Kendall and Kylie have been the subjects of a number of lawsuits lately, but it seems they have one less on their hands (for now).
The two sibling moguls recently reached a settlement with Michael Miller, a photographer whose image of Tupac was used on t-shirts in their "vintage" tee collection of their Kendall + Kylie line last summer without his approval.
Although this lawsuit seemingly is coming to an end, the sisters are also facing legal trouble due to their use of another legendary rapper's images in the same fashion line. The Notorious B.I.G.'s estate has filed lawsuits against the Jenner sisters as well, for using images of the also deceased artist. "This is misappropriation at its finest," the estate lawyer Julian K. Petty claims. "I’m curious to hear the justification. I’m even more curious to hear the proposed resolution."
Along with this, Biggie's mother, Voletta Wallace, took to Instagram to air her frustration on the matter. The post reads:
"I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this.The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt. This is disrespectful, disgusting, and exploitation at its worst!!!"
The Jenners issued a statement via Instagram following the post, in which they apologized for the design, claiming:
"These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists. 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 as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry."
Seemingly, the two sisters haven't learned their lesson, as shortly after these incidents the two released a Chinese takeout bag almost identically resembling a bag released by Kate Spade in 2014. Luckily for them, no legal action has since followed their supposedly copied bag.
