Lydia Hearst Sues Gotham Magazine

Lydia Hearst is suing Gotham magazine and its Publisher, Jason Binn, for allegedly using a picture of her and fabricating quotes in an advert for something called Xante liqueur.

FishbowlNY has reached out to Gotham for a comment, but hasn’t heard back yet.

Somewhere, the people who work at Xante are jumping for joy, because this is the most press the liqueur has received in a long, long time. Maybe they should send her a case.

UPDATE:
We just spoke to someone at FGPR (they represent Gotham) and they had this to say:

To start, the issue is with Xante, not Gotham or Jason Binn. Publications cannot take responsibility for what clients give to them in artwork or ads. Also, at this time, they are not aware of anything formal, and no lawsuit has been brought against them.
