Kim K Sued Old Navy to Protect Sears Deal

7/25/2011 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We now know what's really behind Kim Kardashian's lawsuit against Old Navy -- protecting a HUGE deal the Kardashian clan has with Sears ... sources close to the fam tell TMZ.

As TMZ first reported, Kim filed suit against Old Navy because she felt they were trying to intentionally deceive people into thinking she was a spokeswoman for the company by using a girl who looked just like her in their commercials.

But our sources say ... the suit was filed because Sears felt the Old Navy commercial compromised its ad campaign for the Kardashian Kollection -- an exclusive line of clothing and bedding that launches in about a month and a half. 

We're told Sears execs actually questioned if Kim was part of the Old Navy ads. The company feels the ad creates confusion in the marketplace and that happens to be exactly what Kim needs to prove to win her suit.

Bottom line -- Kim doesn't care about KK wannabes ... but she cares a lot about a deal that could be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Is she going to try to ban anyone who resembles her from ever doing anything in public? Ridiculous. Maybe she should try to get them all to have court ordered plastic surgery.

Yep I said that    

Sears is broke and closing stores, the only things people buy there are appliances and tools, the clothing and linens are crap pretty much like the Kardashians

A lot of older Eastern European women shop at Sears? Sears is desperate to be selling the Kardashian "everything black" husky woman collection. The woman in this add may have resembled Kim somewhat when Kim was 15 yrs younger but Kim now has a plastic Barbie face and huge azz and that is her trademark look now. And the singing and dancing is a clear indication they weren't trying to infringe on Kim's image. Everyone knows Kim has no talent.

Please- there is a WORLD of difference between the two, for example, one is featured on a pornographic video tape and the other, as far as I am aware, is not. She's just pissed because the girl got an Old Navy commercial and she's Reggie whats-his-name's new squeeze. Pea Green with envy on so many levels. What are companies suppose to no longer retain models with dark hair? This is a waste of the courts time, and Kardashian should be forced to pay for it.

Still kicking myself for not going to law school when I turned 18. Then I could have become a judge and let these ridiculous people have it. I would have made Judge Judy look nice.

I can't stand these spoiled, entitled, no talent people. I might sue because there are lots of actors who look like me, ruining my chance of being discovered. Let's sue the kardashiwhatevers cause their dits crap doesn't work or sue them for having a crappy show on tv that teaches my kids to be brats . Come on.

Jus*****ched one of Melissa Milano's music videos. Kim K has EVERY RIGHT to be jealous of her. She is far more beautiful than Kim K could ever hope to be. Reggie definately stepped UP.
