A commercial photographer reportedly sued Kylie and Kendall Jenner over the use of three of his pictures of Pink Floyd and Black Sabbath that were used on shirts the reality TV stars sold for $135 apiece.

Photographer Michael Miller said in a statement to Daily Mail that the Jenner sisters had used his photos without any permission. So, he sued them in a federal court on Saturday for copyright infringement over the dresses that featured their designs or likeness superimposed over pictures of popular musicians. Michael’s suit states Kendall and Kylie Jenner did not bother to seek his permission before using his photographs.

Miller files lawsuit against the Jenner sisters for copyright infringement

According to Michael Miller, the 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' stars sold some of his photos under their 'Kendall + Kylie' brand.

Vulture revealed that the complaint submitted by Michael's attorney, Alan Burroughs, stated that Kendall and Kylie did not seek his permission before using his photographs. The 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' sisters exploited at least four original pictures of Tupac Shakur, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, and The Notorious B.I.G. They were better to seek permission of Michael Miller before using his photos.

The photographer reportedly registered the pictures in question with the United States Copyright Office before the alleged infringement.

His body of work includes photographs of top celebrities and musicians, such as Tupac Shakur, Jack Nicholson, Angelina Jolie, Eazy E, Brad Pitt and others. Also, there are copyright images of brands like Puma and Ferrari.

They admit their mistake

The vintage shirts, which retailed at $125 each on the official website before being taken down, had a logo layered over pictures of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G.

Later on, Kendall and Kylie issued a statement, apologizing for the problem.

"The brand would like to apologize to the artists that were featured in the T-shirt series," Kendall said in a statement to Vulture. According to Kendall, she did not mean to disrespect anyone and understand that she has missed the mark completely.

Kylie and Kendall also admitted that they used Michael’s photographs without his permission.

They make public outing

Kendall and Kylie Jenner made their first public outing at Wireless Festival after T-shirt backlash. They were there to support their partner Travis Scott, who was performing at the festival last night. It marks the 'Keeping up with the Kardashians' stars' first public outing since the T-shirt backlash. We wish them good luck and want the Jenner sisters to be careful in future.
