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.

Jessica Jessica

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,

Kim K's problem with this commercial probably stems from the girl in the Old Navy ad is a lot prettier than she is.

Something to think about... There wasn't a law suit until the Old Navy (*****cat Doll look alike) started dating Reggie Bush, so Kim who are you really mad at???

I knew immediately that the Old Navy actress was not Kim K because she seemed to be able to sing and dance and act. Kim K is not capable of any of these. Thusly, there can be no confusion. Why doesn't she sue all the no talent celebrity children who are releasing sex tapes in the hope of becoming famous? In any other generation she'd be considered the prostitute she really is.

So this girl can't work because she looks like Kim K.? That's bull!

Anyway, everyone knows what this lawsuit is really about. The Old Navy commercial in question has been out for over 6 months. There's no way she couldn't have heard of it before. Kim K. brought the lawsuit because the Old Navy lookalike is dating her ex, Reggie Bush. She's just mad because Reggie's found a stacked brunette who looks like her, but doesn't have all the drama and a camera stuck up her but 24/7.

Old Navy never claimed it was Kim K. Besides, the one they used looked much better.

Get a Nose Job, please!!!    

Kim is such a Narcisstic Bitch. The Old Navy girl is much better looking and doesn't have the Enormous Butt Kim has.

I dont think she looks anything like kim. I thought it was nicole from the *****cat dolls. Kim is truely full of herself. Nobody would have known who she if it wasnt for the sex tape. Why is she always trin to sue sumbody. You can not be hurting for money that bad.
