Antonia “Toya” Wright is facing a million dollar lawsuit from the publisher of her New York Times best-seller, Priceless Inspirations.
Farrah Gray Publishing is said to be suing the reality star for not promoting her book adequately. According to the owner Ms. Farrah Gray, is going to file a lawsuit in the U.S. Federal Court in Northern District of Georgia. Farrah’s resoning for her alligations are that Toya’s “direct, contributory and vicarious inducement of copyright infringement, unfair competition and breach of contract.“
Toya tweeted last night her thoughts pertaining to the situation with:

Toya’s Publicist has said a few things regarding the issue,
Mrs. Wright consistently went above and beyond her contractual obligations which included: Self- funding a college tour promoting Priceless Inspirations, Cross promotion of her Ampro endorsement by placing the book cover on Ampro products nationwide and allowing Farrah Gray Publishing the platform to promote her book on her highly successful reality show on Black Entertainment Television.
It apparently isn’t the first time Farrah Gray Publishing sued authors for similar circumstances. SandraRose wrote an “On Blast” post last year where another author says she was charged over $92,000 for “tweets and facebook fans that he said we acquired because of the book.”
He has refused to pay us a dime or give us our rights back to our book, prior to the law suit we requested that he sign back our rights to us and that he could keep the money that he stole. Initially he agreed to do so, but later backed out of the release agreement.
The author goes on to say that the publisher’s accounting of the royalty statements from the book “were grossly inaccurate and incomplete.”
Toya situation is similar in that she reminded the publisher that she is actually owed money from their deal AND that her book just so happened to be company’s ONLY NY times bestseller….
I found that hard to believe, especially after watching the Kim Kardashian reality TV marathon.
After that, the pair headed straight to the New
Jersey Nets player’s hometown for the first time as a married couple to spend the weekend with his
family and friends. ” I didn’t make a penny from the wedding and I’ll be donating the money for all the gifts to Dream Foundation”.
