Kim Kardashian, Old Navy settle over commercial starring lookalike

August 29, 2012|By Christie D'Zurilla

Kim Kardashian and Old Navy have settled a lawsuit filed last summer after the clothing chain aired a commercial starring a model-singer-dancer with a striking resemblance to the reality-TV star.

That according to a document filed Friday with the U.S. District Court.

Kardashian claimed the ad might confuse consumers when it came to the products she does endorse, including a clothing line at Sears. Old Navy said that wasn't its intention.

Though no dollar amount was attached to the lawsuit, numbers like $15 million to $20 million in damages were being tossed around in July of last year. So how much did they settle for? Alas, we may never know.

"The lawsuit was resolved to the mutual satisfaction of the parties," the two sides said in a joint statement.

Can you say boring? Oh well, the lawsuit was filed in the realm of reality, not on reality TV, so the chance of fireworks was exponentially lower.

In case it's not enough that both of the involved parties are content while the rest of us sit around unsatisfied in the dish department, we present the video above featuring Melissa Molinaro, the star of Old Navy's "So Cute" ad, in a music video all her own.
