Kim Kardashian is often involved in many lawsuits, because she is so successful. People are always out for a slice of her fortune, either by suing her or by using her image without asking permission. And this is exactly what happened with Old Navy earlier this year, when the clothing company used a model who looked awfully a lot like Kim Kardashian. She used the company, because many people actually thought that Kim had lended her image to the clothing company. According to a new report by “Wetpaint Entertainment” released on Aug. 29, Kim has finally settled this lawsuit, gaining money rather than going to trial.
Earlier this year, Kim sued the clothing company for “misappropriated her personality” in a string of commercials for Old Navy. The company used a model by the name of Melissa Molinaro, who looks like Kim Kardashian. The lawsuit reveals that Kim feels that the company used Kim’s well-established appeal to sell more clothing without asking for consent.
Kim ended up settling the lawsuit. This is just another lawsuit done for her, but there is a reason why she would want to be done with this particular drama. The model who looks exactly like her is rumored to be dating her own ex-boyfriend, NFL star Reggie Bush. It sounds like Reggie also feels that Melissa looks like Kim Kardashian.
Do you think it was wise for Kim to settle the lawsuit and pocket some money, rather than going to trial to get even more money?
