Hailey Bieber Is Being Sued For Trademark Infringement

Hailey Bieber is being sued for trademark infringement over the release of her new skincare line, Rhode, by owners of a clothing line with the same name.

Hailey launched her latest business venture last Wednesday.

The skincare line is presumably titled after Hailey’s middle name, which is Rhode.

However, just a week after its launch, Hailey has found herself caught up in a legal battle with two cofounders of the nine-year-old fashion brand Rhode.

The clothing line Rhode was launched in 2013 by Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers. 

The business is described as “a lifestyle brand that brings a global sensibility and joyful vibrance” to buyers’ wardrobes and homes.

“Today, we were forced to file a lawsuit against Hailey Bieber and her new skin-care line that launched last week and that is using the brand ‘rhode.’ We didn’t want to file this lawsuit, but we had to in order to protect our business,” they continued.

“We’re confident in the lawsuit’s outcome, but we hope Hailey will now understand the harm we’re sure she never meant to cause and change her skin-care line’s brand,” they concluded.

“Hailey could choose any brand for her skin-care line,” they wrote. “We have only the brand name ‘RHODE’ that we’ve built. That’s why we didn’t sell her our brand when she asked four years ago, and why we ask her now to change her skin-care line’s brand.”
