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,

Kim needs to get over herself. For all we know, that model could just be a spokes model and nothing else, or a clone of Salma Hayak or Penelope Cruz.

OH my Kim K needs to get over herself. She is a very self centered person, and the only genorus things she does is in front of a camera.

Why would anyone buy clothes because a company like ol' nayvee runs an ad wit a lookalike to an armenian woman with a big azz and lots of plastic surgery who azz-fracked a big black dude with a big black schlong, not that there's anything wrong with that, on sexx video they sold on the internet? And someone wrote he peeeee'd on her in the video? Wow, need to buy clothes she wears now! Not! A lot of crazee peeps out there! LOL

She just wants the lawsuit settled before her wedding so that the funds don't count as marital assets. That's all it is. Worried she'll have to split the $20mill with Kris in the next year when they split.

Anyway the old navy attracted poeple who loved Melissa and her amazing talent. Old Navy did not attract Kim fans, Kim fans was making a big war against Melissa, with the help of ETV. There is no matter to say old navy attracted Kim fans, an make money from that. I remember that in found Melissa so talented and funny.

KIM IS IMITATING LIZ TAYLOR AND OLD ICONES OF CINEMA TODAY. THAN LIZ TALYOR CHILDREN CAN MAKE A LAWSUIT AGAINST KIM TO SAY FIRST SHE IS MAKING MONEY FROM THEIR MUM IMAGE AND SECOND SHE IS PUTTING DIRT ON HER GRAVE. THE BEST DEFENSE IS THE ATTACK.

So what's next? Some girl with brown hair with a black man doing porn, is she going to sue them to? I guess she will have to, her brown star is starting to go out. The no talent porn star.

What happened to imitation being the sincerest form of flattery? Is she running short of money to pay for her over the top wedding?

So now this innocent model/actress should be blackballed (pardon the expression) from having any career in the entertainment business because she resembles someone who is already famous? She should never get another commercial, never get a recording contract, never get a television show, because (gasp) there might be a lawsuit? My argument is this: the old navy chick was BORN WITH that face. Kim bought her face from the plastic surgeon. Therefore, the old navy chick should SUE KIM for stealing her look.

At some point Kim is going to have to realize that she's just too full of herself and she will just combust all on her own.
