Kanye West might be heading to court and it is not for his divorce with Kim Kardashian!
Walmart is possibly taking Kanye West court after the company has filed a complaint with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office last week.
The reason behind their complaint is that Kanye's proposed new trademark for his Yeezy brand resembles Walmart’s well-known, sun-like trademark symbol.

Walmart is claiming that Kanye's proposed trademark “is likely to cause confusion and lead to consumer deception.”
Walmart, Inc. has used their sun-like trademark since 2007.
Yeezy, on the other hand, debuted back in 2015 as a collaboration with Adidas, and Kanye West‘s brand has been noteworthy on account of its popular shoes and clothing styles.
