'It could destroy my business!' Kardashian sisters are sued for 'stealing name' of $6m cosmetics line from make-up artist


Not as smart as she thinks? Kim Kardashian 'came up' with the name of the Khroma line but is now being sued

It looked like they were onto yet another money-spinning winner when they launched their own cosmetics line.
But it looks like the Kardashian Klan could be left with an expensive legal bill after they were sued for allegedly stealing the name for Khroma Beauty, for which they are guaranteed to make up to $6.2 million.
Make-up artist Lee Tillett is seeking $10m in damages from the sisters and Boldface Group Inc, which markets their line.

Triple threat: Each of the sisters has products in the line and they are all being sued

She claims it infringes on her Kroma Make-up line, which she founded back in 2004.
Florida native Miss Tillett told the Orlando Sentinel: 'I developed the Kroma line myself, built my business through my own hard work, and took the legal steps necessary to protect it.
'And yet I have now been forced into legal battle with the Kardashians simply because they have decided to take something that doesn't belong to them.'
It is the latest move in a legal tussle that began when she sent a cease and desist letter last July urging them to stop using the name.

In response Boldface petition a California federal court to get a judgement the name Kroma 'consists solely of a descriptive term and lacks any inherent distinctive meaning to the relevant consuming public and therefore is conceptually weak.'
On the Kroma website it states the word means colour in Greek, but adds how Miss Tillett used her
22 years (experience) of creating looks for thousands of women' and 'personally selected all of the shades and has personally made all of the formulas.'
