Kylie Jenner Sued for Copyright Infringement Over 'Life of Kylie' Artwork


While Kylie Jenner fans are awaiting the premiere of her new reality show, Life of Kylie, in August, one artist is taking issue with the show's promotional material.

On Wednesday, Sara Pope filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Jenner as well as NBCUniversal and E!, the networks behind the reality series, alleging that the show's lip logo is a copy of her "Temptation Neon" artwork and was used without permission. In the legal documents obtained by ET, Pope's legal team notes that "Temptation Neon" is at the top of Google when someone searches "neon lips," and would be easy to find.

"The finished artwork conveys glamour, intimacy, and sexual power -- themes similar to defendant Kylie Jenner, who is building her brand around those themes," reads the lawsuit filing. "Defendants sought to build a brand through artwork that captures glamour, intimacy, and power. By their zeal, they found 'Temptation Neon,' and they copied it for their own profit -- without consent, credit or compensation."

The lawsuit also mentions that this is not the first time Jenner has been accused of copying someone's work. Photographer Michael Miller recently filed a lawsuit against Jenner and her sister, Kendall, for copyright infringement over the use of his photos of the late Tupac Shakur on T-shirts sold under their Kendall + Kylie brand.

Earlier this year, the 19-year-old reality star was also hit with another copyright infringement lawsuit by Vlada Haggerty, an artist who claimed Jenner copied her "dripping lip art style" to promote her Kylie Cosmetics line. The two were able to resolve the issue and Jenner later posted a photo of Haggerty's artwork on Instagram, giving her full credit. Haggerty reposted the image as well as Jenner's accompanying caption.

ET has reached out to Jenner's reps.

Jenner doesn't appear to be letting the legal entanglements get to her, though. Last week, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star paid a visit to Madame Tussauds in Los Angeles, and playfully posed with her new wax figure. Not only that, she pulled an epic prank on her family. Check it out:
