Rhode NYC co-founders have revealed that Hailey Bieber was trying to get the brand name out years ago.

Lord NYC released an official statement on their Instagram page on June 21st.

The company’s co-founders wrote that they were ‘forced’ to sue Hailey Bieber to protect the brand.

They also confirmed that Bieber tried to buy the company name four years ago. However, the owner refused her request.

Khatau and Vickers say, ‘Hailey can choose any brand for their skincare line. The only brand name we have created is “RHODE”.’

Moreover, the statement also notes that Bieber’s skincare line is ‘harmful’ to the company, including its employees, customers, partners and everyone involved.

TMZ mentioned that they are already starting to face problems on the internet. Social media users trying to tag Bieber’s brand are causing consumer confusion by accidentally mentioning their name.

Lisa T. Simpson, Rhode NYC’s litigation attorney, said, ‘[Bieber] I did it despite knowing Rhode and his previous rights.’

“You can’t create this brand chaos just because you want to write a name,” she added.

They said her company threatened to overshadow the clothing brand because of the model’s reputation.

Rhode NYC is said to have been formed in 2013. Also, some celebrities have previously been photographed in costume. A-ranking figures include Beyonce, Mindy Kaling, and Kelly Clarkson, which increased their credibility.
