American media personality, Kim Kardashian has been sued by a developer, David Liebensohn, over her popular Kimoji app.
David Liebensohn says that he helped Kim build the app, only to be cut out of the profits. He’s suing the reality t.v star for $100 million (?36,150,000,000), citing breach of contract and fraud.
According to TMZ, Liebensohn was behind an app called CensorOut and the app helped bring his team to Kardashian’s attention. The developer claims that Kim agreed to cut their company in for 60 percent of Kimojis back in 2014. He said that he was left off of the trademark paperwork for convenience sake, but it was understood that the product was a joint venture.
He claims that Kim backed out of their deal in August of 2014, saying that one of Liebensohn’s partners shared her personal information.
He is allegedly asking for a nine-figure settlement and although that might seem like an incredible amount, it’s worth remembering that the app was downloaded 9,000 times a second on release day, adding up to a million dollars a minute and this was just in one day.
