Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian & Khloe Kardashian Replies Hillair’s Lawsuit Over Beauty Line
Kim Kardashian West, Khloe Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian were in March sued by Hillair Capital management for breach of contract.
The relationship between the company and Kardashians began in 2014, when the investment firm put $10 million to save their makeup line after its first distributor, Boldface, went “bellyup,” according to Hillair’s lawsuit, People reported.
As part of the investment, the Kardashians were supposed to “actively promote, market and support,” the line, the Hillair lawsuit claims.
However, on Wednesday, the Kardashian sisters replied the firm by filing a court document stating that Hillair had no intention of entering the cosmetics world, but instead “planned to make millions of dollars in exploitative loans to a distressed cosmetics company (Boldface) that had licensed the Kardashians’ names and images for use on color cosmetic products.”
“Rather than take responsibility for its own failings, Hillair filed this frivolous lawsuit, seeking to shift blame to the Kardashians by conjuring up the facially absurd narrative that Hillair, a hedge fund, actually intended to shift gears and go into the cosmetic business,” the Kardashian filing reads.
