Kendall and Kylie Jenner sued over Tupac T-shirts

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS / JAN. 8

    Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner are being sued for copyright infringement. Photographer Michael Miller’s suit states the Jenners never sought permission to use his photos.

LOS ANGELES >> A commercial photographer has sued Kendall and Kylie Jenner over the use of two of his images of late rapper Tupac Shakur that were used on T-shirts the sisters briefly sold for $125 apiece.

Michael Miller sued the Jenner sisters in a Los Angeles federal court today for copyright infringement over the “vintage” T-shirts that featured their likeness or designs superimposed over photos of famous musicians. Miller’s suit states the Jenners never sought permission to use his photos.

The sisters’ brand Kendall + Kylie stopped selling the shirts last month after Ozzy Osbourne’s wife and the mother of the late rapper Notorious B.I.G, criticized them.

Emails sent to the Jenners’ publicists were not immediately returned today.

Miller is seeking at least $150,000 apiece for the use of his photos.
