The Kardashians' New Makeup Line Blocked Over Name Dispute
Before Kim, Kourtney and Khloe started hawking Khroma Beauty products -- which were slated to land in more than 5,000 stores this month -- a company called Kroma was quietly selling its own line of cosmetics for the past 10 years. Kroma sued the licensing partner behind Khroma a few months back and now, WWD reports that a judge has issued a preliminary injunction against the Kardashians' line, forcing them to pull the products from shelves. It's bad news for the licensing partner, which has already plunked down a $1 million advance and still has to pony up $4.7 million to $5.2 million in royalties to the Kardashians. But the judge pointed out that if the tables were turned, the Kardashian-free version of Kroma would be put out of business.
