KHLOE Kardashian is reportedly being sued for sharing photos of model Bella Hadid wearing her Good American range.
The KUWTK star is allegedly facing a federal lawsuit from Alo Photography, a company that claims they own the rights to the shots of Bella from February 2017.
Khloe had shared side-by-side photos of Bella wearing a leather jacket and a pair of distressed black Good American jeans while leaving a building.
The 37-year-old posted them on Instagram at the time, writing: “My baby @bellahadid is rocking her @goodamerican denim!! I love you Bella baby."
Bella, 25, had replied with a crown and red heart emoji, adding, "Love YOU!!!"
Alo Photography is suing Khloe and Good American to recover damages for "copyright infringement", according to court filings obtained by InTouch.
They are alleging that Khloe used the photos without permission or authorization to "promote" her business on her account, which now has almost 200million followers.
“Upon information and belief, the infringements increased traffic to the account and, in turn, caused the defendant to realize an increase in its merchandise sales [for Good American],” the documents state.
They added that “a large number of people have viewed” Khloe's alleged unlawful copies of the photos.
Khloe has since removed the images from her Instagram page.
Alo Photography is seeking an injunction to ban Good American from using any of their photos on their social media accounts in the future, in addition to the profits “attributable to the infringements” in 2017.
Khloe co-founded Good American in 2016, with the aim of providing denim to women of all "different shapes and sizes".
Since starting out in jeans, the mother-of-one has expanded into shoes and bodysuits.
The E! star often poses in her own skimpy designs and last week showed off her figure in a sexy latex Good American bodysuit.
Khloe also wore the brand in her Cosmopolitan shoot, in which she admitted to struggling to cope with trolls.
The reality star told Cosmo UK: "I have my days. There are definitely times that I’m like, 'I don’t give an a** about anything.’
“I have this great ability to block everything out. Then I have times where I struggle and I can’t drown out the noise, and I get mad at myself for not being able to. It’s a vicious cycle.”
