Ariana Grande has sued Forever 21 for $10 million
Popstar Ariana Grande on Monday has filed a lawsuit against Forever 21, blaming the fashion brand of using her look-alike model in their promotional campaign.
In a complaint filed by Ariana against the brand, Forever 21 and Riley Rose misappropriated her image, name, likeness, music and other intellectual property to promote their brands for free.
The suit is combined with screenshots from Forever 21’s Instagram that show stills from Grande’s music videos being used to promote the Forever 21 brand, including “strikingly similar” “look-alike model,” who has a clothes and hairstyle similar to those seen in Grande’s video for her song “7 Rings.”
In an email to CNN, Forever 21 said, “Forever 21 does not comment on pending litigation as per company policy. That said, while we dispute the allegations, we are huge supporters of Ariana Grande and have worked with her licensing company over the past two years. We are hopeful that we will find a mutually agreeable resolution and can continue to work together in the future.”
