Kendall and Kylie Jenner both got into hot water recently when reports claimed that the two sisters sold vintage Tupac music t-shirts. But the reality stars just gave their responses regarding the lawsuit which was filed against them.

According to TMZ, Kendall and Kylie said that there was no violation of anyone's rights since they only sold two of Tupac t-shirts. It can be recalled that in the images, they placed their pictures over images of music gods then sold these things for $125 per piece. It was the photographer of the Tupac Shakur mages who filed a lawsuit against the reality star sisters.

Moreover, Kendall and Kylie both shared that the allegation was baseless but the two faced a lot of backlash.. These shirts which were provided and made available on websites were pulled from their sites. The Jenner's sisters company claimed that the accusation was false even if there were reports saying that they used this Tupac Shakur images without permission at all.

The photographer, Michael Miller said that Kendall and Kylie Jenner wrongfully and misappropriated exploited his work which is the Tupac images. His lawyer also added that his client was able to register his work at the U.S. Office of Copyright.

The photographer also added that Kendall and Kylie's intentions to exploit his works and photography were slammed since the sisters did not even attempt to obtain his authorization or his permission. But still, the reality stars claimed that there was no infringement of rights because they bought the pictures from a company that had been reportedly authorized to license them.

Mail Online claimed that the Canada Inc. which is the licensee manufacturer of the K + K brand products bought some of the vintage T-shirts. These T-shirts have the images of the performer on them. The company did not copy anyone's image or even attempt to exploit Mr. Miller's right.

Then the lawyer of Kendall and Kylie Jenner also gave his statements and said that they had no role in making the shirts. He even compared this lawsuit to suing an actor for being in a movie.
