Kardashians vehemently reject involvement in new namesake beauty products
Kardashian Beauty has been mired in legal trouble for years.
A spokesperson for the Kardashians has slammed owners at a cosmetics company bearing the family's namesake for misleading fans.
Bosses at Haven Beauty debuted a fresh line of Kardashian Beauty products last week (ends08Jul16), moving forward with the latest five-item Fierce collection despite the fact executives at the organisation's principal investor Hillair Capital Management LLC are currently engaged in a $180 million (£137 million) lawsuit with sisters Khloe, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian.
And in a press statement issued to TMZ on Wednesday (13Jul16), a representative for the three siblings slammed Haven Beauty executives, claiming the reality television stars have absolutely no involvement with any part of the Fierce line.
"Over the weekend, new cosmetic products were announced on the Kardashian Beauty cosmetic social media pages with pictures and statements from Kourtney, Kim and Khloe," the rep expressed. "The three Kardashian sisters are not in business with this cosmetic company."
The statement concludes, "The people selling the Kardashian Beauty brand and their predatory owners knew this and are attempting to mislead the Kardashians' fans by stating that the Kardashians are still involved. This outrageous conduct is a legal matter and will be dealt with accordingly."
Kardashian Beauty has been mired in legal drama for years, as the brand was acquired by Haven Beauty two years ago after the original licensee Boldface went into receivership in 2014.
The legal team for Haven Beauty's principal investor Hillair Capital Management LLC sued Kim, Khloe and Kourtney in March (16) for breach of contract, accusing the sisters of failing to support the Kardashian Beauty brand by being the faces of it and asking for $180 million in damages.
Proceedings related to the case have been stayed and the Kardashian sisters' lawyers have asked for the matter to be resolved in arbitration.
