Tyga's 'Wavy Baby' Sneaker Collab Gets Hit With Lawsuit By Vans Then Sells Out Within Ten Minutes

Tyga has yet another lawsuit on his hands, and this time around it’s with Vans. According to Hypebeast, the rapper teamed up with sneaker brand MSCHF for their “Wavy Baby” sneakers. However, the collaboration has now backfired as Vans has filed a lawsuit against the creative duo for “trademark infringement, false designation of origin and unfair competition, in addition to trademark dilution.” “MSCHF, in collaboration with Mr. Stevenson, has shamelessly marketed the Wavy Baby shoe in a direct effort to confuse consumers, unlawfully siphon sales from Vans, and intentionally damage Vans’ valuable intellectual property rights,” the lawsuit stated, Hypebeast reports. “The Wavy Baby shoe blatantly and unmistakably incorporates Vans’ iconic trademarks and trade dress.” Even with the lawsuit on his hands, Tyga went on to share his excitement via Twitter over the sneaker release reportedly selling out within ten minutes.

How Tyga's Surprising Business Ventures Gave Him A $5M Net Worth

Born Michael Ray Nguyen-Stevenson in Los Angeles, CA, Tyga seemed destined for greatness at an early age. Although he initially claimed to have been born & raised in Compton and, later, Gardena, TMZ eventually revealed that the rapper — whose name is an acronym for “Thank You God, Always” — was actually born and raised in the San Fernando Valley, and his parents were relatively well off. Still, it’s not where you come from, but where you’re going. And where Tyga went was straight to the top. He first made his mark in the music industry in 2009, when his music was licensed to the video games “Need for Speed: Undercover” and “Madden NFL 2009.” He even did some work with his cousin, Travie McCoy of Gym Class Heroes.

And while Hip-Hop aficionados may be divided on the quality of his music, they can’t deny...
