Blac Chyna’s Lawyer Responds To The Kardashians Lawsuit With “Classy Shade”
Yesterday, it was reported that The Kardashian sisters are opposing Blac Chyna‘s request to trademark “Angela Renee Kardashian.” The documents state that if Blac Chyna gets the trademark they’ll “suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill,” and that the model is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity” of the Kardashian name.
It seems that those words didn’t sit right with Blac Chyna or her lawyer, Walter Mosley, who has addressed the documents:
“The Kardashians, like Angela and my other clients are very protective of our marks, I think for us this is going to be a clear case win, because it’s actually her name, it’s not a poaching. I would hope that this is just a junior lawyer’s error, who’s just responding to everything and not really looking at who it’s from or why it was filed. There’s a softer side of this where Angela has to have a conversation with her family. But until I hear otherwise, I’m just going to proceed as I normally would with a lawsuit. I have 40 days to respond.”
“I have to respond to the notice of opposition, so the way this works is we filed the mark, it was initially unopposed, it was published and then the representatives of the sisters’ companies filed an opposition to Angela owning her name. Sure, it’s not her legal name now, but it is certainly her stage name — her next stage name and her legal name once the wedding is done. In the complaint they are not short or shy as to how they feel about Angela using the trademark. I’m hoping that it’s just a big misunderstanding but I’m just proceeding as if it’s not and am going to do the best work I can for my client.”
Though there have been rumors of fighting between the family and Blac Chyna, everything seemed to be quite fine. Just like to many fans, this opposition also came as a shock to Walter and Chyna as well:
“Everything has been fantastic between her and the family to the best of my knowledge, so this is a shock. Thus, I’m under the belief that it’s a misunderstanding. I don’t know how this plays out any other way. There’s a whole process that went on like anyone else does. So again, I’m hoping this just goes away once they see what it is. Angela, Rob and Dream are doing amazing, wonderful and things couldn’t be better.”
