Kim Kardashian slaps Old Navy with celebrity look-alike suit

Socialite sues retailer for using her likeness to peddle its clothes

Oh, the pitfalls of celebrity … Socialite, reality TV star, businesswoman, etc. Kim Kardashian is keeping the presses printing lately, but this time thanks to a lawsuit against retailer Old Navy and its parent company, Gap Inc.

Kardashian has been upset since February when an Old Navy advertisement featuring doppelganger Melissa Molinaro aired, but waited until Wednesday to file suit against the store. The paparazzi magnet argues that the commercial violated her publicity rights given Molinaro’s likeness may have duped viewers into believing Kardashian was promoting the Old Navy brand.
