Michael Rhodes, Kim Kardashian’s attorney, spoke to TMZ regarding the claims. He said,

“We think the case is less about the law of trademarks and more about trying to leverage a settlement by threatening to harm Ms. Kardashian’s name and reputation. That’s not going to work and we look forward to presenting our case in court.”

He also claimed that Beauty Concepts ‘didn’t really engage’ with them and just demanded a ‘lot of money.’ He said,

“We applaud Ms. Lunsford for being a small business owner and following her dreams. But that doesn’t give her the right to wrongfully claim that we’ve done something wrong.”

He said that Kim Kardashian’s team did nothing wrong and will stand their ground in the court.
