Wind-Up Records and Bob Guiney, one of the label's artists, have been hit with a breach-of-contract lawsuit by the production company behind ABC's dating reality series "The Bachelor."

Wind-Up Records and Bob Guiney, one of the label's artists, have been hit with a breach-of-contract lawsuit by the production company behind ABC's dating reality series "The Bachelor." In a lawsuit filed Friday (Dec. 19) in Los Angeles Superior Court, the company And Syndicated Productions (ASP) claims that Guiney, who starred in the most recent season of "The Bachelor," allegedly violated an exclusivity clause by promoting his Wind-Up Records album, "3 Sides."

According to the lawsuit, Guiney signed an agreement that he could not promote product unrelated to "The Bachelor" without ASP's permission. ASP claims to have denied Guiney and Wind-Up permission to promote the album.

The lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages and prevention of Guiney from making any more personal appearances to publicize the album. In the court papers, ASP says that by promoting the album in relation to Guiney's "Bachelor" fame, Guiney and Wind-Up are seeking to "make a windfall profit at ASP's expense."

"3 Sides" peaked at No. 114 on The Billboard 200 earlier this month. A label spokesperson tells Billboard.com it is company policy not to comment on pending litigation.
