A party being hosted by Eva Mendes and Calvin Klein to launch the brand’s new fragrance, Secret Obsessions, was shut down on Wednesday evening, Access Hollywood has learned.

The New York party was being held in the same building where actor Heath Ledger died of an accidental overdose, earlier this year.

Mendes, who is the face of the new perfume, was at the event when it was shut down.
The event was closed “due to security reasons,” a source told Access Hollywood.

A rep for Coty Inc., the license for Calvin Klein fragrances released the following statement to Access:

“As a result of ongoing disputes related to the use of the contemplated space, of which it was not aware until shortly before the proposed commencement of the event, Coty felt compelled to cancel the event as Coty did not wish to be embroiled in a dispute to which it was not a party. Calvin Klein, Inc. was not involved in the production of this event.”
