Unfortunately, I’m never really shocked when celebrities file ridiculous law suits. From the outside looking in, it seems they’re all a little too sensitive about things. This is how I felt about Kim Kardashian’s recent law suit against Old Navy for using a model who looks just like her. My first reaction: really, Kim? REALLY?
I guess I can kind of understand that she was peeved they made it seem like Kim was the actual spokeswoman. However, come to find out, it’s much more than just being angry over a Kardashian wannabe.
The Kardashian trio have signed a contract with Sears worth millions to promote a new ad campaign for the Kardashian Kollection launching in about a month or so. As soon as Sears saw the Old Navy commercial, they got their panties in a twist, actually questioning Kim on whether or not she was seeing Old Navy on the side.
God forbid “confusion in the marketplace” is created. Now after hearing this side to the story, I can’t really blame Kim. I’d be worried about protecting my assets (pun intended) as well, especially when they’re worth millions.
Point being, this whole debacle is very much about adding more millions onto the ever-growing heap of the Kardashian gold mine, as opposed to Kim being upset over a random look-a-like. [via TMZ]
