Kim Kardashian says her image is worth millions — more than $10 million — and that’s why she’s suing a makeup app for allegedly jacking one of her pics.
Kim claims in the new lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, iHandy used a 2017 photo of her to promote a makeup and beauty manipulation app. What’s especially galling to Kim — the photo was one she used to promote her own beauty line.
Kim’s lawyer scoffed at iHandy’s defense … that it had no idea it was Kim in the pic they used. The lawsuit says, “Defendant claim, absurdly, as its alleged defense … that they didn’t know that the unlicensed, unauthorized photo they knowingly stole and misappropriated was that of [Kim Kardashian West].
The app in question offers “perfect selfies with professional beauty and body retouch tools, including face life, smooth, concealer, slim and more.”
As for why she’s suing for $10 mil plus, the lawsuit says it includes the cost of licensing her photo plus emotional distress.
Note — she’s not going to get emotional distress … but she should be able to squeeze the licensing fee out of the app.
