Bruce Willis Will Lose Millions On His Vodka Endorsement


Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis is set to lose millions from an endorsement deal with Sobieski vodka. 

After a stock decline, the struggling French liquor company Belvedere SA – not to be confused with the vodka company – can't afford a previously negotiated payout of $26.1 million to the "Looper" actor, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The actor became the face of Sobieski vodka when back in 2009

In return for a four-year contract, the actor received a 2.6 percent stake in the company. 

The company promised to give Willis the $26.1 million if stocks fell below an undisclosed amount.  

Now, with the company's debt totaling near $977 million, it won't be able to pay the actor in full.

Rather, Willis will most likely receive a third of that number, according to the Journal, as creditors are expected to take control of the company to restructure the company's debt.
