Oscar Blandi is the man responsible for crafting the coifs of Jessica Biel, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, and other gorgeous celebs, but the state of his company’s finances are currently a hair don’t. Nearly three years after TPR Holdings Inc. bought a controlling interest in his company, RadarOnline.com has learned that the stylist has filed a lawsuit demanding they pay him the money they promised!

According to court documents obtained by Radar, Blandi and his business partners Louis Rotondi, Gina Bertolotti, and Gina Lombardi filed a lawsuit against TPR Holdings Inc. for $1,095,344.25, due to “nonpayment of amounts that are due and owing under two promissory notes issued by TRP” to acquire their interest in Blandi’s high-end hair product in 2011.

Should TPR “fail to appear” at the upcoming trial, the document notes, Blandi will be awarded that sum, plus 10% interest from the April 11 filing date, and court costs, in a summary judgment.

Blandi’s namesake salon on Madison Avenue in is a frequent stop for celebrity strands in distress. His most loyal clients — to name just a few — consist of Jennifer Garner, Faith Hill, the Olsen twins, and Kelly Ripa. He also joined the entourage on set filming Mission Impossible: 3 as the personal hair consultant of Tom Cruise.

Blandi launched his line, ‘Oscar Blandi Collection’ in 2005, and six years later beauty investors TPR Holdings LLC announced they had acquired a controlling interest in the company with a view to take these products on the route for international expansion. They are still in business together as of now, despite the lawsuit.

Story developing.
