The Kardashians love to steal from black culture.
This isn’t something new, it is good to see that Khloe wasn’t able to get away with it this time.
Almost a year after Khloe Kardashian and her brand Good American were named in a headline-making trade dress infringement and fraud lawsuit for allegedly copying the design of the bodysuits upon which d.bleu.dazzled has made its name, the parties have settled their legal squabble. According to the notice of settlement that counsel for dbleudazzled, LLC lodged with the California Superior Court in Los Angeles last month, the parties have come to a confidential resolution, prompting d.bleu.dazzled to voluntarily dismiss the $10 million fraud and deceit, common law trade dress infringement, misappropriation, and unfair competition case that it initiated against Kardashian and her 5-year-old brand in late May 2020.
In the complaint that it filed in a California state court on May 29, 2020, Los Angeles-based d.bleu.dazzled alleged that between 2016 and 2017, Kardashian – by way of her team – “purchased and borrowed numerous pieces of [d.bleu.dazzled ] clothing, under the false pretense that the clothing items were for [the 36-year-old star’s] personal use.” The problem? Instead of actually wearing the garments, as her team had led d.bleu.dazzled to believe would happen, Kardashian copied them for the clothing brand that she was secretly working on at the time and that she eventually launched in September 2016 to allegedly sweeping success.
“From November 2016 through May 2017, Kardashian, through her assistants, repeatedly contacted [d.bleu.dazzled founder] Destiney Bleu Lewisand others at d.bleu.dazzled to order at least sixteen made-to-measure garments,” the brand argued in the suit. “At no time did [Kardashian or Good American] disclose to anyone at d.bleu.dazzled that [they] were planning to create their own clothing line with similar designs.” In fact, “Had Ms. Lewis been advised of [their] secret intent to steal her designs, she would not have sold or lent any garments to them.”
Didn’t even try to hide it.
This is what rich people do.
