Kendall Jenner sues skincare company for $10m for using her face without permission
The 20 year old model is suing a skincare company called Cutera for $10milion with claims that they used her face and name to advertise their Laser acne treatment taking without her permission.
The advert in question features a photo of Kendall and claims their products and treatments improved her skin. The ad reads – “Acne “completely ruined” Kendall Jenner’s self esteem”
TMZ reports that the documents in the lawsuit points out Kendall has been on the cover of fashion magazines around the world, and would typically earn at least eight figures to pose as the face of a product. It also stated that for such an endorsement, she will charge nothing less than $10 million so she wants the company to hand over it’s profits from the advert which better total at least $10million.
Kendall’s lawyer Todd Wilson says,
“The right to associate Kendall Jenner’s name and likeness in connection with a product or service belongs solely to Kendall Jenner and is protected by Federal and State law. Today’s lawsuit by Ms. Jenner against Cutera, Inc., for the unauthorized use of Ms. Jenner’s name and likeness to promote its product should serve notice that Ms. Jenner will vigorously defend her rights under the law.”
