The 41-year-old reality star – who founded the shapewear brand back in 2019 – is reportedly being taken to court by a woman called Noelle Smith, who alleges that she "incurred expenses for medical care" and slammed the company for failing to be reasonable and seek to design body tape that doesn't rip off the user's skin.

Legal documents obtained by The Blast read: "When manufacturers do not make their products safe as is technologically and economically feasible and someone is hurt, they are responsible for the harm." After releasing the body tape to the public, consumers started lodging public complaints about the product damaging their skin.
However, just hours after the lawsuit was filed, The Kardashians star explained through a representative that she believed the product in question to be a "fake" version of her SKIMS tape when it emerged that Smith made the purchase on Amazon, where the genuine SKIMS tape is not sold.
