One Direction

Sues One Direction

Which Sued One Direction

0622_one_direction_getty_2

First off ... there are 2 bands called One Direction. Second off ... the unfamous One Direction sued the famous One Direction for allegedly jacking the name. Third off ... now the famous One Direction is countersuing the unfamous One Direction, saying the famous band had the name first.

The famous band now claims it has achieved "global fame and success" and some local knock-off is now trying to ride its coattails. The unfamous One Direction begs to differ.

That's pretty much it.

Stand by. TMZ is going to unveil photos of their Latin counterparts "Juan Direction" tomorrow. Sadly, I will have jumped in front of their tour bus by then and won't be here to enjoy the moment.

The members of both groups look exactly the same...Instead of suing each other over the name "One Direction" they should join forces and rename the band.."Traveling in both directions".
