You’ve probably seen Destiney Bleu’s designs on some of your favorite celebrities. Bleu’s @dbleudazzled works have graced the bodies of everyone from Beyoncé, Shania Twain and Meghan Trainor to Jamie Foxx, and even made their way to shows like Empire, The Get Down and Power. But it seems that in the world of Khloé Kardashian, who Bleu says has purchased her products, imitation isn’t exactly a form of flattery.
Social media was abuzz over the weekend after Bleu said that Kardashian ordered items from her in December, and now, magically, replicas are being used for Kardashian’s Good American clothing designs.
Bleu stated that when Kardashian ordered items, she assumed that Kardashian would be wearing them herself, but it didn’t happen:
Kardashian stans tried to troll Bleu, but the proof is in her Instagram:
“I had stylists friends working on the Good American set and they told me they were shook when they saw her black x nude @dbleudazzled copies,” she wrote on Twitter.
She continued: “Dazzle is my livelihood. I pay 3 rents, 5 employees & handmake everything. I did it w/no investment or guidance, I’ll always fight for this.”
In response to the allegations, of course, the culture vultures at Good American denied copying Bleu’s designs, releasing a statement: “Under no circumstances did Good American or Khloe Kardashian infringe on another brand’s intellectual property and we are going through the proper legal channels to handle the situation.”
The Root has reached out to Bleu and will have her side of the story later on this week. But as with anything having to do with the Kardashians, culture vultures gonna vulture.
