Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Coach For 20% Of All Earning

Two-time Grand Slam winner, Naomi Osaka is being sued by her former coach Christophe Jean,  who has been working with her since she was 13.
According to reports,  the former coach wants 20percent of her earnings. 

Jean claims that he signed a contract with Osaka's father, Francois, who he says could not afford to pay the coach for his services training both Osaka and her sister, Mari. 

According to him,  the contract entitles him to 20percent of Naomi and Mari Osaka's prize money and endorsement deals forever. 

Osaka's lawyer Alex Spiro said in a statement, "He believes he is due $2 million. 

"While it comes as no surprise that Naomi's meteoric rise as an international icon and inspiration would lead to some false claim, this silly, imaginary contract that Naomi never saw or signed - which purports to give away part of herself at the age of 14 - is particularly absurd. "

Osaka has enjoyed a remarkable rise that has taken her to the top if the women's tennis rankings. 

She won her first Grand Slam at the U.S Open in September 2018 against Serena Williams and recorded a three-set victory over Petra Kvitova at the Australia Open in January
