Report: Madonna Sued By Fitness Brand Over ‘Hard Candy’ Name

Published: Monday 9th Jun 2014 by David


‘True Blue’ performer Madonna has been sued by beauty and fashion company ‘Hard Candy‘ this month, doing so after accusing the icon of maliciously using their name to sell exercise DVDS and clothing.

Full story below!

Contact Music reports:

The case claims the 55-year-old singer began selling her goods under the Hard Candy name in 2011 despite a previous rejection from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

Federal court papers obtained by state: ”Defendants’ actions have caused and will cause Hard Candy, LLC irreparable harm for which money damages and other legal remedies are inadequate.

”Unless Defendants are restrained by this Court, Defendants will continue and/or expand the improper activities alleged in this Complaint and otherwise continue to cause great and irreparable harm and injury to Hard Candy, LLC.”

The lawsuit also targets Madonna’s manager Guy Oseary, but claims the ‘Material Girl’ singer is ”the driving force behind the infringing activity, taking credit herself for the initial selection and subsequent expansion.Hard Candy are seeking financial damages and for Madonna to stop using their name completely.

Her fresh legal drama comes six years after the singer released her eleventh studio album of the same name via Warner Bros, moving 100,000 units on its release date and going on to move a further 118,000 units before the end of its opening week.

The singer is yet to respond to the lawsuit.

      Weakest performance of ‘VOGUE’ in Madonna’s career.

      • LovebirdTGJ June 9, 2014

        I thought it was pretty good. Which one would you say is the strongest?

      • Suicide Blonde June 9, 2014

        Best ‘VOGUE’ performance: The Blond Ambition tour or the Reinvention tour.

    I have nothing to say but Madonna is the Queen of Pop. She is a touring force. She slays. Good luck MDNA.

    Madonna – Queen Of Pop
    Lady GaGa – Princess Of Pop

    • Suicide Blonde June 9, 2014

      Britney earned that ‘Princess of Pop’ title, i think the new generation must find new honorifics nicknames to their Idols, after all, the medias and fans were responsable for those titles.

    • XYZ June 10, 2014

      Girl, Lady Gaga is the court jester of pop…

  6. Suicide Blonde June 9, 2014

    I guess they gonna sued others brands named ‘Hard Candy’ as well. I think is really funny that there are lots of fresh news about Madonna and her new album, like new producers, the possible new single, but Thatgrapejuice only reports about this, which is pretty much irrelevant to me but wait till the album comes out, the hate campaing and the millions of post about how over she is, similar to what they are doing to Mariah now, any old commentator must remember how they treated her like s*** during the MDNA era, even with the success of the tour, but Beyonce and Janet are untouchable to them.

    • IStanForYourFav June 9, 2014

      Awww. Yes they will. But luckily you can’t away from these people’s legacies regardless of what they do. How long have you been on this site?

      • Suicide Blonde June 9, 2014

        I started to comment in early 2011, it was better, lots of cool people, now is full of trolls (no shade intended) to the newbies.

      • IStanForYourFav June 9, 2014

        Awww. I went to an older thread and it seemed like you all could be real life friends. There also was more comments and w/o , the shade. I’ll promise from this point on to be nice and sweet and never shade unless someone is in my reply box. Spread love not hate. ♥♥ *grabs tissues* lol.
