Blac Chyna may not be married to Rob Kardashian yet — nor is there a wedding date set, as far as we know — but she is ready to be a Kardashian. So much so that she filed to legally trademark “Angela Renée Kardashian” to use while working in entertainment and on social media. Well, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney‘s companies are opposing Chyna’s trademark filing and her lawyer, Watler Mosley, told People he is shocked by the turn of events, claiming that of the “many trademarks” he’s filed for her, “this is the first one that’s ever been opposed.” Um, how many names does Chyna need to trademark?
Mosley believes it’s going to be a “clear case win” for them because it’s “actually her name, it’s not a poaching.” He even claims that he hopes this was all a big misunderstanding and that perhaps an error was made on the part of a junior lawyer who failed to look at “who it’s from or why it was filed.” Ever the optimist, Walter is.
We’re not, though. In fact, we’re pretty sure the sisters knew exactly what they were doing, protecting their name and their brand. Kim, Khloe and Kourtney’s companies claim they willl “suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill” if Chyna takes the Kardashian name. The documents add that Rob’s fiancée is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity” by changing her name.
They have a point. Because here’s the thing: Chyna’s not a Kardashian… yet. Yeah, she and Rob are engaged and have a baby girl but there’s no way the Ks are going to allow the trademark to happen. At least, not without a fight — and that’ll be from both sides. Because while Kim, Khloe and Kourtney are doing what they feel they need to do, being told that your future family doesn’t believe you’re good enough has got to hurt. So you know Chyna’s not going to back down either. Hmm, who’s going to take Round 1?
