Supermodel Hailey Bieber, who recently introduced her cosmetics brand Rhode, has been accused of plagiarism, TMZ reported.
TMZ reports that her company has been accused of plagiarism by Purna Khatau and Phoebe Vickers, a women's clothing store of the same name that opened back in 2014. What's more, the Rhode NYC brand claims that even Bieber's company logo closely resembles theirs.
The designers insist that Bieber change the name of the company. “We welcome competition — we just don’t want competitors using our name. We, of course, understand that Hailey wants to use her middle name for her brand, but the law on this is clear: you can’t create this kind of brand confusion just because you want to use your name,” the girls said in an official statement on social media. A source close to the Biebers says there can be no conflict, as the companies make completely different products.
