There can never be one Kylie, and even if there is, it’s Kylie Minogue.

Kylie Minogue Jenner trademark

Australian pop star Kylie Minogue won over Kylie Jenner’s team in the lawsuit over the trademark of their shared name, Kylie.

News reports said that the US Patent and Trademark Office has rejected the young Kardashian’s attempt to register “Kylie” as a trademark in the United States.

Kylie Jenner’s team filed an application seeking to trademark the name “Kylie” for advertisement and endorsement services in 2014. But Kylie Minogue quickly filed an opposition notice, saying that the approval of Jenner’s application would cause damage and “confusion to her brand”.

Kylie Minogue, who has been performing as “Kylie” long before the youngest Kardashian was born, owns the trademark “Kylie” over entertainment and recording services, as well as for fragrances, furniture, and clothes and other merchandise. The Aussie star has also owned the website,, since 1996.

Not one to shy away from fangs, Minogue’s legal team also noted that the singer is “internationally renowned performing artist, humanitarian and breast cancer activist” who already owns Kylie-related trademarks in the US, while Jenner is “a secondary reality television personality who appeared on the television series Keeping Up With the Kardashians as a supporting character.”

According to Billboard:

Minogue has sold more than 65 million albums over her career, and won Brit Awards, Grammys and in 2007 she became the first-ever woman (and first foreigner) to receive Britain’s prestigious Music Industry Trusts’ Award. In 2011, she was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
