Kendall and Kylie Jenner's fashion line just can't seem to get anything right. Al Pereira claims in his legal docs against Kendall Jenner Inc. that the model had no rights to use the image on her products without consulting him prior, reveals the news outlet.
Back in June, Kendall and Kylie Jenner decided that it'd be a good idea to plaster their faces on Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. pictures and sell them on t-shirts for $125 each. In July, photographer Mike Miller said he never gave Kendall or her sister Kylie permission to use his picture of Tupac.
The Jenners ended up facing a lot of backlash and got called out by Biggie's mom, Voletta Wallace, who called the shirts "exploitation at its worst." .
The Kendall + Kylie bag in question, the $150 Lee Leather Clutch, is created to look like the foldable white paper cartons often found in Chinese takeout restaurants and features an exotic red graphic with the words "KK Express Los Angeles, CA" circling a pouncing tiger next to the number three. "These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone who has been upset and/or offended, especially the families of the artists", they wrote. The former Victoria's Secret model went on explaining, "We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway". The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. "We will use this opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry".
