LOS ANGELES — Adult performer Flower Tucci breached her contract with Reality Kings and LLL Advertising after an LLL contractor noticed her name on an Elegant Angel call sheet, according to court papers filed last week.

Tucci, who is suing Reality Kings and other defendants over trademark infringement and cybersquatting claims, said she discussed with the companies her intention not to be solely exclusive when she signed the January 2007 deal.

That deal commenced in December 2006 and was agreed to the following month at a dinner during the AEE convention in Las Vegas, according to documents filed in Reality Kings and LLL’s reply to her opposition to dismiss the suit.

The Reality Kings/LLL deal was a rich one for Tucci, who has acknowledged that she was to receive “two times” the industry standard fee for her services, a $5,000 signing bonus and "a new necklace."

As the case continues to heat up, Reality Kings and LLL have asked a judge to again dismiss the suit, claiming that Tucci is making “untruthful assertions,” that she wasn’t pressured into signing an exclusive performance agreement that she calls “improper,” and that she legally didn’t own websites operating with variations of her stage name.

Tucci’s suit alleges that the defendants registered and operated a number of websites — FlowerTucci.com, FlowerTucciPix.com, FlowerTucciNude.com and Club-FlowerTucci.com, among others — and are exploiting them without her permission.

Tucci, whose real name is Carole Molloy, registered her stage name with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in 2007 after working about five years in the adult industry. She has appeared in more than 400 adult videos and starred in the Showtime TV series “Family Business.”

The suit also targets a laundry list of companies and individuals, including studio Scorching Sands Inc., hosting company Net227 Inc., registrar NameCheap, as well as webmasters T. Kgels, Adam Nalepowski and Michael Puskarz.
