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."
Neither Kendall nor Kylie have publicly spoken out against the allegations.
