Kardashian Sisters Win Multi-Million Dollar Suit Against Former Beauty Partner

Jul 8, 2021

Rodin Eckenroth/WireImage Long before there was KKW Beauty or Kylie Cosmetics, there was the makeup line Kardashian Beauty. Now, nearly a decade after it launched and following a five-year legal fight, sisters Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian are being paid the amount in full that they claim they were owed for the endeavor. On July 6, a California State Appeals Court judge ruled the Kardashians were rightly owed $11.5 million in royalties from Haven Beauty and subsidiary Hillair Capital—the licensors of the beauty line—as well as $2 million in postjudgment interest and costs on appeal. Launched in 2012, the makeup line—originally dubbed Khroma Beauty—was a licensing partnership with Boldface Licensing + Branding, a company that was later bought by investment firm Hillair Capital. Sold at drugstores and big-box chains, the brand offered a number of products, including fake eyelashes, hair irons and shampoos. Under the five-year deal, the Kardashians, then most famous for their reality television show, would receive a $1 million advance, as well as royalty fees, for licensing the Kardashian name and their images and likeness to the products. But by 2016, as the deal came to a close and the relationship with Hillair degraded, the three sisters had yet to receive millions owed to them in royalties, according to the court filing. The legal back-and-forth began, with Hillair alleging that the Kardashians failed to properly promote the brand. In 2018, a judge sided with the Kardashians for the first time, and another judge upheld the decision earlier this week. The $13.5 million award is chump change compared to the billion-dollar Kardashian machine—and specifically compared to the value of Kim Kardashian West and Kylie Jenner’s new beauty brands. These second stabs at beauty have come to be much more lucrative for the Kardashian-Jenners, in part because the sisters owned all of their businesses from the start, rather than simply collecting royalties. That model paid out when beauty conglomerate Coty purchased a 51% stake in Kylie Cosmetics for $600 million in 2019 and a 20% stake in KKW Beauty for $200 million in January 2021. MORE FOR YOU
