Drake and 21 Savage sued over use of Vogue name to promote new album.
Drake, 21 Savage Sued for Promotions Using Fake Magazine Cover
D rake and 21 Savage are being sued by Condé Nast, the publisher of Vogue magazine, for using a fake magazine cover with the Vogue name to promote their newest album, Her Loss.
The hip hop duo are being sued by Vogue over the fake magazine cover which was used to promote their new album Her Loss, TMZ reports on Tuesday (November 8).
According to a complaint filed on Monday night in Manhattan federal court, Condé Nast stated, “All of this is false. And none of it has been authorized by Condé Nast.”
It added that the false magazine caused “unmistakable” confusion among the public, as several media sources falsely reported as well that the rappers were on the next cover of the magazine.
Condé Nast claimed the musicians’ promotional campaign, including to their more than 135 million social media followers, was built “entirely” on the unauthorised use of Vogue trademarks and false representations that they would appear on Vogue’s next cover, and with the “love and support” of the magazine’s longtime editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour.
Condé Nast is reportedly seeking $4 million in damages.
