Update-Kim Kardashian suing Old Navy over Reggie Bush’s new girlfriend, Melissa Molinaro?! Maybe it’s not that simple – we hope – Kim K is certainly filing suit against Old Navy because they used Reggie Bush’s girlfriend Melissa Molinaro in their recent commercial. But it’s less because of a lover’s scorn and more business related 😉 . Kim Kardashian and the remaining family is a $65 million brand that they must protect at all cost! The suit is alleging that Old Navy used a Kim look-alike Molinaro in an effort to intentionally mislead the public.
The commercials begins something like a music video where actress Melissa Molinaro plays the role of a celebrity, fashionista by the name of “Super Suzie”, who is hounded by the paparazzi wherever she goes. I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember the last time I was chased by paparazzi because I was sporting a pair of Old Navy Khakis. I didn’t even realize this commercial was selling clothes until the last three seconds.
TMZ reports that Kim is particularly upset Old Navy has also launched a twitter campaign in an attempt to further siphon her fame.
One of the tweets read;
“@CBSNEWS reports that Old Navy’s Super Cute star look like @kimkardashian. #LOL. What do you think?”
It looks like Old Navy’s bold move has backfired as Kim is seeking somewhere between $15 and $20 Million.

The further clarify that this isn’t an ex out for revenge, a source added that Kim is more concern about ruining her relationship with Sears. “It could ruin her relationship with Sears if she’s affiliated with Old Navy. To protect her image, she had to file a lawsuit. She doesn’t even mention Melissa in the lawsuit. He name is not even in it. The commercial came out in February and Old Navy was tweeting that she looked ‘just like Kim K!'”
