SANTA ANA – A Lake Forest-primarily based cosmetics distributor is suing Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian for $ten million, saying the reality Tv stars backed out on a contract to promote a new cosmetics line.
The Kardashians, meanwhile, have fired back, filing a trademark infringement lawsuit towards Haven Elegance, accusing the company of continuing to launch new goods employing the Kardashian name and picture, in spite of a terminated licensing agreement.
The three sisters in 2012 inked a 5-12 months deal with Boldface cosmetics to launch a new makeup line identified as Kardashian Attractiveness that would use their names, trademark and image, in accordance to court documents.
Boldface ran into monetary difficulties and was purchased out of insolvency by Hillair Capital Investments, which formed Haven Elegance to distribute the makeup line that contains lip gloss, eye shadow and mascara and is sold at beauty stores which includes Ulta and Kohl’s. But immediately after the license was transferred to Haven, the Kardashians quickly stopped advertising the line and began hunting for likely traders to obtain out Hillair Capital’s stake, according to a federal breach-of-contract suit filed by Haven on Thursday. “The Kardashians desired a greater, more profitable deal than they had struck immediately after the dollars to carry on the line was previously committed,” the lawsuit says, incorporating that Haven has rights to use the Kardashian’s name and image for cosmetics. The suit names the corporations of all three sisters: “2Die4Kourt, Inc. KhloMoney, Inc. and KimsAPrincess, Inc.” Even so, the Kardashians, in a federal lawsuit filed Wednesday, also in U.S. District Court in Santa Ana, say they only agreed to use their names and picture so lengthy as they could give ultimate approval.
The lawsuit says Haven failed to make royalty payments and other breaches, resulting in the Kardashians to terminate the license agreement on July eight. Haven, in its lawsuit, says the firm, which only distributes the one makeup line, would cease to exist with out the Kardashian contract. Retain it civil and keep on topic.
