Khloe Kardashian landed face-first in legal trouble after allegedly stealing a bodysuit design.
Khloe Kardashian puts her extravagant lifestyle on the backburner as the reality star focuses her attention on the bodysuit battle and hires a high-powered attorney, Marty Singer.
All eyes are fixed on Khloe Kardashian’s crystal covered bodysuit, and not only because it’s sexy. Designer Destiney Bleu accused the reality star of knocking off her bodysuit design, and Khloe is arming herself to the teeth to win the legal battle, according to People magazine.
The high-profile catfight between Khloe Kardashian and designer Bleu started when the former tweeted out a promotional video of her own fashion brand Good American. In the promo video, a model can be seen dazzling in a crystal-covered bodysuit.
Less than 24 hours later, Bleu took to Twitter to quote tweet Khloe Kardashian’s promo video and accuse the reality star of “copying” her own brand Debleudazzed’s bodysuit design.
But Singer, who rushed to Khloe Kardashian’s defense as soon as she hired him, claims that Bleu may have done the stunt to generate sales for her merchandise.
Earlier this week, Singer penned a seven-page legal letter in response to the 27-page letter written by Bleu’s lawyer last week. While in their letter Bleu and her lawyer allege that Khloe Kardashian copied a number of Debleudazzed’s bodysuit styles as part of her latest Good American collection, Singer hit back at the allegations by calling them an “absolute lie.”
But Bleu’s lawyer may have an ace up his sleeve, as he possesses emails and text correspondences between the designer and Khloe Kardashian’s then-stylist Monica Rose as well as assistant Alexa Okyle, openly asking Bleu’s brand to send some of its designs to Khloe.
Singer lambasted Bleu’s claims and is calling for the designer’s lawyer to stop defaming Khloe Kardashian and Good American. The lawyer even threatened legal action against Debleudazzed for seemingly cashing in on the raging scandal.
Furthermore, Singer is accusing Bleu of taking photographs from Khloe Kardashian’s Instagram account without permission, “which your client freely admits as generated ‘a ton of sales.’”
Singer went on to defend Khloe Kardashian by claiming that the bodysuit featured on Good American’s latest collection is a completely different style than any of the bodysuits Debleudazzed has in stock.
During the war of legal words between Singer and Bleu’s lawyer it was revealed that it was actually a catsuit, not a bodysuit, that triggered the fierce legal battle between Good American and Debleudazzed.
Although Singer acknowledges the fact that Khloe Kardashian’s assistants did ask Debleudazzed to send them some of the bodysuit designs back in December 2016, the renowned lawyer noted that those bodysuits (or catsuits) are “completely different” from the one featured on Good American’s promo video.
While Bleu did in fact include a photo of a similar-looking bodysuit in her tweet accusing Khloe Kardashian of copying her brand’s designs, it was not the bodysuit that was provided to Khloe Kardashian back in December, claims Singer, who alleges that Bleu “misled the public.”
While Khloe Kardashian’s lawyer alleges that Bleu did the whole bodysuit stunt in order to generate sales for her own merchandise, it’s not like Debleudazzed is a no-name fashion brand.
In fact, Debleudazzed’s clients include such high-profile celebs as Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Lil Wayne.
After Bleu’s claims started vacuuming up headlines, Good American’s official Instagram account took a not-so-subtle swipe at Bleu and her brand by posting three images in a row of Cher, Diana Ross, and Britney Spears all dazzling in glittery bodysuits.
The caption reads, “Important to know your fashion history,” with the hashtag “#nofrauds.”
