Kylie Minogue has won a years-long legal battle against “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star and lip gloss mogul Kylie Jenner.
It all started in 2014, when Jenner tried to trademark her first name in the United States. This meant she would have owned the trademark to any promotional materials that just said “Kylie”.
But Miss Minogue wasn’t having a bar of it. Her legal team sent a letter to the US Patent and Trademark Office to try and stop Jenner getting the trademark.
In court documents, Minogue’s legal team hilariously described Jenner as “a secondary reality television personality” who’s known for “photographic exhibitionism” on social media.
Kylie Minogue is, by contrast, “an internationally-renowned performing artist, humanitarian and breast cancer activist known worldwide simply as ‘Kylie’,” the documents read.
Now the Daily Mail has reported that the Patent Office rejected Jenner’s trademark application last week, but Team Jenner had reportedly already lodged an appeal.
