Melissa Molinaro has had a 'crazy week' (thanks, Kim Kardashian)
Melissa Molinaro, the woman who stars in the Old Navy ad campaign that sparked a lawsuit this week from Kim Kardashian, is having a bad week.
"I had a night mare last night...so scary :( wanted to run into my parents room like when I was little," she said Friday on Twitter, adding later, "I say I had a bad dream. And u guys just know what about...w out me saying. Its been a crazy week I can't wait for this all to be over :( "
This from the woman who back in February was calling the Kardashian comparisons flattering -- and who's rumored to be dating Kardashian ex Reggie Bush.
Kardashian filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Old Navy and its parent company, Gap, alleging illegal use of her public image in the campaign starring Molinaro. She was not named as a defendant, incidentally, but had expressed her disbelief to a friend via Twitter.
"Were still talking about this?!," she wrote. "Its JULY this aired in February...some people have too much time on there hands."
Kardashian, meanwhile, is "a businesswoman who has to protect her brand" rather than allowing another company to use it to sell clothes, an insider told Us Magazine. "Bottom line."
The silver lining for Molinaro? Her "Dance Floor" music video on YouTube had more than 400,000 views by Friday. Check it out, below.
