Kendall and Kylie Jenner's brand has released a statement in response to the copyright infringement lawsuit filed against them, Page Six reports. The Kendall + Kylie brand calls the lawsuit by commercial photographer Michael Miller "baseless" and claims they only sold two of the T-shirts featuring his images of rapper Tupac Shakur. The statement claims that Kendall + Kylie bought the images from a company that had a valid license to sell them.

"The allegations made are completely false and its lawsuit is baseless," the statement said. "There has been no infringement or violation of anyone's rights."

According to the Associated Press, photographer Michael Miller, who took the photos of Tupac that appeared on the T-shirts, sued the Jenner sisters for copyright infringement in Los Angeles federal court on Friday. His suit states that Kendall and Kylie never sought permission to use the images.

Miller isn't the only one upset by the T-shirt line. People reports that The Doors have issued a cease and desist letter. Notorious B.I.G.'s mom, Voletta Wallace has also expressed her disappointment in an Instagram post.
