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.

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,

Hey, take it easy. I'll admit I've walked by an Old Navy store when I go to the mall.

They seem to have some nice stuff.

Kim K's ego is far too large. She wants to put any model who looks remotely like her out of work. Kim, get over yourself. Kim needs to apologize to the models she is attempting to make unemployable.

How exactly did this damage her wallet? I think she just filed a lawsuit out of jealousy because her "lookalike" is dating Reggie Bush.

I'm always stunned when I read all the nasty comments about Kim. Clearly written by either jealous woman or men who KNOW they could never date someone as gorgeous as Kim. I would be honored to have someone like Kim for my daughter. Yes, there was a sex tape, obviously Kim didn't WANT it released. She was devasted. What do you all want her to do? Go hide under the covers for the rest of her life? She turned it around into something positive...and learned from her mistake. Good for her. I wish her and Kris a long, happy loving life together. God Bless!

Oh Kim, GET OVER YOURSELF! You're just jealous because the Old Navy chic is naturally pretty & your just a big botox/restylane/saline/butt implant bimbo. Are you gonna sue Reggie too since he is dating her now??!! Cause he totally must be dating the Old Navy chic because she looks exactly like you....NOT! lol
