Madonna sued for Material Girl

A clothing company has filed a lawsuit against Madonna that says the pop megastar’s fashion line for teens, Material Girl, is infringing on its brand.

Reuters reports that L.A. Triumph says in court documents that it has been selling clothing under the same name since 1997, and that the singer — who, for the record, has been dubbed the Material Girl since 1985 — does not “have the right to trade in the same space under this brand.” The suit was filed Thursday in California District Court. Madonna has yet to comment on the matter, nor have reps for Macy’s, the department store where Material Girl apparel is sold. Madonna designed the ’80s-reminiscent line with her 13-year-old daughter Lourdes.
