Kim Kardashian Sued for $300-Million Over Kimoji App, But the Case Could Go in Her Favor
Kim Kardashian has always found herself at the center of controversies. From her hairstyles to outfits, she manages to create headlines every time she steps out.
Despite leading a highly controversial lifestyle, the mother of four continuously walks with her head held high and go on with life unbothered by the criticisms and backlash she gets online. As much as she is a successful entrepreneur, the reality star has faced her fair share of legal battles, throughout her career.
Kimoji App Creator
Kim has caught herself in more legal trouble, this time over her widely known Kimoji app, which features the Kardashian-Jenner family’s emojis and GIFs. Earlier this year, the socialite was sued by developer David Liebensohn after she allegedly breached their contract.
He explained that he and other partners created an app called CensorOut, which impressed the reality star, so much so that they teamed up together to create one for her.
Despite not agreeing to the terms, the developer went on to talk to her. When the team created a set of animated emojis of the clan, she allegedly loved it and vowed to work with them on the project.
The 38-year-old asserted that she should be the one to file for a trademark to expedite the process, and despite the red flag, the KKW Beauty mogul reiterated that they were still a team and that the developer and the partners were still part of the deal. So, they reached a 60-40 deal and the collaboration began.
However, in August the same year, right when Kim filed for a trademark, David said the businesswoman was backing out of their deal because one of their partners had been leaking details about the project to a third party. However, he said that the millionaire was well-aware of this before she even entered the agreement.
The developer further claimed that the rich client and her lawyers asked him to withdraw the case but he didn’t budge. Apparently, David was eyeing for a staggering nine-figure settlement, which sounds shocking at first, but if you analyze that the app has been downloaded 9,000 times per second ever since it went live, this might just be logical.
The Blast reported that Kim early this month asked for the $300-million lawsuit to be moved to arbitration, which means proceedings would remain unpublicized.
She filed court documents, debating that the lawsuit was wrongly filed in the state of Oklahoma when it should have been filed in California, citing the harm it could do to her business in the place. Furthermore, the star sought to move it to arbitration.
This time, David had backed away from his federal case against Kim and decided to bring the lawsuit to arbitration, which means a judge will not decide on her initial request. This marks a small victory for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, who recently faced backlash for the name of her Kimono shapewear line.
