Beyoncé says a woman who has gone to war to block her “Blue Ivy” trademark revealed her true colors by attempting to hash out a deal that would require the singer to purchase her wedding planning business for millions of dollars.
According to documents obtained by The Blast, Bey’s legal team claims shortly after Veronica Morales opposed the trademark filing for “Blue Ivy Carter,” a meeting was set up between the two parties to try and settle the claim. However, they say the meeting turned out to be a “business proposal” for Morales to try and offload her company in exchange for dropping the trademark opposition.
Bey’s team says during the meeting, Morales’ counsel “gave a long speech” about treating the opposition as an “opportunity for a business relationship rather than an adversarial proceeding.” They say Morales put together a Power Point presentation to show why Beyoncé should acquire her wedding planning business AND her “Blue Ivy” trademark and then they could combine forces and “begin producing products and goods” with Bey attached. Morales allegedly offered a bundle deal for $10 million.
Beyoncé and her team took a hard pass and now they want Morales and her lawyers to turn over all evidence of the sales pitch, including the Power Point presentation, to prove their position that the entire battle for the trademark is just a grab at money.
