According to TMZ, although the women had initially agreed to promote the makeup line with the original owner, they were not given their due royalties and therefore did not want their images used.

A judge has now issued an injunction preventing Haven Beauty from using any photos at all of the sisters.

However, even with this win, the case is far from being settled. We'll keep you updated!

Rita Ora has made it very clear she is NOT "Becky with the good hair!"

After Beyoncé supposedly revealed Jay Z's alleged affair when she dropped Lemonade earlier this year, fans went crazy trying to figure out the identity of the rapper's supposed mistress.

In all the divalicious drama, members of the Beyhive were quick to call out the British beauty as a possible suspect.

The businesswoman is being sued by Aquazurra for copying their "Wild Thing" tasseled sandal down to even minor details. However, it should be noted that fashion designs are not protected by copyright law, which makes it easy for knockoffs to go without being challenged in the marketplace.

That's probably why Ivanka & Co. weren't too worried when they totally copied the Aquazurra shoe!

Note the similarities between Ivanka's "Hettie" sandal on the left and the "Wild Thing" shoe on the right (below):

If it's not one thing, it's another!

Beyonce's Ivy Park athleisure brand has been taking tons of heat since its inception… and now it's shooting down allegations that it's factory workers in Sri Lanka work under sweat shop-like conditions.

In a piece published by British tabloid The Sun earlier this month, the outlet accuses the company of relying on "poverty-stricken seamstresses" at the MAS Holdings factory. Additionally, the mag says the workers work up to 60 hours a week and earn 4.30 pounds — or $6.17 — a day.

The Kardashians

The Kardashian sisters are finally fighting back.

As we told you back in March, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, and Kourtney Kardashian were slapped with a lawsuit filed by hedge fund Hillair Capital Management for allegedly not holding up their end of their Kardashian Beauty deal.

On Wednesday, Kris Jenner's gals filed a court doc saying the investment company had no intention of being a part of the cosmetics world, but "planned to make millions of dollars in exploitative loans to a distressed cosmetics company (Boldface) that had licensed the Kardashians' names and images for use on color cosmetic products."

Additionally, the reality star sisters argue that any problems would need to be settled in arbitration, per their original contract with Boldface.

According to court documents, the investment company claims that it "suffered significant damages" due to the Kardashians, and are seeking the $10 million they've already invested plus the value of their equity interest that was estimated "between $64 million and $180 million."

Yikes.

If you've been following the Kardashians' business endeavors, the sisters originally partnered with the company Boldface in 2012 for Khroma Beauty. Unfortunately, Boldface went belly up and a judge blocked the beauty line from being called Khroma due to another beauty line having that same name.

That's when Hillair stepped in with $10 million to help save the newly-named Kardashian Beauty.

Long story short, Hillair is now claiming that Kris Jenner's daughters have not contributed to making the business a success, as they have not marketed the products to their millions of followers on social media.
