Rob Kardashian Accused of Copying Designs, Forced To Pull Parts of New Clothing Line
For the last several years the only boy of the Kardashian family, Rob Kardashian, has kept a decidedly low-profile—and recent reports probably won’t encourage him back into the spotlight. Kardashian is accused of copying designs from his recently launched clothing line Halfway Dead.
Rob Kardashian’s five super famous sisters and mom are used to dealing with all the attention (both positive and negative) that comes with their stardom. However, it appears to have had the opposite impact on him, causing him to retreat to the point of becoming reclusive. Unfortunately, this latest bit of news is bringing his name back to the spotlight is far from positive.
Last week, Kardashian officially launched his new clothing line Halfway Dead—but now he is accused of ripping off some of his designs from clothing brand Rx Skulls. The situation got so intense that Kardashian reportedly pulled the items in questions from the brand’s website.
The pulled items include an orange hoodie and pins that featured a skull design that was very similar to the one originally created by Rx Skulls.
Inside sources say that Kardashian and Rx Skulls settled the matter privately, but Halfway Dead released a statement on the matter via Instagram Stories that read:
“I hate to even have to explain ourselves but we traced this skull above. We showed this to the artist who accused us of stealing his art and after seeing where we got it from he deleted his post about it. We both moved on and out of respect of the art being similar to his we are not releasing this graphic. We at HWD are artists who have been in the industry for over a decade and wouldn’t purposely copy anyone else’s original art.”
In addition to Halfway Dead, Kardashian also has a sock brand Arthur George, which is primarily run by his mother, Kris Jenner.
