The Kardashians' Companies Reportedly Don’t Want Blac Chyna To Trademark "Angela Renee Kardashian"
In the latest episode of Blac Chyna vs. the Kardashians, Chyna reportedly wants to trademark the name "Angela Renée Kardashian," but Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé are, also reportedly, not having it. According to TMZ, "companies" for the sisters K are opposing the trademark, claiming that Chyna is "deliberately seeking to profit from the goodwill and popularity" of the name. In documents TMZ claims to have obtained, the Kardashians allegedly claim that they will "suffer damage including irreparable injury to their reputation and goodwill." Bustle has reached out to reps for the Kardashians and for Chyna for comment, but has not yet received a response.
However, according to a People source, the Kardashians aren't exactly as involved in this situation as you might initially think. In fact, according to the People source, they could be unaware that this is even going on.
"The Kardashians own their trademarks in most categories worldwide, and the trademark attorneys’ standard practice is to oppose anyone who tries to file anything. They probably didn’t even know it was happening," the People insider stated.
E! News also reports that while documents have been filed, this was done by the companies and not by the sisters themselves.
As for Chyna, according to a different People source, "She’s not trying to do anything negative. She wants to trademark the name because it will be her name when she gets married and she wants to protect it. It’s also her daughter’s last name and she wants to share a last name with her daughter."
While there seemed to be endless drama between the Kardashians and Blac Chyna at various points in her relationship with Rob Kardashian, it looked like all was good once baby Dream was born. Let's hope that regardless of what's going on with this trademark situation all sides continue to ease up on the drama and double down on the love — because all parties are stuck together for life, now that there is a child involved.
