Ariana Grande Sues Forever 21 For Trademark Infringement

Published: Tuesday 3rd Sep 2019 by Rashad

American fashion retailer Forever 21 announcing their intent to file bankruptcy last week is just one of many financial problems in its foreseeable future if ‘Problem’ singer Ariana Grande has anything to say about it.

The Grammy-winner is making headlines for reportedly filing a trademark infringement lawsuit against the ailing brand in the amount of a whopping $10 million.

More inside:


[Grande’s] accusing the clothing retailer of trademark infringement for stealing her name and likeness to promote its products and a beauty company started by its founders’ daughters.

In a complaint filed in Los Angeles federal court on Monday (September 2), Grande accused Forever 21 and the Riley Rose beauty company of publishing at least 30 unauthorized images and videos misappropriating her name, image, likeness and music to confuse consumers into thinking she endorsed them.

Grande said this followed the February breakdown of talks to create a joint marketing campaign because Forever 21 would not pay enough.


As if that’s not enough, the 25-year-old alleges Forever 21 was deceptive to consumers by hiring a model who looks “strikingly similar” to her and used audio and lyrics from her recent #1 single, ‘7 Rings,’ to help sell its products.

Yikes!  As of time reported, the company has not responded to the accusations.

    Then Mariah should sue Ariana and her team for basing her entire career off of the Mariah comparisons! Bish, sit down and shut up with your basic a$$ music and image! For somebody who’s all about being a woman and in control of your own business ventures, you seem to be quite naive about people using “your style” when you’re in a carbon copy of Mariah’s!

      Ariana owes Mariah a few checks………………………………….God is a Woman is a rip off of Every Mariah Gospel Song. Yes sir boo. Cut da check hunty. Mariah is owed Back Pay for those “runs”

        Oh please, if that’s the case then Mariah needs to start cutting checks to the Whitney Houston estate right now.

    • BLah Blah…make sense when you BLAHHHH September 4, 2019

      YOU are an ASS…..and apparently not very bright…..thats right you DONT have a brand to protect. Also maybe Leona Lewis also owes mooriah a check and also one for whitney…..infact Mooriah needs to cut Whitney a check when she was patterned after her. IDIOTS. Every artist is signed based on some likeness to another successful artist. Maybe Chris Brown, Bruno Mars, The Weekend, Jason Derulo owe Michael Jackson a check, Heck Whitney owes Aretha, PAttie, Chaka a check….IDIOTSSSSSSS.

      LOL that’s just dumb, if that’s the case then Mariah owes the Whitney Houston estate half of her entire fortune if you wanna go there about rip off artists.

    First of all Ari did in fact bite off Mariah’s Anytime you Need a Friend with God is Women in a form of fashion secondly ya would’ve had me if ya said Mariah in facts owes Minnie Riperton Estate a check before Whitney

    • BLah Blah…make sense when you BLAHHHH September 4, 2019

      Minnie Ripperton…influenced her whistle notes……they were trying for years to recreate Whitney’s success in Pop and RnB hence Mariah. Anyhow….a true musician and not fan would tell you what set whitney apart from everyone was her tones, yes she had a booming voice and could sing, but most singers from the 80s, 90s and 2000s could sing….but they never had her tones, mariah came the closest, not even the great so called Beyonce came close (now the BeeHive is gonna attack) she a great entertainer but after a while she sounds like an annoying buzzz saw.

    AriAna has enough money. She should have took what they offered and collaborated for forever 21 and h&m instead she was playing with both of them trying to see who would offer more.

    Ariana Grande Sues Forever 21 For Trademark Infringement for trademark infringement Jazz singer Arianna Grimes took her complaint to the U of L police department and filed a lawsuit against Calvin Johnson, an R&B superstar who is also in The Voice’s stable. They are on record saying that they own “The Real Big Show.” She wants damages from him because she thinks he caused confusion about when his songs were produced and then released as singles so it couldn’t be considered hits during promotions/fame days? Not sure why this song wasn´t included even though there was no evidence or link whatsoever until years later.
