theJasmineBRAND.com exclusively reports, there’s new legal drama brewing for the famous Kardashian sisters. Khloe Kardashian is accused of screaming and cursing at her business partners while on a promotional appearance in Dubai for her makeup line, where she allegedly threw a fit with her ex-partners after being displeased with the booth she would be in during the exhibition – and things got so bad the company cancelled her schedule appearance.
Here’s the latest: On August 1st, Haven Beauty headed back to court filing more documents arguing for the restraining order and detailing a meltdown in Dubai where Khloe cursed and screamed at representatives.
They detail the Kardashians repeated violations of their contract by promoting other makeup brands on their social media, apps, as well as in press and media outlets and in personal appearances — despite their deal granting Haven exclusive rights to their likeness and name for cosmetic products.
Haven points out the sisters have promoted and been paid by such brands as Dior mascara, Tom Ford lipstick, MAC cosmetic, L’Oreal Paris, Maybelline and many more. Kim’s app even announced a partnership with Nars cosmetics to celebrate its 2-year anniversary.
They explain after they bought out Boldface, the sisters have refused to promote or make appearances for the makeup line. The contract breaches include refusal to post on social media and failed to make any appearances “with the exception of Khloe Kardashian’s disastrous appearances at the “Beauty World” event in Dubai in May 2015.
They state that Khloe arrived to the exhibition in Dubai and things went south quickly. They claim that she showed up to meet with representatives who were to show her the booth for her appearance and reveal in court docs:
Ms. Kardashian began screaming and cursing, stating publicly that Haven was selling the Kardashian Beauty products illegally and that she hated everything about the Kardashian Beauty products and appearance. Ms. Kardashian’ appearance was therefore cancelled”
Haven is pleading with the judge to grant them a restraining order to prevent the Kardashians from trashing their own brand in the press.
Here’s the backstory: Back in March, the Kardashian sisters were slapped with a $200 million dollar lawsuit by the company Hillair Capital Management.
The company explained they came to the sister’s rescue by investing over $10 million dollars into their makeup line, “Kardashian Beauty”, after their former business partner went under.
Kim, Kourtney and Khloe partnered with Boldface in 2012 to launch a line of products named “Khroma Beauty”, eventually the sisters had to change the name of the line due to legal reasons and Boldface collapsed leaving their new “Kardashian Beauty” in need of an investor. Hillair Capital bought out Boldface and invested the $10 million dollars to save the sisters line.
However, the company filed suit accusing them of not following the terms of their contract by not posting about “Kardashian Beauty” on their social media accounts. They demanded the Kardashian pay up the $10 million they invested along with $180 million for lost revenue and other damages.
That lawsuit was still pending in Federal Court.
Earlier this month, Haven Beauty – owned by Hillair Capital – launched “Kardashian Beauty” and began selling the products without the sister’s approval.
A rep for the Kardashians released a statement in which the sisters blasted the company and claimed they have no involvement in the makeup line. Their reps wrote:
Over the weekend, new cosmetic products were announced on the Kardashian Beauty cosmetic social media pages with pictures and statements from Kourtney, Kim and Khloe. The three Kardashian sisters are not in business with this cosmetic company.
The reps finished by saying,
The people selling the Kardashian Beauty brand and their predatory owners knew this and are attempting to mislead the Kardashians’ fans by stating that the Kardashians are still involved. This outrageous conduct is a legal matter and will be dealt with accordingly.”
Haven Beauty then slapped the sisters with a Federal lawsuit demanding a judge grant them an injunction against the Kardashians from trashing the makeup line in the media.
They claimed that the sisters did have a deal with them to launch “Kardashian Beauty” and they only are claiming otherwise in an attempt to back out of the agreement they made. They sued demanding an injunction along with $10 million from the sisters.
The judge shut down Haven’s motion for a temporary injunction against the sisters, but both parties will soon go before the judge to argue their case.
Haven Beauty filed docs being denied the TRO (temporary restraining order), explaining if the court doesn’t help them stop the Kardashian sisters, it could ruin their entire business which they invested $10 million into, result in laying off their entire staff within 30 days, ruin their goodwill, result in them losing $932k in purchase orders and $260 in deposits for those orders along with disrupt their entire business operation. They say,
In short, Haven would cease to exist.
Further, they blasted the sisters for accusing them of screwing them out of royalty payments. They explain that the Kardashians have not taken any steps necessary for any royalty payments to come due under the terms of their deal.
Haven said the reality stars failed to show up to their production day, marketing day and photo shoots, along with personal appearances. Therefore, they claim they had every right to suspend royalty payments until the sisters complied with their agreement.
The company said,
It cannot be that by simply refusing to perform their obligations under the LA (licensing agreement), the Kardashian(s) can have their cake and eat it too; imposing upon Haven the Hobson’s choice of either … paying the sisters for work they didn’t do or committing suicide by terminating the license and thus destroying their entire business
Haven pleaded for the judge to allow them to seek a permanent injunction against the Kardashians from continuing to trash their makeup line in the press.
