Teazers ownership battle goes to court

2012-02-09 09:33

Johannesburg - Demi Jackson, the widow of slain Teazers boss Lolly Jackson, and a Durban manager are fighting in court over the Teazers brand, according to a report on Thursday.

The Star
reported that Shaun Russouw, one of four managers hired to run various Teazers franchises around the country, claimed that he owned the building from which Teazer operates in Durban.

He also claimed he owned half of the Teazers logo and brand.

Jackson and two of her children, Samantha and Manoli, had countered with an urgent application in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court.

They wanted the financial of details of the Durban branch of Teazers, or for the court to appoint a liquidator for the branch and give them half the profits.

There was also an eviction application for Teazers in Durban.

Russouw claimed that he had an agreement with Lolly Jackson that he would be the 50% owner of the Teazers Comedy and Revue bar, but that this was never made official.

Lolly Jackson was shot dead in May 2010.

    Remember a verbal agreement has as much value as a written one .... the difficulty is proving it without any doubt!!

      Lollies sort of dead, so wheres the corroboration going to come from? The Durb's boykie is going to get smoked.

      I am sure Lolly kept an agreement in file 13 to verify this.

    ha ha .. so .. let them tease each other in and out of court, and when all is said and done, they will have achieved what?

    I hope they get to the bare facts to expose the naked truth, otherwise one of them will find themselves up a pole without a G-string.

    Clubs like this support modern day slavery. See the movie "Neferious, Merchants of Souls" and decide then on the future of this so-called club...
