Rich In Faith Star Rich Wilkerson In Legal Battle With Miami Artists For Using Murals To Promote Church Without Permission
Rick Wilkerson, Jr. — the Miami pastor who married Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West — is in the middle of a legal tussle with local muralists who are seeking damages for the unauthorized use of their art to promote Wilkerson's Vous Church.
Here's what you need to know: Wilkerson's growing ministry was renting out the auditorium at Jose de Diego Middle School in Miami to hold services. Many talented artists had voluntarily painted murals at the school to reportedly raise money for the arts program. Vous Church used images of the art as the backgrounds of invitations and fliers to promote the church — both physically and on social media.
The artists were not asked, credited, or compensated — causing seven people (including artists Typoe, Bikismo and Ahol Sniffs Glue) to sue Wilkerson.
