Kim Kardashian Denies Claims SKIMS Body Tape 'Tore Her Skin Off'

Kim Kardashian Denies Claims SKIMS Body Tape ‘Tore Her Skin Off’

A representative of Kim Kardashian is denying claims made by a woman who says she “ripped her skin” by the mogul’s line of SKIMS body tape.

According to a lawsuit filed Monday, a woman named Noelle Mahasin Smith made the allegation regarding the reality star’s body tape product and is seeking unspecified damages for medical expenses caused by the injuries. TMZ reports.

However, a spokesperson for Kardashian’s SKIMS brand closed the accusation just a day after the lawsuit was filed, claiming that the product Smith had purchased did not come from SKIMS and instead was a “fake tape” purchased at Amazon.

The brand further distanced itself from the product Smith obtained from the online retailer, who they claim is “not an authorized or official retailer of SKIMS products,” the spokesperson said.

“We take feedback from our customers very seriously. Upon further review of this specific complaint, we discovered that the customer purchased what appears to be a counterfeit tape from Amazon, which is not an authorized or official retailer of SKIMS products…”

The spokesperson went on to say that counterfeit items “have become commonplace for the brand” and that they “strongly advise our customers to only shop at SKIMS” or official retail partners, which can be found on their website.

“Unfortunately, counterfeit items have become commonplace for the brand and we strongly advise our customers to only purchase from SKIMS or any of our official retail partners which can be found on our website to ensure they receive authentic, compliant products. with our quality standards.

Lawsuit Seeking Unspecified Damages After Alleged Body Tape Injury

Meanwhile, a representative for Kim’s brand provided TMZ with photographic evidence showing that the tape Smith used did not have the SKIMS markings that set the reality star’s brand apart from the competition and counterfeiters.

Another customer who said they bought SKIMS body tape tweeted footage in 2020 showing what appeared to be injuries caused by the tape, however those claims remain unsubstantiated.

Kardashian’s SKIMS lawsuit comes just months after the skincare product line was sued for trademark infringement.

Then there’s the price difference, as Smith’s purchase was $9.99 for a roll of tape and a pack of 10 empanadas. SKIMS retails for $36 per roll and $12 for a pack of 10 patties, according to the outlet.

The DOWNLOADS website says its body tape is “designed with flexible cotton for maximum breast lift. Lightweight pasties to cover the nipples that keep it comfortably hidden for up to 12 hours.”

It is described as a “soft, flexible, breathable adhesive fabric strip that is designed to make creating the perfect breast shape a breeze for anyone.”

Kim is no stranger to lawsuits, as her skincare line SKKN was accused in June of infringing on the trademark name of a small, black-owned, Brooklyn-based business called Beauty Concepts, which offers salon services under the name “SKKN+”. according to The cut.
