Kylie Minogue finally reflects on the trademark battle with Kylie Jenner

When in 2014, Kylie Jenner filed paperwork to trademark the name, "Kylie," which prompted singer Kylie Minogue to get the claim rejected after her team filed an opposition. Now, the Can't Get You of My Head singer is speaking out about the legal battle almost five years after it came to an end. The claim was officially rejected in 2017. "It was, just business obviously," Minogue said during the June 7 episode of Watch What Happens Live. "When I was named Kylie, I think I had met one person older than me who was called Kylie, so [it was] kind of unusual. I've spent a lifetime protecting my brand and building my brand, so it was just something that had to be done. We came to an agreement." In February 2016, Minogue filed an opposition to keep the then 18-year-old Life of Kylie star from claiming ownership of the "Kylie" name in the United States. Per Minogue's notice of opposition – she has been active in the entertainment industry since 1979 and known by her first name since her first album, Kylie, was released in 1988.
