Melissa Molinaro, in response to the lawsuit against Old Navy Commercial by Kim Kardahian accusing the company of using a look-alike, says the reality star has "too much time" on her hands. Molinaro responds especially as the look-alike is Melissa Molinaro herself.
This 29 years old Canadian pop singer, actress, choreographer and model wrote on twitter on wednesday, "We're still talking about this?! Its JULY this aired in February... some people have too much time on their hands,"
Molinaro immediately drew comparisons to Kardashian following the commercial's original February 2011 airing. She has also been dating Kardashian's ex-boyfriend, football player Reggie Bush for several months. Kardashian dated Bush on and off between 2007 and 2010.
Molinaro received much support from her Twitter followers and the singer wrote, "What a day...One thing I do know...I'm blown away by all your support. I feel really blessed to have an amazing family & friends like you!"
Kim Kardashian filed the federal lawsuit against Old Navy over their "Super C-U-T-E" commercial on July 20, accusing the company of misappropriating the reality star's likeness and persona to promote Old Navy products. According to the statement, "Old Navy used Kardashian's likeness in the form of a celebrity look-alike, and styled the infringing ads to evoke Kardashian's identity and persona."
Molinaro originally said that the comparison was flattering and complimented her reality star doppelganger.
"To me, it's extremely flattering," Molinaro told E! News about the Kardashian comparisons in February. "She is a beautiful woman in her own right. You know, I'm flattered. That's an amazing compliment."
Molinaro has appeared on shows like "Making the Band 3" and "The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll." She also starred in "Honey 2," the straight to DVD sequel to "Honey," which starred Jessica Alba.
Molinaro's first single, "Dance Floor" had 346,448 views on YouTube at press time. According to the Hollywood Reporter, she is currently recording her debut pop album.
