Kim Kardashian Sues Old Navy for Model Look Alike
Reality Star, Kim Kardashian is not feeling the "Super C-U-T-E" ad featuring her model look alike, Melissa Molinaro. Kim is filing a lawsuit against Old Navy for intentionally using a look alike in their ads to get the public to think she was endorsing the brand. However the ad does play off Kardashian's fame with the model singing “This is real life/ I’m not posing for a magazine,” before being followed by the paparazzi while doing day-to-day tasks such as hair appointments, walking the dog, ie the mundane things that Kim does on her reality.
Old Navy even acknowledged that Melissa Molinaro looked like Kim Kardashian, and according the BET tweeted the following :"Breaking News!! @CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy's Super CUTE star looks like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?"
She believes that the campaign has generated $15 to $20 million dollars and she wants that money back. According to TMZ she is furious that the company tweeted about the look alike and gave her more publicity. Although Melissa Molinaro was rumored to be dating Kardashian's ex , Reggie Bush, the actress says that the resemblance is coincidental and pulled out the casting call description in an interview with E! news to prove that Old Navy wasn't trying to cast a Kim doppelganger. The description reads : "looking for a true dance pop superstar...this performer has an experimental vocal style that borrows influences from music legends such as Prince, David Bowie and Madonna. Wardrobe: think Prince, Lady Gaga, Madonna and David Bowie.”
Does that sound like Kim? I think Kim Is mad because Melissa can actually sing and dance.
Watch the ad and you decide!
