Kim Kardashian wins $2.7M from clothing site
Kim Kardashian West was awarded $2.7 million and another $60,000 in attorney’s fees after a judge ruled in her favor against a clothing company that had been using her likeness to sell fashion. The reality TV star sued the company, Misguided, in February, claiming it had used images of her from high-profile events several times to sell knockoff fashion. The judge agreed, pointing to Instagram posts.
Missguided has repeatedly used Kardashian’s name and likeness without permission on its social media platforms to promote the sale of its clothing, the judge said. The offending brand didn’t put up much of a fight or any fight at all as it never responded to Kim’s lawsuit. Because of that Kim, Kim basically won by forfeit.
