Naomi Osaka Sued By Tennis Coach, You Owe Me 20 Percent For Life! https://t.co/16T0mJuNuE— TMZ (@TMZ) March 18, 2019
Naomi Osaka is being sued by her former junior coach Christophe Jean.
Jean has claimed that he established a contract with Osaka’s father Leonard Francois for coaching her and sister Mari when the pair were teenagers in 2011.
Jean declared Francois couldn’t afford to pay him at the time and that’s how the alleged contract came to being.
Jean states the contract entitles him to 20 per cent of Naomi and Mari’s prize money and endorsement deals for an ‘indefinite’ period.
Jean is seeking at least $2 million in compensation.
