Pop icon Beyoncé Knowles-Carter now says her first born daughter Blue Ivy is a ‘cultural icon’ amidst court battle to trade mark her name.
According to international press, the singer is currently embroiled in a trademark war with a wedding planner over the name Blue Ivy.
The wedding planner, Wendy Morales owns an events planning company with the same name.
Beyoncé now claims people will get confused between her company and her daughter.
According to court documents, Beyoncé claimed that she should be allowed to trademark her daughter’s name as she is cultural icon.
“Consumers are likely to be confused between a boutique wedding event planning business and Blue Ivy Carter, the daughter of two of the most famous performers in the world, is frivolous and should be refused in its entirety.” reads part of the documents
Beyoncé also threw shades at Morales, saying she runs a small business, with just three regional offices and a handful of employees adding that Morale’s company has a weak online platform.
Beyoncé and her husband rapper, Jay-Z, first applied for the trademark seven years ago when baby Blue was born but had lost the application and have been trying ever since.
Beyoncé also points out that her trademark application is for “Blue Ivy Carter” NOT “Blue Ivy” which Morales’ business has been using.
