As soon as Hailey Bieber‘s skincare line dropped down, trouble started brewing for the model. Landing in a legal soup, know what the lawsuit is about?

The Canadian Pop star, Justin Bieber’s wife, Hailey Bieber, got into legal trouble because of its name. She has been sued under a trademark infringement case for the Rhode Skincare line launched earlier this month. 

A lawsuit was filed against her by Purana Khatau and Phoebe Vicker, two of her former college roommates who created a line of clothing under the Rhode trademark. The lawsuit filed against her claims that she is trying to create marketing confusion by taking up the same name. According to the reports, the lawsuit was filed in the Manhattan federal court. The plaintiffs have asked the judge to impose trademark infringement and prevent Hailey from selling or marketing any products under the same name, Rhode.

Hailey recently launched her skincare line on social media and introduced the brand captioning “We are a line of curated skincare essentials made with thoughtful intention. our formulas nourish your skin barrier to instantly give you dewy, delicious skin while improving its look and feel over time.”
