Beyoncé Turned Down Offer For 'Blue Ivy' Trademark
A woman fighting Beyoncé over the “Blue Ivy” trademark reportedly asked the superstar to join her wedding planning business.
Veronica Morales opposed Beyoncé’s application to trademark “Blue Ivy Carter” because she believes it infringes on her company’s “Blue Ivy” trademark, which she secured three years before Beyoncé named her daughter.
The Blast obtained documents it claims show that Morales met with Beyoncé’s legal team and proposed ending the dispute by having the singer buy her wedding planning business for $10 million USD.
“Bey’s team says during the meeting, Morales’ counsel ‘gave a long speech’ about treating the opposition as an ‘opportunity for a business relationship rather than an adversarial proceeding,’” reads the report.
Morales reportedly suggested that she and Beyoncé join forces and “begin producing products and goods.”
Queen Bey’s team declined the offer and, according to The Blast, is now trying to have Morales’ Power Point presentation entered into evidence “to prove their position that the entire battle for the trademark is just a grab at money.”
Last June, Beyoncé and Jay-Z filed trademark applications for the names of their twins Rumi and Sir, covering “fragrances, cosmetics, key chains, baby teething rings, strollers, mugs, water bottles, hair ribbons, playing cards, tote bags, sports balls, rattles and novelty items.”
