The Kardashian-Jenner matriarch, Kris Jenner, is known for being vicious when it comes to protecting her family's brand. Now, Kim Kardashian is taking a page out of her momager’s book.

TMZ reports that the KKW Beauty founder is suing a makeup app for allegedly using one of her pics without her permission. Kim reportedly claims that iHandy used a 2017 photo of her to promote a makeup and beauty manipulation app. To add insult to injury, the photo they jacked was one the makeup mogul used to promote her own beauty collection.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and her legal team are suing iHandy for over $10 million, stating the reparations include both the cost of licensing her photo and using her likeness, as well as any profits they made from using her photo.

The app is, of course, denying that they knew that the photo was of Kim, a defense her lawyer is finding difficult to believe since, you know, she is one of the most famous people on the planet. iHandy also allegedly threatened to “come after” the mom-of-four if she decided to pursue anything in court, a decision they are likely regretting right about now.

We will see if Kim gets what she is owed as the case proceeds in the following weeks.
