The Kardashians’ never-ending quest for profit has brought them a new and powerful adversary: the entire state of New York!

The Big Apple wants to take a bite out of t-shirt sales by Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom, claiming their logo is a ripoff of one that belongs to the state.

Khloe and Lamar have been given five days to make things right or face a lawsuit from the state, according to the New York Daily News.

Khloe has been photographed wearing the T-shirt, which features the statue of liberty in an emblem that looks very, very similar to one created by New York’s Department of Agriculture.

Of course, Khloe’s t-shirt sells for $35! It is made by Rich Soil, a company she owns with Lamar.

The state sent a legal letter to the company demanding sales of the lookalike t-shirt be stopped instantly and wanting an estimate of how much money the design earned, according to the Daily News.

The News reported:

“The State of New York has invested substantial time, effort and resources creating the respect and goodwill associated with the trademark,” Susan Rosenthal, a lawyer for the Department of Agriculture, argued in a letter sent to Rich Soil on Friday.

Rosenthal said the state will take legal action if Khloe does not comply with the state’s demands.
