Vogue Magazine has filed a lawsuit against Drake and 21 Savage over their hot new album, “Her Loss”, which they promoted with fake covers.
In court documents obtained by TMZ, Drake and 21 were accused of promoting “Her Loss” by posing on what certainly looks like a legit Vogue cover, leading fans to believe the company would drop the special edition soon (some media outlets even reported on the issue).
Though Drake gave the brand and editor-in-chief Anna Wintour a shout-out online, Condé Nast, which owns Vogue, insisted that they did not endorse “Her Loss” in any way.
They also revealed that they’ve asked multiple times for all promos using the Vogue name to be taken down, but nothing’s been done.
The Magazine alleged that the rappers falsely promoted the Vogue collab on social media, and put up posters of the “cover” in major cities.
Drake and 21’s team were also accused of sending out email blast about “celebrating Drake’s Vogue cover”, and also claiming that street teams across the country would even be handing out copies.
People on the streets allegedly got their hands on the false mags, according to the legal documents and many claim it’s a direct replica of Vogue, even including a fake pic of Anna posing with Drake.
Condé Nast wants the judge to shut down the use of the Vogue mark immediately and it wants at least $4M in damages.
