Kylie Jenner is getting called out for her lack of creativity behind her famous cosmetic brand, but her apology may have come a little too late for the artist she allegedly stole from!
A California artist named Vlada Haggerty is finally getting the recognition she deserves for giving Jenner “inspiration” for the look of her cosmetics line.
According to previous reports, the photographer, who has a half-million Instagram followers, slapped the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star with a lawsuit last November for copyright infringement.
The trouble began when the 19-year-old reality star posted a photo on Instagram that contained a set of dark red lips and gold fingers dipped in gold paint, covering her eyes. It wasn't long before Haggerty was made aware of the duplication ripped straight from the Haggerty's Instagram page.
However, that wasn't the first time Jenner was accused of stealing her artwork. Jenner's famous dripping lips was the piece that originally sparked the fire for Haggerty.
"It breaks my heart to see how large brands take independent, unprotected artists' work and use them to multiply their wealth," Haggerty told one blog. "In an ideal world, big brands would easily prevent such backlashes by hiring the artists who have already created something they would love for their own campaigns."
Since then, it appears Jenner has finally come clean about snatching the artwork. Tyga's girlfriend re-posted the same dripping lips collage that she go her in trouble last year, but this time giving a special call out to Haggerty: "This is everything. Check out the wonderful makeup art of @vladaumua!"
As RadarOnline.com reported, this isn't the first time Jenner has been dragged into a legal nightmare with her makeup brand. Earlier last year in April, her factory's employees blasted her for the lip line's ingredients making them sick . Then, another bombshell came around the bend when Jenner was again blamed for ripping off her lip kit formula.
