Family Affair: Rob Kardashian Accused of Stealing Designs, Pulls Merch

It’s in the name! Rob Kardashian’s clothing line, Halfway Dead, is on life support after accusations that the brand has pilfered designs. Less than a week after launching the company with some assistance from Kylie Jenner, Rob has had to remove several designs from their inventory.

Halfway Dead’s statement

Fans of the independent artist Rx Skulls attacked Rob Kardashian for stealing an integral design from his catalogue. A grinning skull, which is the focal point of Rx Skulls merchandise, was featured prominently on Rob’s gear. Actively promoted on social media, the logo that Rob Kardashian’s brand co-opted was slapped onto hoodies and other items on the website unbeknownst to the street artist. But Rob did the honest thing once comparisons between the brands were made and reached out to the artist to make things right.

It’s foolish to think that he’d have no contact with the graphic designers who crafted the Halfway Dead logo. Still, Rob gathered his team and explained to Rx Skulls how the slip-up occured. While the street artist has taken it all in stride, he only has Rob’s word that the merch won’t be sold. In the meantime, Halfway Dead is going to have to return to the drawing board for original ways to replace the stock.

Strange how this family is continuously accused of stealing from small designers, isn’t it? Do you think Rob had ill intentions? Or was it just a misunderstanding?

Amanda Seales is Not the One

Earlier this week, the ladies of “The Real” celebrated their 1,000th episode. Hosts Loni Love, Tamera Mowry, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, and Amanda Seales happily celebrated the momentous occasion with laughs, tears and a bottle of champagne. 

The celebration continued as the ladies were interviewed by “Extra” correspondent Jenn Lahmers.

During the interview, things became a bit awkward when Lahmers referred to Seales as the “newbie” and began to insinuate that she and fellow co-host, Mai, had “butted heads on a couple of topics.”

Immediately, Seales cut her off saying, “Have we? Stop!” She followed that up by stating emphatically, “That’s’ not the territory we’re coming from. We’re not butting heads. And I think it’s very, very important, especially at a table of diverse women to very clearly delineate the difference between having a difference of opinion than butting heads. You’ll know when I’m butting heads because when I butt heads, there’s only going to be one head standing and as you can see, we’re still here,” as she embraced Mai.

Mai and Seales followed up the quick read with a toast as the other ladies chimed in, fully supporting everything Seales had expressed. 

Earlier today, Seales posted a snippet of the exchange via her personal Instagram page with the caption, “To Gather.

She tried it. Don’t come for me unless I send for you. I am not hostile. I’m passionate. Happy Black History Month ❤️✊🏽”

Seales made her debut as the newest co-host of “The Real” on January 6th.

Rolling Stone magazine hit us with a trifecta of talent for their second annual, Women Shaping the Future issue, out March 3. 

On the cover, sweet-faced Normani, brash in your face Megan Thee Stallion and innocent, doe-eyed SZA are each clad in leather ensembles that match the unique persona’s we’ve come to love. 

SZA burst onto the scene in 2014 with her ep debut, Z. Since then, the singer/songwriter has been featured on chart-topping songs with Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, and Rihanna. 

Megan Thee Stallion grabbed our attention with her summer anthem, Hot Girl Summer, and has been giving us “Hot Girl” vibes all year long with no signs of slowing down.

As for Normani, formerly a member of Fifth Harmony, she’s given us plenty to celebrate as she embarked on her solo career. Just last year, the sultry vocalist collaborated with DJ Calvin Harris and released her first single, Motivation, along with a viral music video.

As we approach Women’s History Month, we’re excited to learn more about how each of these ladies plans to shape the future. 

According to Rolling Stone, “In addition to revealing, in-depth profiles of these three artists, the issue also contains exclusive interviews with Regina King, Stacey Abrams, Natasha Lyonne, and other prominent women in entertainment, sports, politics, and culture.”
