Their argument: it would damage their own brands.
Chyna is engaged to Rob Kardashian and applied for a trademark of her potential new name, Angela Renee Kardashian, back in May.
“Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are models, entrepreneurs, fashion icons. They starred in the reality television series, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which focuses on the personal and professional lives of the Kardashian-Jenner family, and also its spin-off series, including Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” the court documents read. It goes on to claim that Chyna is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity of Opposers’ Kardashian Marks.”
All this work and she has yet to claim the name.
We wonder what it will be like at the Christmas Table this year with this objection at play.
