Veronica Alexandra came up with the original Blue Ivy name back in 2009, and named her company Blue Ivy Events. Which is why she was shocked to hear that Jay-Z & Beyoncé had named their daughter the exact same name!
Here's what she said:
"It took me six months to come up with the name. In fact, I called Beyonce's father. I didn't get to personally speak with him but I got to speak to his team. I wanted to communicate that we did exist in case there were going to be any issues, as well as the fact that we would obviously love to do all their celebrations. This was never a law suit, we never sat in court, there was no judge. The deal was bitter sweet."
But would Veronica Alexander agree to sell the name rights to the music powerhouse couple?
For the right price she would of course!
"Totally, totally, totally! Why would I not enjoy this opportunity and strike it right when I just happen to be in the way of their plans? For anyone who is a total hater of the situation that's happening, at the end of the day, I didn't choose it. I work hard to make my living and none of that is going to change. But if I was to strike some sort of ridiculous deal, then I think that would be a classic American story that would be worth projecting. And it's fun - why would I not have fun? I have no quarrels with them. I love them. I have worked with their lawyer and she is very friendly. They have not bothered me at all. I'm not going to bankrupt them, I'm not concerned."
Haha. Well, that's true!
We don't see a reason to fault the lady for coming up with an idea first and using the legal system to protect herself. After all this is America, baby!!!!
