't understand how a mother can put money before her children. what kind of family they are....if you can call "that" a family...sad.

Yeahhh ... I don't know ... I've never liked Tamara Mellon as a person, after watching, reading several interviews with her and learning how she came to earn her place at AKA "found" Jimmy Choo.
