Kim Kardashian is being sued by the foundation of late artist Donald Judd over claims she promoted furniture as made by him when he was not.

What Happened

The Judd Foundation – a non-profit honoring the memory of the American artist known for his sculptures and minimalist designs – explains in the lawsuit that the reality star boasted a $90,000 table and a set of chairs worth $9,000 each were Judd originals in a video tour of her SKKN office in 2022.

In the video – which racked up 3.7million views she said: ‘If you guys are furniture people because I’ve really gotten into furniture lately. 

‘These Donald Judd tables are really amazing and totally blend with the seats and they’re so easy we have so many people coming and eating all the time. The kitchen is amazing I’m super organized.’

Did Kardashian knew the furniture wasn’t originals by Judd? It’s unclear.

Details of The Lawsuit

The foundation claims Kardashian got the furniture from a company called Clements Design – also named as a defendant in the lawsuit – and we’re not Judd originals.

KK has since taken down the video after the lawsuit was filed on Wednesday.

The foundation claims the items were ‘knockoffs’ and says because Kardashian claimed they were originals, it misled the public.

The foundation further claims due to the publicity Kardashian’s video got, Judd’s reputation and legacy was tarnished. 

As it is, only three authentic copies of the Judd La Mansana tables have been sold in the past 15 years while 350 Chair 84’s have been sold.

The lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court for the Central District of California reads: ‘Consumers are likely to believe Judd Foundation and the Donald Judd brand are connected or affiliated with, or otherwise sponsored or endorsed Ms. Kardashian.

‘Judd Foundation categorically prohibits customers from using purchased Donald Judd furniture for marketing and promotional purposes.’
