Selena Gomez sues gaming company for using her likeness

Selena Gomez has filed a lawsuit of $10 million against the software and technology firms behind Clothes Forever – Styling Game, alleging that one of their game characters is based on her.

The beautiful actor and singer Selena Gomez alleges that one of the game characters is based on her, and that she has never allowed any mobile game to use her likeness.

The Law suit stated “Defendants never requested, consulted, or informed Gomez regarding the use of any of her publicity rights in connection with the game. Nor, if asked, would Gomez have consented to such use for the Game, which apparently relies on the unsavory practice of luring its users to make in-game purchases in amounts as much as $99.99 to fund imaginary spending in the game and unlock features.”

The copy right of the game belongs to the China-based seller of the game, as well as MutantBox Interactive Limited, the British company.

The law suit further states that Selena has “carefully curated all endorsements and business opportunities” in a way that advances her goals and her image as a role model for youth.

The suit called the mobile game named “Clothes Forever — Styling Game” a “bug-riddled” game and that it is “rated a measly 3.5 stars out of 5” by reviewers in the App Store.

It is to be noted that the game is available in Apple’s App Store for download which has allowed its users to l go on virtual shopping trips with celebrities and buy “diamonds” for prices ranging from $.99 up to $99.99.
