Five of the biggest names in music are taking legal action against a clothing retailer over claims that the brand did not seek their approval before using their names, lyrics, and photos on their products.
Jay Z, Beyonce, Rihanna, Pharrell and Kanye West are suing the French clothing company Eleven Paris for using their names, images, and trademarks without permission.
Apparently Beyonce had sent Eleven Paris several cease and desist letters, but the company continued to sell products featuring her (as well as the others mentioned above) name and lyrics.
Now she's taking matters to court, and her husband, as well as her mogul friends, are happy to join her on the prosecution team.
They are asking that Eleven Paris cease selling all products that have anything to do with them and repay them all of the profits made off said products as well as their current incurring legal fees.
Ouch. That's quite a lineup Eleven Paris is up against. The company has removed the artist-inspired products from its web store.
