Beyonce Sues Texas Company over Feyonce Branded Merchandise


Credit: Robin Harper Beyonce is not happy with anyone attempting to profit from her using her name.

Citing documents filed Tuesday in Manhattan federal court, the U.K.’s Daily Mirror reports that the singer is suing a Texas company for “brazenly” selling stuff online bearing the name “Feyonce,” which she claims is too close to her own trademarked name.

The complaint points out one item in particular: a $14.95 mug with the phrase “He put a ring on it,” which Beyonce said directly references the lyrics of her 2008 hit, “Single Ladies.”

In addition to looking to stop any further sales, Beyonce’s lawsuit seeks unspecified damages.
