SAY WHAT?: Kim Kardashian Suing Old Navy Over Reggie Bush’s New Girlfriend
Kim Kardashian is suing Old Navy for using a Kim K look-alike in their latest ad campaign. Her lawyer filed the lawsuit early this morning over the clothing giant’s “unauthorized use of Kardashian’s name, likeness, identity and persona.” Here’s where it gets interesting … The look-alike is actually Reggie Bush’s new girlfriend Melissa Molinaro.
According to TMZ, Kim is also peeved that Old Navy has been mentioning her in their tweets about the ad in an effort to gain more publicity. Back in February, they tweeted: “Breaking News!! @CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy’s Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?”
She is reportedly seeking between $15 to $20 million in damages and an injuction against the retailer.
A source told E! Online, “It could ruin her relationship with Sears if she’s affiliated with Old Navy. To protect her image, she had to file a lawsuit. She doesn’t even mention Melissa in the lawsuit.”
What do you think? Is Kim K’s lawsuit valid or is she just salty about Reggie’s new girl?
