Kardashian settles advert claim

Kardashian settles advert claim

Kim Kardashian has settled a lawsuit against Old Navy claiming the clothing retailer violated her publicity rights by using a lookalike in an advert.

The reality TV star sued over the ad in July 2011, claiming the company’s use of a model who looked like her might confuse consumers about her actual endorsements. She has her own clothing store and shoe line.

No details about the settlement were filed with the Los Angeles court.

Kardashian’s lawyer said the case was settled to the mutual satisfaction of both sides.

A spokesman for Old Navy parent company The Gap was not immediately available.

Kardashian had been seeking unspecified damages and an order barring Old Navy from using a lookalike model again.
