Fiji Water was the hit of the Golden Globes red carpet all because of Kelleth Cuthbert (legal name Kelly Steinbach) who photo bombed dozen of stars.
After a fall out with the company where she sued them for use of her image without her permission and then they counter-sued claiming she was “trying to “extort close to half a million dollars” they have a new stars in town.
During the Independent Spirit Awards in Santa Monica, multiple Fiji Water models managed to slip into the photos of the rich and famous.
Catching onto the models, “If Beale Street Could Talk” director Barry Jenkins got in on the action sharing his picture on Twitter.
Other celebrities to be part of the fun were Glenn Close, Chloe Grace Moretz, Sam Heughan, and Joaquin Pheonix.
Steinbach claimed that when she signed her contract it was all fake with Fiji Water claiming the opposite, pointing out that she has “now bitten the hand that feeds her” and is capitalising on her “fleeting 15 minutes of internet fame.”
Fiji Water provides evidence in the case including an email between Clarence Chia, Vice President of Marketing of Fiji and Steinbach’s agent, Steve Miller of Wilhemina Models where Miller says “Understood. We’re in agreement” to Fiji using Steinbach’s likeness.
