Kim Kardashian Sues Old Navy for Lookalike Model
Kim Kardashian, who seems to always find a way to be the main topic of conversation in celebrity gossip has yet another reason to be the trending topic of tabloids. Kim Kardashian is now suing Old Navy for capitalizing on her image without giving her a cut of the profits. Old Navy has tweeted of the campaign: “Breaking News!! @CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy’s Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?” Kardashian thinks the ad has cost her $20 million out of her pocketbook which is the amount she is suing for. The lawsuit, which the Kardashian legal team alleges that Old Navy found someone who looks almost exactly like Kardashian, model Melissa Molinaro, to fool the public into thinking that she was working with them.
The “Super C-U-T-E” ad itself says “This is real life/I’m not posing for a magazine,” and then goes on about her day, getting a root canal and being followed around by paparazzi. In response, Old Navy stated “Hey, we were just having a little fun with a ubiquitous topical reference.”
Take a look at the commercial for yourself and let us know what you think. Do you think Kim’s got a case?
