Who Owns the Scrambled Eggs? Abramovic Sued by Former Lover and Collaborator

Ulay, Marina Abramovic’s former lover and collaborator, is suing Abramovic for breach of contract. Ulay claims that Abramovic has not shared profits and denied Ulay creative accreditation on their performance collaborations.

Abramovic’s lawyer claims Abramovic firmly denies Ulay’s allegations: “My client doesn’t want to comment on them, they are libellous [sic]. My client considers that this lawsuit is abusive and aimed to damage her reputation in public, which is proven by his allegations to you. My client is very confident in her position in front of the court. She will defend her rights and reputation by all legal means.”

Apparently the lawsuit will be heard by an Amsterdam district court.
