Conclusion: 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 sued by Los Angeles-based company dbleudazzled, who were seeking $10 million in damages after accusing the 36-year-old beauty of ripping off their intoxicated bodysuit designs.
As a result, on May 4, the court was asked to officially close the cast.
Founded by designer Destiney Bleu, dbleudazzled filed a lawsuit in May 2020 alleging they copied her designs and sold them under their brand name without compensating her for the designs.
Destiney is seeking $10 million in monetary damages in the lawsuit, seeking injunctive relief to prevent Khloe and Good American from further infringing, per The fashion law.
The indie brand claimed that Khloe instead used the borrowed items as the basis for her Good American bodysuits.
Legal: However, according to documents obtained by RadarOnline, the Los Angeles-based company has now informed the court that they will no longer pursue their action as a confidential agreement has been reached
The suit alleged that Khloe “purchased and borrowed a large number of Plaintiff’s garments, using the false pretense that the garments were for Kardashian’s personal use.”
They continued, “Instead, months later, Kardashian and Good American launched a new line of Good American bodysuits with better (her) designs, without acknowledging (her) or properly compensating for the designs.
From November 2016 to May 2017, Kardashian, through her assistants, repeatedly contacted ‘individuals on’ dbleudazzled to order at least sixteen custom garments under the false pretense that these garments were for Kardashian’s personal use… On At no time did they at dbleudazzled announce to anyone that they intended to create their own clothing line with similar designs.
“Good American decided it would be easier to reject the tried-and-true designs of an independent designer.”
It started in 2017, spawning a June 2 tweet posted by Bleu that said, “If someone buys 1 of everything on your site, get them custom @dbleudazzled, never post or wear it, copy it.” ‘ – and tagged Khloe.
She also posted photos of Khloe wearing a sheer black bedazzled leotard, alongside a photo of a very similar catsuit from her own line.
Shortly after, Khloe’s team hit back at the allegations via Good American with a letter of termination on June 4, 2017; the brand said that “under no circumstances” had anything been copied and that they were using “legal channels” to address the situation.
Destiney’s legal team sent out a 27-page legal document with receipts, in an effort to refute claims that Khloe and Good American “had never heard of her or her brand,” according to People.
According to her, Khloe had purchased a range of items from Bleu, including “stockings, leggings and tights, bras and panties, and a custom jersey and slip.”

Bleu had revealed that the custom gear ordered was an intoxicated underwear named “Tristan Thompson” – the name of Khloe’s friend. She also posted a clip on Twitter featuring a matching bedazzled basketball jersey of the same name.
Khloe’s legal team later clarified to DailyMail.com that it was the “specific individual designers employed by Good American” who were unaware of Destiney’s work; not Khloe herself.
In response, Good American released a statement via People: “Ms. Bleu’s claim that Good American and Khloe Kardashian copied or stole her designs is blatantly false and is nothing more than a cheap publicity stunt and an attempt by Ms. to get minutes of fame. . Ms. Bleu did not create the concept or design of a crystal bodysuit – a fashion style that has been around for decades, as evidenced by Cher’s wearing these styles for over 25 years. The Good American design team designed a range of eleven bodysuits and had never heard of or seen Ms. Bleu before.”
