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.

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,

Hoopee    

I honestly wish this chick would go through something that would permanently scar her face forever. I'm not into violence in the least, but I sure would like to see this attention whore look in the mirror and see FRIGHT!

The only reason she's suing Old Navy after the commercial was released almost 2 months ago and only shown for a couple of days is that Reggie Bush is dating the Kim look-a-like chick and it's driving Kim NUTS. She's so jealous she can't stand it. Yeah, she's getting married but it's all a stunt for publicity and to make money. With reports of her being offered over $4million by E! to get exclusive rights to film the wedding, that's the only reason she's getting married.

I hope she becomes a homeless crack whore and we can stop seeing her narcissistic ass on TV. She makes me want to projectile vomit.

Of course she's claiming 20 million in damages. She needs someone to pay for her fake tv wedding. Too bad she doesn't realize that people have had enough of her and her family's stupidity. TMZ, stop giving this idiot any time on your website or tv show. We the people haven had enough.

Maybe everyone should boycott anything TMZ until they get the point.

I do beleive that Kim is going to win her lawsuit, remember Mastercard card lawsuit, and remember OJ Simpson. I do think that is like a inexplicable ability to win the lawsuits.

Dear Old Navy. YOU DO NOT---and I repeat DO NOT need a spokeswoman who is or even remotely resembles a person who made their money by making a nasty sex tape. Just as I botcott Sketchers (and anything else affliated with Kim K) I will boycott you as well.

She never had a really big fun base who can buy everithing she endorse, than she is realising that she doesn t earn enough money from her product, than a lawsuit is going to make her a fortune,
Who is going to buy her products.
