Nicki Minaj slapped a pair of boobs on a t-shirt, but that boob design belongs to someone else, according to a lawsuit.
According to TMZ, the self-proclaimed Black Barbie is being sued by Isiah Simon, who’s accusing Minaj and Universal Music Group (UMG) of “brazenly” ripping off his inverted heart T-shirt design.
Simon says Nicki and her label Universal Music Group stole the design for his “I Love Venice Beach” merch, according to the website.
In a side by side photo the site posted, we can see that Nicki’s “I Love Nicki” shirt bears a striking resemblance to Simon’s “I Love Venice” shirt. Both of the “inverted heart” designs resemble a pair of breasts.
Simon explained he copyrighted the design on Valentine Day’s 2015. Simon is reportedly asking UMG to discontinue the shirts on its website and wants the profits from any shirts already sold.
