Last July Kim Kardashian's lawyers filed a suit against Old Navy for using a model in ads, named Melissa Molinaro, who looked an awful lot like Kimmy
Remember last summer when Kim Kardashian decided to sue Old Navy for using a girl who supposedly looks like her in their commercials? Her argument was that by doing so, Old Navy caused confusion in the marketplace and violated her intellectual property. Kardashian feels that her reputation has been damaged and is reportedly seeking $20 million from the Gap-owned company. While the law suit was filed back in July, The Gap just responded publicly via the Hollywood Reporter, detailing the case they plan to build against Kardashian and it isn't simple, but it is kind of hilarious.
In a drama of reality TV proportions, Kim Kardashian is out for legal blood. While she never shies away from a good endorsement deal, Kim is suing Old Navy for using a model who is her doppelganger in its recent ads. The model, Melissa Molinaro, is featured in commercials and a faux music video (view it here) for the brand, which started airing back in February. According to TMZ, Old Navy tweeted: "@CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy's Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?" Kim thinks so, too, and apparently doesn’t like it.
