Nipsey Hussle’s estate is suing alleged counterfeiters for selling fake merchandise. And they want it stopped…now.
Nipsey Hussle’s Estate Seeking Damages
The Late Nipsey Hussle’s estate is worth an estimated 4.1 million dollars.
Looking to cash in on his name are various fake bootleggers trying to sell items with his branding.
As you recall, Hussle died on March 21, 2019, at the age of 33 years old by gunshot.
And it all went down right in front of his store in Crenshaw, called Marathon.
The late rapper’s brother Samiel Asghedom is also the estate’s administrator.
Asghedom filed suit in federal court against several entities that the estate believes are behind a bunch of e-commerce websites selling knockoff Marathon-related clothing, according to TMZ.
Some of these counterfeiters are thought to be in cahoots with each other and coming out of China.
To cover their tracks, they are using different operating systems and domain host sites.
Among the logos owned by the estate is the “Crenshaw” logo which appears on his clothing line. Additionally, another clothing line is called “South Central State of Mind”.
However, these knock-off websites are accused of illegally using these logos without permission.
We’ll see how all this plays out.
