Kendall & Kylie Jenner have been hit with a lawsuit…
Nearly one week after Kendall Jenner apologized for selling the vintage Tupac T-shirt with the sisters faces imposed on the likeness of Pac and Notorious B.I.G., the Jenner sisters are firing back. The photographer who filed the lawsuit, Michael Miller, alleges the Jenner’s “misappropriated and wrongfully exploited at least two original photographs” of Tupac.
In a statement released by the sisters, the company states that they purchased the images from a company that had been authorized to license them. “Canada Inc, the licensee manufacturer of the K + K brand, purchased a very small quantity of vintage T-shirts with performer images already on them,” the company’s statement reads. “Canada Inc did not copy anyone’s image, remove any copyright notice from any image, or attempt to exploit Mr Miller’s claimed right of publicity.”
Miller is seeking $150,000 per photo for statutory damages, but the Jenner girls could be in even more trouble. Violetta Wallace, the mother of the late Notorious B.I.G. found the ordeal to be “disrespectful, disgusting and exploitation at its worst” and filed a cease-and-desist order. Mrs. Wallace could file a lawsuit against the Jenner girls and if she does, they will have to pay up.
