LAWSUITS: Tyra Banks Sues 10 Wig Companies For Using Her Name Without Permission

Mogul Tyra Banks put her Harvard Business degree to use and has filed a $10 Million lawsuit against a group of wig companies who've been trying to capitalize off of her image.

According to TMZ

You can’t go slapping Tyra Banks’ name willy nilly on wigs — not without her slapping back with a massive lawsuit for 10 million dollars … TMZ has learned.

Tyra just filed a lawsuit against 10 companies that make wigs … and in the suit she claims they’re all biting her “name, photograph, image, and identity” — as well as her trademarks.

We don’t know squat about wigs … but did some quick research and discovered several of the companies do have Tyra’s photos and Tyra inspired wigs on their websites.

A few examples: The Yaky straight[Tyra-Banks style] wig, the Tyra Banks custom lace wig #046, and our fave — the Tyra Banks inspired human hair wig. We’re guessing it’s not actually TB’s hair you’re buying … although it does cost $300!

Tyra’s lawsuit spells out just how valuable her trademark and how big a star she is — and to prove it her IMDB profile … all 11 pages of it … are attached to the suit as Exhibit A.

To be fair, the suit does acknowledge Tyra is a “former supermodel.”

TB is suing for an injunction to stop the sale of the infringing products — and at least $10 million in damages.
