Reese Witherspoon’s lifestyle firm has been slapped with a USD 5 million copyright and trademark infringement lawsuit by a designer.

Jewellery designer Jordann Weingartner, creator of the Magnolia Collection, has accused the Oscar-winner’s company, Draper James, of copyright and trademark infringement, saying her company is using a nearly identical flower-shape design as its trademark and logo, reported Fox news.

“She literally stole my magnolia,” Weingartner accused.

“I drew the design for my Magnolia Collection back in 2008. The flower isn’t a traditional magnolia flower, it is my artistic take on a magnolia. My design actually looks nothing like a magnolia, and Draper James not only took the design, but also decided to call it a magnolia,” Weingartner alleged.

Witherspoon’s publicists and her lawyer did not respond to my calls for comment.
