According to Grande's lawsuit, Forever 21 wanted an endorsement deal, but Grande's team rejected the deal because the company was unwilling "to pay fair market value for a celebrity of Ms. Grande's stature."

They also allege Forever 21 used images of a look-alike model to make it look like Grande endorsed the brand.

Grande wants $10 million for the various alleged offenses including copyright infringement and common law trademark infringement.
