It further explains that the reps have attempted to re-schedule the second photoshoot on numerous occasions but obtained no response from Jenner.
The brand also claims that it has failed to obtain a refund of its payments to the model.
Earlier this year, Jenner faced accusations of cultural appropriation over her tequila brand ‘818’ after she released a new campaign in celebration of the liquor’s launch.
To promote the brand, the model shared photos of herself in Mexico in an agave field to her Instagram page, where she can be seen dressed in jeans, braids, and an oversized shirt with a cowboy hat slung around her neck as she leads a horse.
The supermodel also included photos of actual tequila farmers in the album, as well as a video of herself watching a farmer engage in the time-intensive process of distilling tequila from a distance.
At the time, Jenner disabled comments on the Instagram post.
The Independent has reached out to Jenner and Liu Jo for comment.
