BEYONCE and JAY-Z could lose the lawsuit that they filed to trademark their daughter’s name, Blue Ivy, due to a major complication, according to the latest Hollywood news.
As previously reported, the first-time A-lister parents Beyonce and Jay-Z filed an application to trademark their star child’s name, Blue Ivy, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in late January.
The application comes days after their daughter was born—the bizarre moniker was discovered to be used to name a strain of marijuana and after fashion designer Joseph Mbeh tried to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter NYC.”
But don’t hold your breath just yet. As it turns out, the artist couple could very well lose the chance to make the name a bona fide legal brand… because it wasn’t unique.
Can you believe it? An event planning company—also called “Blue Ivy”—has sued and won the right to keep their name last week.
It’s not yet clear how this will affect the superstars’ official application.
Do you think Bey and Jay-Z will end up trademarking the name?
