Blac Chyna, the “video vixen” had been dating Robert Kardashian, Jr. since January 2016 and just three months into their relationship the couple announced their engagement on April 5, 2016, via Instagram. In May the couple announced Chyna’s pregnancy with their first child, and on November 10, 2016, their daughter, Dream Renée Kardashian, was born.
The engaged couple is looking forward to using Blac Chyna’s future married name, Angela Renee Kardashian, to trademark her company Lashed LLC. Basically, she is looking to drop her name Blac Chyna and use the trademark married name so she can profit from it in her entertainment business and other businesses, possibly.
This is understandable from the fact that, in May this year, Robert Kardashian and Blac Chyna filed an application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office on behalf of Lashed LLC for the trademark change to what will be her married name, Angela Renée Kardashian.
Now, this has not gone down too well with the Kardashian sisters, Khloe, Kourtney, and Kim, and it wouldn’t be out of context to say that serious infighting seems to be looming large on the Kardashian clan.
According to documents acquired by TMZ (to which PEOPLE also lays claim), the three ‘Ks’, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney fear that if trademark rights are granted to Chyna to use their name, their brand will, “suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill.” The documents have also gone on to state that Chyna is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity” of the Kardashian brand.
The Kardashian sisters have already adopted the legal approach, contesting the trademark grant request by Chyna. Attorneys representing the sisters’ corporations, Khloemoney Inc., 2Die4Kourt and Kimsaprincess Inc. filed papers to formally challenge Chyna’s official request to trademark her future married name.
“Their trademark attorneys automatically oppose anyone trying to trademark ‘Kardashian,” a family source exclusively told the E! News, “I doubt the girls were even aware.”
However, Blac Chyna’s lawyer, Walter Mosely is still hopeful, “it’s just a big misunderstanding.”
But, being the professional that he is, Mosley has claimed that he will “zealously represent” Chyna in the case.
“I filed this trademark with the utmost confidence that it would not be opposed at all. I did not foresee this, but in retrospect maybe I could have, all things considered,” Mosley said. “I’m going to zealously represent my client in a trademark we legally filed and a name that we feel like we own and need to protect” he added.
“She’s not trying to do anything negative,” a source told People. “She wants to trademark the name because it will be her name when she gets married and she wants to protect it. It’s also her daughter’s last name and she wants to share the last name with her daughter.”
We have often heard, ‘family comes first’ – well, it seems for the Kardashians and Chyna (a future Kardashian too) it’s ‘business comes first.’
