Jeff Lewis, the star of the Bravo reality series ‘Flip Out’ has sued his longtime assistant, fellow Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos, over her upcoming book. And the situation is serious.
For Jeff Lewis, it’s a breach of trust. According to the complaint, filed Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by THR, Lewis puts that Pulos told him she was writing a book about her family and personal life last October. However, despite a non-disclosure agreement she signed in 2008, he later learned the planned title was: Hang in There Baby — What One of the World’s Most Difficult Bosses Taught Me About Life, Work and Love. In short, Jeff is furious that the book is about his &her Flipping Out days and exposes private, proprietary or confidential information.
Lewis has demanded Pulos cease and desist from publishing the book. Although Pulos allegedly told him the book hadn’t been written yet, the book is now listed for pre-sale on Amazon under title Hang in There, Baby! by Jenni Pulos, to be released on August 20, 2013.
Bravo TV’s Flipping Out, which is currently airing its sixth season on Bravo; saw Lewis and Pulos’ loving but sometimes strained working relationship; and Pulos want to en-cash on that.
