Kanye West‘s clothing company, Yeezy Apparel is being sued for allegedly ripping off camouflage patterns from a competing company.
Yeezy Apparel is being sued by Jordan Outdoor Enterprises over camo hoodies, camo thigh-high boots, cargo pants, hooded bomber jackets, shirts, boots and other stuff.
TMZ says The lawsuit claims Jordan has distinctive markings on its Realtree line and Kanye’s companies ripped them off.
The alleged copycat pattern was used as a part of West’s Season 5 line for hoodies, bomber jackets, shirts, cargo pants and thigh-high boots. NBA players LeBron James’ brand, Unknwn, is also named in the lawsuit for selling the Yeezy clothes.
West’s wife and muse Kim Kardashian was pictured wearing a version of the camo print in January.
According to the lawsuit, a rep from Yeezy contacted Jordan to discuss using the camo patterns, but when the folks at Jordan said Kanye’s company needed to license the items, they went quiet and then without authorization they went ahead and copied the patterns.
Jordan is asking a judge not only for damage, but to stop Kanye’s company in their tracks from continuing to sell the items in question and to turn over and destroy the items that already exist.
