Last year’s Kendall + Kylie collection featured shirts with images of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G on them which didn’t go well for the label’s founding sisters. The shirts which had the pictures of the two deceased artists were slammed on social media so much so that the Jenner girls had to pull them off their site.
Kylie and Kendall really put their faces/logos overtop Biggie and Pac pictures and are trying to sell it for $125. I don’t even have words. pic.twitter.com/IhbJMkUg2E

Not only were fans unhappy with those shirts but the shirts brought in legal trouble in as well. However, according to a report by TMZ a suit that had been going on for a year now, in this connection, has been settled and the case has been closed. Photographer Michael Miller had sued Kendall and Kylie for copyright infringement.
Miller said that they had ‘misappropriated and wrongfully exploited’ his work. However, he has now dropped the lawsuit as an agreement has been reached that requires both parties to cover the costs of the legal fees. It is not yet known if Miller has been paid or not.
Kendall and Kylie had said that ‘no infringement or violation of anyone’s rights’ had occurred. They continued to add that “Canada Inc, the licensee manufacturer of the K + K brand, purchased a very small quantity of vintage T-shirts with performer images already on them.” Tupac’s family was also angered by this move whereas Biggie’s mother had sent the ladies a cease and desist letter. While Miller has discontinued the suit, the legal battle with Biggie’s family continues.
An Instagram post that was shared by his mother, Voletta Wallace read, “I am not sure who told @kyliejenner and @kendalljenner that they had the right to do this. The disrespect of these girls to not even reach out to me or anyone connected to the estate baffles me. I have no idea why they feel they can exploit the deaths of 2pac and my Son Christopher to sell a t-shirt.”
