The wedding planner trying to block Beyonce’s attempts to trademark the name Blue Ivy Carter, allegedly tried to do a million dollar deal with the star for the fights to her business.
Beyonce has claimed a wedding planner blocking her bid to trademark her daughter’s name tried to sell her the rights for $10 million dollars.
The hitmaker is currently locked in a legal battle to trademark ‘Blue Ivy Carter’, the name of her and Jay-Z’s eldest child, but Veronica Morales, who owns a wedding planning business called Blue Ivy has opposed the filing.
And now, legal representatives for the star – who, as well as five-year-old Blue Ivy, also has twins Rumi and Sir, seven months, with her spouse – have claimed Morales tried to sell her company to the singer in a multimillion-dollar-deal.
Documents obtained by The Blast explained that, shortly after Morales opposed Beyonce’s trademark filing, a meeting was set up between the two parties to try and reach a settlement.
They claimed the meeting became a “business proposal”, with Morales’ lawyer giving a “long speech”, about the situation being an “opportunity for a business relationship rather than an adversarial proceeding.”
Morales is said to have put together a PowerPoint presentation stating why Beyonce should buy her wedding planning business, along with the Blue Ivy trademark, and together they could “begin producing products and goods”.
A package deal was allegedly offered for $10 million.
Beyonce’s legal team are now demanding the presentation be handed over as evidence that Morales’ trademark opposition is purely a money-making scheme.
