Kendall and Kylie Jenner's clothing line might be in trouble, reports Teen Vogue, and it's definitely not a good look right now.

The Jenner sisters are being accused of underpaying the factory that produces the merchandise for their Kendall + Kylie line. The controversy kicked off when Instagram account @Diet_Prada called out the ladies, writing, "Former 'billionaire' Kylie Jenner and sister Kendall's clothing brand won't pay its factory.” Yikes. As the publication notes, the reality stars-turned-entrepreneurs claim their relationship with the international apparel company in question has been misidentified.

Attempting to do damage control, a representative for Kylie told the publication, “The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by Canada Inc. The brand does not produce in Bangladesh. So [these allegations] are not accurate" adding,"They also mentioned Remake has been notified of this and 'has taken the brand down from the site and is in the process of deleting their current social media posts.'”

@Diet_Prada's initial post has been deleted. However, they've made a follow-up post regarding their initial claims and what shady dealings they still believe the model and makeup mogul have their hands in, regardless of what may or may not be "misidentified." In another statement, the page wrote, "We’ve been contacted by reps from @kendallandkylie who’ve refuted the allegations that the brand is not paying its factories, as reported in multiple media outlets over the last week," adding, "As of now, Global Brands Group still lists Kendall + Kylie under their 'Brands' section on their website. It’s unclear at what point they may have changed licensees and manufacturers."

REPOSTING because we couldn’t edit the original any further and y’all seemed to get a kick out of Kylie juxtaposed with “Former ‘billionaire’” lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’ve been contacted by reps from @kendallandkylie who’ve refuted the allegations that the brand is not paying its factories, as reported in multiple media outlets over the last week. They stated the following in an e-mail: “The brand is owned by 3072541 Canada Inc. not GBG and we are not currently producing in Bangladesh using Global Brands Group.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As of now, Global Brands Group still lists Kendall + Kylie under their “Brands” section on their website. It’s unclear at what point they may have changed licensees and manufacturers. A quick search of 3072541 Canada Inc. led to a closed business page, but searching in conjunction with “Kendall and Kylie” you’ll find ties to the brand. Some early press from 2015, and some 2018 legal filings from a lawsuit filed by a photographer against the sisters for using Tupac Shakur’s image—remember that? Never forget that they printed their own faces and logos over photos of deceased iconic musicians and tried to charge $125 for them lol, but anyways… ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We’re awaiting comment from Mostafiz Uddin, a manufacturer for Global Brands who has been very vocal in the news the past week about his cancelled orders. Dieters, what are your thoughts? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • #kendallandkylie #kendallxkylie #kyliejenner #payup #kendalljenner #kylieskin #kyliecosmetics #highgloss #dietprada
