    Khloe Kardashian has reached a settlement with a designer who accused her of stealing her work

    The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star and her clothing company Good American had been subjected to legal action from Los Angeles-based firm dbleudazzled, who were seeking $10 million damages after accusing the 36-year-old beauty of ripping off their bedazzled bodysuit designs


    However, according to documents obtained by RadarOnline.com, the firm have now informed the court they will no longer be pursuing their action as a confidential agreement has been reached.

    As a result, on 4 May, the court was asked to officially close the cast.

    dbleudazzled, which was founded by designer Destiney Bleu, had filed the lawsuit in May 2020, accusing Khloe and her team of borrowing several items to wear, but they claimed the reality star instead used the items as a basis for her Good American bodysuits.

    The suit argued Khloe had "purchased and borrowed numerous pieces of Planitff's clothing, user the false pretense that the clothing items were for Kardashian's personal use.”

    They continued, "Instead, months later, Kardashian and Good American launched a new line of Good American bodysuits better (her) designs, without acknowledging (her) or properly compensating for the designs.

    "From November 2016 through May 2017, Kardashian, through her assistants, repeatedly contacted Ms. Lewis and others at dbleudazzled to order at least sixteen made-to-measure garments under the false pretense that these garments were for Kardashian's personal use...At no time, did they disclose to Ms. Lewis or anyone at dbleudazzled that they were planning to create their own clothing line with similar designs.

    "Good American decided it would be easier to knock off the proven designs of an independent designer."

    In response, Khloe's legal team insisted the idea she had stolen designs was "flagrantly false".

    And the lawyer slammed the lawsuit as nothing more than a “cheap publicity stunt and an attempt by Ms. Bleu to get her 15 minutes of fame.”
