Kim K Suing Old Navy

You Can't COPY Me! [DOCS]

7/20/2011 1:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is only ONE Kim Kardashian -- and now she's declaring a legal war on Old Navy for using a Kim K look-alike in a recent ad campaign ... TMZ has learned.

Kim is filing a lawsuit against the clothing giant  -- claiming they intentionally used a look-alike in an effort to dupe the public into thinking Kim was affiliated with Old Navy.

We're told Kim is especially furious that Old Navy has been tweeting to her page about the look-alike -- in an effort to gain even more publicity.

One of those tweets read, "@CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy's Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?"

We're told Kim believes the copycat campaign has damaged her wallet somewhere in the range of $15 to $20 million.

They definitely capitalized on Kim's look by using this girl. When I first saw I did think that it was Kim K when I first saw the commercial. Whether she's entitled to $15-$20 mil, that's another story.

First time I saw this commercial I thought it was Nicole Scherzinger from the Pussycat Dolls. But I, for sure, did not think it was Kim Kardashian.

$$ $$

Kim is defeating the purpose by suing Old Navy...now they are getting even MORE advertising and now it's FREE!!!

They definitely capitalized on Kim's look by using this girl. When I first saw the commercial, I admit, I did a double take and could tell it wasn't Kim. Yes, she's a little full of herself (a little? okay, alot). I actually heard a few girls talking about going to Old Navy because Kim was in their commercial. Granted, they were 10-11 years old, but still, they saw the resembelence, and that's a hot market for Old Navy...

i mean... they blatantly copied everything about her in a desperate attempt to associate themselves with Kim. I'd be pretty pissed too if some low-quality brand was trying to freeload off the empire i built with no shame. HELL NO!

Kim is obviously mistaken. Her "look-a-like" has very little in common with her. She is actually talented not Kim.

So if someone looks like her, they better not want an acting career because anyone that hires that girl will get sued? Class act.

Ash Ash

The girl has different colored eyes. Last time I checked having long brown hair wasn't trademarked by Kim.

I'm kind of shocked by these posts---I agree Kim is way too full of herself, they all are, but I think she has a point. Old Navy is trying to make money off her image, without paying for it,

There's a problem here    

Hell, if I were Old Navy I'd sue whoever signed off on that commercial. Like people would buy something hawked by that bag of diseased monkey girl. Sounds like a loss to me.

Kim is a spoiled brat who believes her own publicity. Get over it. You're not the only "celebrity" in Hollywood. In fact, you're not even a celebrity.

Whatever.....she nothing to do anyway right?

I don't take this family seriuosly at all. They are completly irrelvant to me. I would never want to walk a mile in any of their shoes, let alone care what they are doing.

Money sure doesn't buy one class and dignity.......clearly.

I think Kim K. forgets that we all know who you are because of your sex tape....remember? THAT was what made you a name....disgraceful.

I wonder how these women sweep it under the rug that we all know what kitty looks like?

How could this add damage her wallet to the tune of $20 million dollars? She´s getting free publicity out of it and doesn´t have to lift a finger. If anything, Old Navy should sue KK for acting like an floozey and damaging their ad campaign.

Nope. She's got a Snooki vibe to her. Or maybe it's the cheap set design. Kim does expensive things in a gaudy way, so there's a difference. Besides, a more interesting story for the public is how each state's AOC rips off the the public. "Bundling." That's much newsier. Sexier too, because the public can now demand it be dismantled. Save California! End the AOC!

She's so delusional! When I first saw that commercial I didn't even think of her! The girl is cuter and looks REAL. Can KIM be anymore in love with herself?
