Stinky situation for the Purple One!

A New York court has recommended Prince pay $3.95 million to a perfume company after he flaked on promotional duties for a fragrance named after one of his albums. A second judge would need to confirm this ruling before the "Let's Go Crazy" singer, 53, forks over the cash.

According to the Associated Press, Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics licensed Prince's name, likeness and 2006 album title "3121" to market a fragrance called "3121" in 2007. The Grammy winning star reneged on promises to help promote the scent in summer 2007 -- thereby hampering all marketing efforts.
