Amidst all of the drama between Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna, the youngest members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have been facing legal woes of their own. The sisters have been threatened with a lawsuit by Notorious B.I.G.’s estate, and it seems The Doors have gone forward with one against them as well.
Their legal drama stems from a T-shirt line the sisters debuted for their Kendall + Kylie line, which depicted famous rockers, rappers, and album cover art with their initials or faces plastered over them. The famous sisters allegedly did not ask for permission to use any of the images in question and sold them for $125 a pop.
Now celebrity photographer Michael Miller has filed a complaint, stating that Kendall and Kylie Jenner never asked him permission to use any of his photographs.
But according to Kendall and Kylie Jenner’s lawyer, all of the lawsuits are absurd.
Todd Wilson, who represents the family’s legal affairs, stated that suing them is like suing “actors in a movie.” He basically highlighted how little effort the girls put into their own clothing line, saying that they had nothing to do with the production or idea for the shirts, but only gave their final approval. It seems he is insinuating they were not aware that estates, photographers, or featured artists were not contacted.
The girls pulled the T-shirt line after the negative reactions, and at one point, considered donating all of the profits to the various estates and artists whose images they used without permission. There has been no word of how that is proceeding.
Kendall and Kylie Jenner wrote an apology to all who were offended by their outrageously priced “vintage” T-shirts, but this obviously didn’t quell Michael Miller. It also hasn’t stopped Voletta Wallace, Notorious B.I.G.’s mother, who stated that although the apology was nice, she was still considering moving forward with legal proceedings.
Kylie Jenner has previously landed in hot water when she was accused of copying a design from a smaller designer who sent one of their outfits from their boutique. Not long after the fact, an exact replica of the item appeared in Kylie Jenner’s store with her name on it.
