2017 hasn’t been a great year for the Kardashian and Jenner family.
The year started on a sour note when Kendall Jenner stared in a Pepsi commercial. The commercial in question faced a load of backlash for ‘insensitive parallels to the Black Lives Matter Movement’.
In the advert, Kendall joins a group of protestors, who are being closely watching by police officers. After stepping out of the crowd, Jenner hands one of the officers a can of Pepsi. He takes a swig of it and gives a wry “well, what d’you know?” smile to his fellow law enforcement official while the crowd cheers.
More recently, Kendall and Kylie Jenner came under fire for a line of t-shirts that superimposed Instagram photos of the two over the top of pictures of iconic music stars which included Tupac and Ozzy Osbourne.
Adding to that the swirling tempest Rob Kardashian/ Blac Chyna have been a hot topic of conversation throughout the year!
It’s a clear sign that 2017 is going to be a tough one for the family!
But it looks like the Kardashian family have found themselves in hot water once more.
This is after reports that Kim Kardashian’s company has been hit with an huge lawsuit.
It was recently reported that Kim Kardashian’s company is being sued for a whopping $100m over her endorsement of LuMee.
LuMee is a phone case that apparently gives users the incredible ability to take perfect selfies. We could all do with one of these!
However, Snap Light has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against Kimsaprincess Inc., where they claim that they were the first to design a light-up phone case, and that Kim’s company is infringing on their potential profits.
Snap Light have alleged that they have been unable to compete in a market place dominated by LuMee which has been aided by Kardashian’s endorsement.
But a close friend and representive for Kim Kardashian has issued a very defiant statement in defence of the reality star:
“The patent lawsuit filed by Snap Light has no merit and is just another attempted shakedown. Kim has done absolutely nothing wrong.”
According to reports Snap Light have “asked the court to force Kardashian to stop promoting the LuMee brand of phone cases, claiming she gets a cut of the company’s earnings”.
But that’s not all they’re asking for.
Snap Light are also requesting a large sum of money to make up for the missed profit opportunities. $100m to be exact.
Kim Kardashian has promoted the LuMee phone case quite a lot, mainly promoting it through social media as she has a very large following on there.
Maybe Kim should avoid taking anymore selfies for a while, otherwise she may get sued again.
We wouldn’t want that, would we?
What do you think about Kim’s latest lawsuit and scandal?
Did she have it coming or is this a step to far?
