Kendall and Kylie Jenner sued over lacy lingerie
The famous sisters have been slapped with a lawsuit by Klauber Bros, Inc., a company that creates original lace designs for use in underwear and other clothing. It claims that Kylie, 22, and Kendall, 24, used two copyrighted styles on the waistband of a Kylie Shop thong and a Kendall + Kylie slip dress.
In the lawsuit, filed in California on Wednesday, Klauber Bros, Inc. included photos of the Jenner-created pieces in question alongside images of its lace, claiming that the side-by-side shots “[make] apparent that the elements, composition, arrangement, layout, and appearance of the designs at issue are substantially similar.”
The lace company is seeking all profits from sales of the two styles.
This isn’t the first time Kendall and Kylie’s clothing designs have landed them in hot water. In 2015, the pair was sued by Island Company for allegedly stealing the brand’s trademarked logo — “Quit your job. Buy a ticket. Get a tan. Fall in love. Never return” — for use on T-shirts for their collection with PacSun. (The Jenners’ version simply read, “Run away. Fall in love. Never return.”)
Two years later, photographer Michael Miller filed a lawsuit against the siblings, claiming that they used his photos of late rapper Tupac Shakur on their Kendall + Kylie graphic tees without seeking permission. The mother of fellow music legend Biggie Smalls, who was featured on a shirt from the same much-maligned collection, also claimed that her son’s estate was never contacted about using his likeness.
A rep for Kylie Jenner declined to comment, and PR for Kendall + Kylie did not immediately respond to Page Six Style’s request for comment.
