Kanye West

Brands have been impersonating Kim Kardashian and her family's style for YEARS (have you seen Boohoo and Fashion Nova's websites?) but now Kim's had enough.

Fast-fashion companies have been stealing original designers from "true designers", and the KK Beauty mogul has finally commented on the Instagram-type brand lookalikes.

She wrote a host of tweets addressing the issue, and has officially filed a lawsuit against Missguided for $10 million;

"It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas."

She addressed the Yeezy controversy, airing out her annoyance that fashion organisations have been blatantly copying her husband Kanye West's designs;

"I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent," she said.

She continued, referencing the Thierry Mugler dress she recently wore;

"Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site – but it's not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet."

"My relationships with designers are very important to me. It's taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life."

"I often plan for weeks, sometimes months, and even a year in advance, and I’m grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create," she tweeted.

While Kim didn't actually name any fashion brands, she filed a $10 million lawsuit against Missguided for using her trademarked name and likeness to promote it's product online, according to E! News.

E! News obtained the documents detailing the lawsuit against the UK-based company. In the suit, Kim writes that their actions are a "blatant and willful violation of her statutory and common law rights of publicity." 

The document states that "companies have sought out ways to leverage Kim's celebrity status and social media following without seeking her consent," and have purposefully allowed her to be "an unwitting and unwilling spokesperson of their products."

The lawsuit also states that Missguided has used Kim's likeness for their "marketing and sales strategy" without the TV personality's consent.

"Like other 'fast fashion' companies, Missguided, which sells clothing throughout the world on its website (among others), has become notorious for 'knocking off' the clothing worn by celebrities like Kardashian," the suit continues.

"Missguided does not merely replicate the looks of these celebrities as seen on red carpets, in paparazzi photos, and in social media posts. Missguided systematically uses the names and images of Kardashian and other celebrities to advertise and spark interest in its website and clothing."

Missguided issued the following statement to E! News.

"We haven't received any notification of legal action, but in any event any action based on online banter would be meritless," the statement read. "Missguided shoppers know the score- We're about the celeb look, for people without their bucks. For the record, as much as we love her style, we're not working with Kim on anything."

Last February, the reality TV star posed in an unreleased gold dress her husband Kanye West made for her last summer, and wrote on Instagram;

"P.S. fast fashion brands, can you please wait until I wear this in real life before you knock it off," she captioned her post. Fashion Nova created basically the same dress not long afterwards.

"Hey @KimKardashian, We just couldn't help ourselves," they wrote on Instagram. Cheeky bunch they are…

As far as we know, Kim has yet to file a lawsuit against Fashion Nova. Missguided also copied the exact same dress.

They're fairly shameless, we have to admit. Time will tell if the Kardashian manages to quench the copycats.

Kim Kardashian has had to deny that her eldest daughter North West has a BOYFRIEND. We put that in capital letters, because the child is just five-years-old.

Rapper Consequence's son Caiden Mills referred to North as his "boo", and many people jumped to the conclusion that they were dating.

Kim has now made it totally clear that her five-year-old daughter does NOT have a boyfriend, according to The Daily Mail.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

The reality TV star was leaving the Hollywood Beauty Awards with Chris Appleton last night, and the 38-year-old was asked whether or not it was "too soon for North West to have a boyfriend" by a paparazzi.

The query was referring to seven-year-old Caiden Mills, son of Consequence. Kardashian replied, "She doesn't have a boyfriend. Like, is that for real? She's five."

Consequence was part of Good Music, the music label created by North's famous dad, Kanye West. Mills himself has over 52,000 Instagram followers, and has been pictured with both Kanye and Kim.

Mills posted an Instagram caption relating to North on February 6, saying,"Shout out to Northie, babygirl I’ll see you soon."

The same day, the youngster posted a photo of himself holding a gold pendant necklace, saying, "She’s gonna love it. Wrap that up sir, I’ll take it."

Then he posted a photo on February 9 with his arm around North, writing "Boo'd up" as the caption. Weird…

Caiden celebrated Kanye West's album College Dropout achieving its 15th anniversary, describing it as the "First album that North’s dad and my dad worked on together."

"North, Saint and I had the BEST time on our play date at @exploratorium. It was so much FUN," he captioned yet another image of himself and North, with her brother Saint.

On Valentine's Day, he posted a snap of himself brandishing a heart-shaped box of sweets captioned, "Love is in the air." Realistically, he probably isn't writing the captions himself, but still.

We're fairly sure the Instagram account isn't run by the seven-year-old, but who knows?

Neither Consequence or Kanye have commented on the matter, but we're fairly relieved that Kim has calmed everyone down with her comments.

North West sings at Kim Kardashian and Kanye church services, so she'll probably have an album out by age 10.

Kanye is well-known around the world for his….controversial… and often not actually requested opinions. Scratch that, they're rarely requested, if ever.

However, he gives them anyway, even to his wife Kim Kardashian; queen of social media and reality TV.

We've already seen him controlling her closet, essentially throwing out her entire wardrobe so he could re-do the whole thing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2012. He EVISCERATES her clothes choice.

As if that wasn't cringe-worthy enough, Kim's make-up artist Mario Dedivanovic has revealed that Kanye doesn't hold back his thoughts on his wife's beauty and cosmetic routine.

During Dedivanovic’s The Master Class last weekend, Kim's long-time MUA let it slip that Kanye West has plenty of opinions about the choice of products.

He allegedly even offered to pay Mario to move to L.A. from New York so he could be with Kim legit 24 hours a day, according to People.

“Kanye is actually really opinionated sometimes,” Kim said. “He will come in and be like, ‘You know your blush is a little heavy.’ Or say, ‘What are you doing? That’s not the shape of your lip.'”

Essentially, Kanye has moved on from her wardrobe to her makeup, and is obsessed with Mario being around for Kim's glamour;

“Kanye actually called me and said, ‘Alright how much will it cost for you to move back to L.A.? I want you here for her,'” Mario said.

Kanye also allegedly calls Mario on a regular basis to assist in maintaining Kim's face.

She commented; “He will call Mario without telling me! And Mario shows up without me knowing and he is like, ‘Oh Kanye called me and said it was a makeup emergency.'”

Eh, what? What are your thoughts on the matter; is this just incredibly rude and controlling or does Kanye just want the best for his wifey?

According to the statement, the name Gekyume was “specifically” chosen by the late musician ”for his first born son”. 

The family say the name “means ‘different state’ or ‘next’ universe of thought,” adding that they are “honoured to fulfil his wish”.

Kim Kardashian isn't one to hold back her opinion, not even to her sister Khloé.

The reality TV star inadvertently branded Khloé an 'idiot' on live television yesterday while discussing her sister's choice to remain in a relationship with Tristan Thompson.

Kourtney, Kim and Khloé joined Andy Cohen for a game of 'Plead The Fifth' on Watch What Happens Live, and the sisters were asked what they would have done had they found themselves in Khloé's position

Thompson famously was caught cheating on Khloé multiple times during her pregnancy, with video and photographic evidence causing an explosive controversy,​​​​​​.

Kourtney answered that she would most likely would have tried to keep her family together, but her reply wasn't the one which caused a stir online.

"From seeing everything that happened, it's so easy and quick to be like, 'oh my God, leave him, leave him,'" Kim chimed in.

Khloé tried to laugh the comment off, sarcastically replying "thanks!" which caused Kim to backpedal, saying she "didn't mean it like that".

Tristan's cheating scandal made headlines worldwide when videos of him kissing multiple women surfaced just before Khloé was due to give birth to the their first child, True Thompson.

The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil is now claiming that Khloe Kardashian has been "fat shamed into a prison of self-critique" following an Instagram post by the reality tv star.

Jamil is an ardent advocate of women's right and body positivity, and currently runs the i Weigh campaign to show women that their worth doesn't stop at their weight.

She is also a prominent speaker for banning airbrushing in the beauty industry, and refuses to allow photographers or magazine publications to edit her image.

The 32-year-old campaigns to end body dysmorphia, and has now focused on Khloe Kardashian for her repeatedly damaging messages aimed at young women.

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star posted a message to her Instagram story which said: “2 things a girl wants: 1) Lose weight 2) Eat.”

Jamil screenshot the message and uploaded it to Twitter, writing "This makes me sad. I hope my daughter grows up wanting more than this. I want more than this. Sending love to this poor woman. This industry did this to her."

“The media did it to her. They fat shamed her into a prison of self critique. Dear girls, WANT MORE THAN THIS,” she concluded.

Jamil has previously criticised the Kardashian clan for their weight-loss product endorsements, which are essentially laxative meal replacements and possibly encourage body dysmorphia.

The former T4 presenter argues that the family capitalise from the insecurity of others, making money from “the blood and tears of young women who believe in them”.

Jamil attended the Golden Globes with her The Good Place co-stars last Sunday, where the show was nominated for best television series, and claimed she has no intentions of stopping her campaigning.

She told the Press Association: “They’ll have to kill me to stop me talking out about the rights of women and minorities. It’s something I feel really passionately about I’ve been talking about it for years, I just didn’t have the platform that this amazing show has given me.

“I understand some people think I’m speaking out where it’s not my place, for groups who I don’t necessarily represent, or represent anymore, but I think someone has to say something," she added.

“And no-one listens to the people from marginalised groups so those of us with privilege have a duty to speak out so that their voices can be heard.” Dead right Jameela. You do you, gal.

News hit recently that Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are expecting their fourth child via surrogate, and already the parenting qualms are emerging.

A source has revealed to People that the rapper and reality star are already on the hunt for the best possible clothing for baby number four, and are officially "in nesting mode."

“They’re buying everything they need for him, and Kanye insists they go top-of-the-line for everything. So they’ve been shopping," the source added.

Apparently the Yeezy designer is a major online shopper; “When he can’t sleep, he gets online and buys whatever he wants. A lot of what they’re getting, they order online.”

That is one lucky baby, by the sounds of things.

As we all recall, Kanye West announced his intention to run for President of the United States at the VMA Awards in 2015 in a speech to the audience.

In case you need a refresher here's some of his original presidential sentiments:

'I will die for the art, for what I believe in. The art ain't always gonna be polite. Y'all might be thinking right now, "I wonder, did he smoke something before he came here?" The answer is yes, I rolled up a little something to knock the edge off. I don't know what's gonna happen tonight. I don't know what's gonna happen tomorrow, bro.'

'This is a new mentality. We're not gonna control our kids with brands. We're not gonna teach low self esteem and that to our kids. We gonna teach our kids that they can be something,' he continued. 

'I don't know what I'm finna lose after this, it don't matter though cause it ain't about me. It's about ideas bro, new ideas. People with ideas. People who believe in truth. And yes, as you probably could have guessed by this moment, I have decided in 2020 to run for president.'

He later decided to postpone his presidential pursuits until 2024, following a meeting with current Leader of the Free World Donald Trump in Trump Towers in 2016.

After posing for a few pictures with the president, the rapper refused to answer any questions about his visit, but later announced his move to run for president in 2024. 

The original tweet, posted on December 13th 2016, has since been deleted, but simply read '2024.'

Kanye has cemented his continued intention with another identical tweet today. 

He also let his followers know that he continues to support Donald Trump, tweeting 'Trump all Day.' 

'We will change the world. God is on my side. I am a Christian. I am a tax payer. I am myself. God is with us.'

'They will not program me. Blacks are 90% Democrats. That sounds like control to me.' he continued. 

He also validated his belief in 'Free Thought.'
