Kim Kardashian Sues Makeup App For $10M After Her Photo Appeared In Their Ad

Kim Kardashian is taking a legal stand against the iHandy makeup app.

According to TMZ, the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, 39, is suing the iHandy app for using a 2017 photo of her to promote the makeup and beauty manipulation app.

Kardashian used the same photo to promote her own KKW Beauty line.

As the outlet reports, iHandy says they didn’t know that the photo was of the beauty mogul when they decided to use it.

And in response, the lawsuit says, “Defendant claim, absurdly, as its alleged defence… that they didn’t know that the unlicensed, unauthorized photo they knowingly stole and misappropriated was that of [Kim Kardashian West]… one of the most famous and recognizable women in the world.”

Kardashian’s lawyer added, iHandy “even had the audacity to threaten [Kim Kardashian West] not to bring claims against them for their blatant infringement, or they would go after her.”

The iHandy promises the “perfect selfies with professional beauty and body retouch tools, including face life, smooth, concealer, slim and more.”
