Shahs of Sunset star Asa Rahmati has shown viewers the process behind launching her own water bottle company — but what they haven't seen is that her entire company is in jeopardy after being slapped with a trademark lawsuit in federal court — and has all the exclusive details.

In Oct. 2013, Gastroceuticals, LLC filed a lawsuit against Rahmati's company, Diamond Water, LLC, demanding a jury trial and claiming they own the federally registered trademark "Dymund" in accordance with their water bottles and are asking Rahmati's competing company to cancel their all-too-similar trademark.

According to the court docs, the name of her water bottle company will cause confusion with their water bottle name, Dymund, ultimately causing harm to the success of their business.

The plaintiff's are asking for an unspecified amount in damages, but are also seeking attorneys' fees, punitive damages, costs of the suit incurred herein and any other relief the court deems just.

On Jan. 7, 2014, Rahmati fired back, denying all infringement on the trademark.

Celebrity Justice

"Diamond Water generally denies any and all allegations, speculation, factual assertions, and claims for relief made by Plaintiff in its complaint except those expressly admitted below," the response reads.

Rahmati, 37, maintains she lawfully owns trademarks for both Diamond Water and Asa's Diamond Water and that consumers will not confuse them with "Dymund" -- which isn't even well-known or famous to the general public.

Diamond Water is asking that the lawsuit be dismissed and their legal bills be paid for by Gastroceuticals, LLC.

A federal court judge has yet to rule.
