Kim K. vs Old Navy

Reality star Kim Kardashian is suing Old Navy and  its parent company, Gap for the clothing store’s alleged use of a look-a-like which violates her publicity rights.

An Old Navy commercial which aired on February 2011 features a women who closely resembles Kim K. Kim’s lawsuit says consumers may be confused by the ads and her actual endorsement. Her lawsuit is seeking unspecified damages and wants a federal judge to prevent Old Navy from using a Kardashian lookalike model in its ads again.

The model in the ad but not named in lawsuit is Melissa Molinaro. If you don’t really follow reality television, you may not be too familiar with Molinaro. She appeared on Making the Band 3 & Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll. She is also in the middle of recording an album. Kim Kardashian just initiated a lawsuit while Melissa Molinaro is getting a ton of free publicity!
