Kim Kardashian Receives A Cease & Desist From Businesswoman Over SKKN Beauty Brand, Claims Name Is Too Similar To Her Own Skincare Business

Kim Kardashian Receives A Cease & Desist From Businesswoman Over Her SKKN Beauty Brand, Claims Name Is Too Similar To Her Own Skincare Business

Kim Kardashian may have some legal trouble on the horizon!

Yesterday (Thursday, July 29th), TMZ revealed that Kim Kardashian received a cease and desist letter over the new name of her beauty brand, SKKN. The reality star-turned-businesswoman had filed paperwork to trademark SKKN earlier this month.

However, a woman named Cydnie Lunsford has recently come forward to push the brakes on Kim Kardashian‘s trademark attempt. Cydnie Lunsford owns a skincare business called SKKN+, and she believes that the similar brand names would cause marketplace confusion. Additionally, she claims she filed paperwork to trademark SKKN+ back in March, and the business had been in operation since at least 2018. As such, Cydnie Lunsford is claiming the name is already taken.

Kim Kardashian‘s attorney, Michael G. Rhodes, responded to the matter. He told TMZ:

So, it seems as though the businesswomen’s respective attorneys are due to have a conference call on the matter sometime today (Friday, July 30th). It is unclear whether Kim Kardashian will ultimately have to change the name of her SKKN beauty brand, but it sounds like Cydnie Lunsford is considering taking additional legal action if necessary.
