The Kardashian family—sans Rob—has opposed Blac Chyna’s request to trademark her new name.
Following her marriage to Rob Kardashian, Chyna wants to be legally called Angela Renée Kardashian, but not so fast say the Kardashians, who are protecting their brand.
The 28-year-old's lawyer Walter Mosley told People that of the many trademarks he’s filed for her, “this is the first one that’s ever been opposed.”
“I think for us this is going to be a clear case win, because it’s actually her name, it’s not a poaching,” he said.
Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian had a tough time coming around to Chyna dating their brother Rob, and then she got pregnant with his baby.
The Kardashian clan wants to make sure Chyna is on brand, and that a deep discussion will resolve any issues concerning her name change.
“The sisters' documents blocking Chyna's trademark application alleged that the trio would 'suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill' should the proposed name change go ahead,” says the report.
They claim Chyna is “deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity of the Kardashian name.”
“I would hope that this is just a junior lawyer’s error, who’s just responding to everything and not really looking at who it’s from or why it was filed,” Chyna’s lawyer said.
Chyna’s real name is Angela Renée White. She filed her trademark application months before she welcomed daughter Dream with Rob on Nov. 10.
