The model is suing a skincare company for $10 million (USD) over an advertisement. Alicia Powell reports.
Kendall Jenner, a model and one of the stars of reality TV show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” is suing a skincare company for at least $10 million (USD), claiming it used her photo in an advertisement without permission.
The ad quoted the 20-year-old as having once said acne had “completely ruined” her self-esteem, and claimed her now “nearly flawless skin” was the product of visits to a dermatologist for Laser Genesis treatment.
Legal documents say “Ms. Jenner’s actual endorsement for a worldwide campaign such as this would command a fee well into eight figures… Setting aside the monetary value,” it added, “it is Ms. Jenner’s choice whether or not to commercially endorse another party’s goods and services.”
