Kim Kardashian Sued for Allegedly Copying New Perfume’s Logo
Kim Kardashian recently expanded her KKW Fragrance line with three new Kimoji-inspired perfumes — Kimoji Peach, Kimoji Cherry and Kimoji Vibes. The 37-year-old’s made $5 million in just five minutes thanks to the launch (insane, right?), but not everything went off without a hitch.
According to TMZ, Vibes Media is suing KKW and her fragrance company for allegedly copying its speech bubble-like logo. The company alleges that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star “has been marketing, promoting, and is now selling a Vibes perfume. The Vibes perfume comes in a bottle that is a close facsimile of the Registered Vibes Logo.”
The company claims that the perfume bottle is almost identical to the logo it has hanging in its Chicago, Illinois, office.
Joyful, irresistible and lively 💬 KIMOJI VIBES includes notes of watermelon, bergamot, juicy pineapple, apple blossom, peony petals, fresh jasmine, cedarwood, sunkissed amber and musk. #KIMOJIPERFUME is coming to the Pop-Up in @westfieldcenturycity on 07.14 and to KKWFRAGRANCE.COM on 07.17 #KKWFRAGRANCE
Vibes Media is seeking an unspecified amount of damages, an injunction that prevents Kim from selling any more of the Kimoji Vibes perfume, as well as all the unsold fragrances so they can be destroyed.
Little sister Kylie Jenner‘s Kylie Cosmetics website was sued back in December 2017 by Antoinette Suchenko, a woman who has been legally blind for more than 20 years. Antoinette uses a screen-reading device that provides audio of all text on a website and encountered difficulty when accessing the reality star’s site. Per the Americans with Disabilities Act, companies are required to provide the same full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages or accommodations to blind customers as it does sighted ones.
Kim has not yet commented on the lawsuit.
