5. Kris Jenner, because she's being sued over "Proud Mama."

Kris Jenner, revered acknowledged matriarch of the Kardashians and all associated hashtags, has been in the news in the past week for her attempts to copyright the hashtag, phrase and concept of "Proud Mama." As she sees it, it's an indispensable part of her brand, and any other mother in the world expressing pride threatens that.

There's just one problem—she's not the only proud mama out there. In fact, there's a jewelry company called Proud Mama, and they're none too happy with her. Owned by Jenny Present, the company has held the copyright on that name since 2009, when Keeping Up with the Kardashians was just a trendy cable TV reality show and not yet an unstoppable global media juggernaut with its own private military force (Editor's note: that last part was made up).
