Following the appearance of Reggie Bush’s ex-girlfriend and Kim look-alike, Melissa Molinaro, in an Old Navy commercial, Kim filed a lawsuit claiming that featuring the Kim doppelganger could muddle her business relations.
Kardashian claimed the ad might confuse consumers when it came to the products she does endorse, including a clothing line at Sears. Old Navy said that wasn’t its intention.
Though no dollar amount was attached to the lawsuit, numbers like $15 million to $20 million in damages were being tossed around. A settlement was reached, but unfortunately we will never know how much money changed hands. Kim’s lawyer said, “The lawsuit was resolved to mutual satisfaction of both parties, but beyond that it’s the only statement we have.”
Getting sued for looking like Kim Kardashian must be a pocket-hurting compliment!
