Kendall Jenner Slapped With Another Lawsuit Over Photo of Tupac and Notorious B.I.G.

The 21-year-old model is hit with a new lawsuit pertaining to unauthorized use of photo featuring Tupac and other famous icons including his bitter rival Notorious B.I.G. and Redman.

AceShowbiz - %cKendall Jenner% has been hit with a new lawsuit from a %cTupac Shakur% photographer. The 21-year-old model is being sued for allegedly using a photograph of the rap icon as well as his bitter rival %cNotorious B.I.G.% on one of her T-shirts without permission.

According to a new report from TMZ, New York-based photographer Al Pereira has filed the suit against Kendall's company after discovering that his image, which also featured another famous face, %cRedman%, had been used as a backdrop for a design featuring the face of the Kendall + Kylie co-owner.

Al Pereira claims in his legal docs against Kendall Jenner Inc. that the model had no rights to use the image on her products without consulting him prior, reveals the news outlet.

As reported back in June, Kendall and her sister %cKylie Jenner% caused controversy when they sold $125 T-shirts that superimposed their faces as well as "KK" logo over photos of music icons that included Tupac, Biggie, %cPink Floyd%, %cMetallica%, %cKiss%, %cThe Doors% and %cBlack Sabbath%.

The next month, photographer Michael Miller filed a lawsuit against Kendall and her younger sister Kylie for using his snaps without permission even though the famous siblings have already pulled the products from their online store and issued an apology at the time.

In a joint statement released via Twitter in late June, Kendall and Kylie said, "These designs were not well thought out and we deeply apologize to anyone that has been upset and/or offended, especially to the families of the artists."

The former Victoria's Secret model went on explaining, "We are huge fans of their music and it was not our intention to disrespect these cultural icons in anyway." She added, "The tee shirts have been pulled from retail and all images have been removed. We will use this as an opportunity to learn from these mistakes and again, we are very sorry."
