Marc Fisher Footwear, the ex-manufacturer of Ivanka Trump’s shoe line, was liable for nearly $1.5 Million in unpaid rent at Trump Tower, New York City, according a lawsuit filed earlier this year by the Trump Organization.
Bloomberg first reported the lawsuit in March. It alleges that the company owes rent for a 2015 lease for the entire 21st and part of the 22nd floors at Trump Tower. Marc Fisher was not liable for rent payments since November 1, 2020, according to the suit.
Before Ivanka Trump closed her fashion line in 2018, the shoemaker made Ivanka Trump's shoes.
Washington Post reported Friday that the suit was settled in April, for an undisclosed amount. The report states that the company was not the only tenant who missed rent payments at Manhattan's skyscraper.
