Tori Spelling‘s mom, Candy, is suing an auction company that agreed to sell a portion of her extensive and very expensive doll collection for breach of contract and breach of covenant of good faith and fair dealing, RadarOnline.com is exclsuively reporting.
The lawsuit states that Spelling retained the Fleetville Group (AKA Theriault’s) to sell her collection of rare dolls in July 2011.
The docs state: “Spelling entrusted Theriault’s with possession of the Spelling Collection for the sole and limited purpose of conducting professional auctions featuring the Spelling Collection. However, after receiving possession of the Spelling Collection, Theriault’s repeatedly failed to provide Spelling with timely and complete accounting of what items had been sold at auction, what items remained unsold and the correct amount owed to Spelling based on the sale of her property.
“As a result of Theriault’s acts and omissions in violation of the parties’ agreement, in March 2012, Spelling terminated her relationship with Theriault’s, requested the return of all unsold Spelling Collection items and requested payment for all Spelling Collection items that had been sold by Theriault’s on her behalf…Theriault’s has failed and refused to provide Spelling with a full and complete accounting of all items sold, has failed to immediately return all unsold items and has failed to pay Spelling the amounts due and owing for the sale of her property.”
Spelling is seeking $500k in damages, wants full accounting of the dolls sold, return of her property and attorney’s fees.
