According to TMZ, Kim's use and promotion of an illuminated smartphone case has been copied by a man who originally invented it, and he says he has receipts to prove it, so much so he's gone ahead and attempted to sue her for US$100 million.
Kardashian's company which trades under Kimsaprincess, Inc. (LOL) was notified about the lawsuit on Monday July 31 – by the original inventor Hooshmand Harooni. He says he received patent back in 2013 for an "integrated lighting accessory and case for a mobile phone device." Which coincidentally sounds a lot like the LuMee case which Kim has made viral in a number of photos posted on her social media.
Harooni licensed his creation to a company called Snaplight, which is now getting buried in sales. Snaplight and Harooni say LuMee stole their technology, and made it difficult by teaming up with a famous influencer like Kim.
Within the court documents, Snaplight reveals Kim is receiving a portion of LuMee's sizable profits.
The company has requested $100 million to cover its lost profits.
