The Queen said what she said!
Beyoncé reportedly is refusing to hand over the text message records between her and JAY-Z, as well as her mom Tina Knowles. The records are being requested in the trademark dispute over her daughter Blue Ivy’s name.
Veronica Morales, is suing Bey and has asked for “a list of documents and communications” to prove what she claims is true, that the singer planned to utilize the Blue Ivy trademark. The tea is, Morales is a wedding planner who’s business share’s the same name as the Carter’s daughter. Morales is claiming her company existed before Beyonce’s daughter did.
In 2017, Beyoncé sought to trademark exclusive use of her daughter’s name. Beyonce says that Morales later tried to sell the name to the Carters for $10 million. The offer allegedly was complete with an entire PowerPoint presentation and plans for merchandising. Ummm—can you say doing THE MOST?! Morales denies these claims.
Beyoncé’s legal team has reportedly not coughed up the documents at this time and don’t plan on it. They have also asked the judge for a protective order that would block Morales from leaking any confidential info about the couple. Whew chile! You know the Carter’s are private AF so my money is on the Queen!
