"She demanded payment of 90,000 pounds plus VAT, costs and interest - and the case has now been settled out of court."
London, April 28 - Singer Rita Ora has been dragged in a 100,000 pounds legal battle after she was spotted wearing the wrong trainers.

Brand that signed singer as their ambassador attempt to bring her to heel after she's spotted sporting rival's company's shoes, reports dailymail.co.uk.

The Kosovan-born singer might want to be a little more careful with her outfits after a pair of trainers landed her in the centre of a 100,000 pounds legal battle.

As the face of the spring/summer 2013 campaign for sportswear brand Superga - a label owned by Scottish firm GL Dameck - Ora agreed not to be seen wearing any trainers other than the company's footwear.

But in April 2013 the singer was spotted in a pair of grubby white Converse trainers as she left Mayfair haunt Mahiki with her celebrity friends Cara Delevingne and Ellie Goulding.

GL Dameck claimed this was a breach of Miss Ora's contract and cited the Converse incident as a reason for withholding the third and fourth instalments of the singer's 180,000 pounds fee.

Ora admitted breaching a clause of the agreement but claimed it did not excuse GL Dameck's failure to pay her fee.

She demanded payment of 90,000 pounds plus VAT, costs and interest - and the case has now been settled out of court.

Representatives for Rita Ora and GL Dameck declined to comment.
