A t-shirt company stole Richard Pryor’s swag … according to a suit filed by the late great comic’s widow.
Jennifer Lee Pryor says Fret Shirt — a company that specializes in irreverent tees — used a pic of Pryor emblazoned with the word “Swag” … but did so without her permission. Now she’s suing to stop production on the line, and get her piece of the profits.
In the docs … Pryor is demanding they shell out $5 mil in damages.
It’s hardly necessary, but Jennifer boasts about Richard’s accolades in the suit … pointing out he won 5 Grammys and an Emmy during his legendary career.
Her point — Pryor was definitely swag … you just gotta pay for it.
