It’s definitely a well known thing among Swifties, that Taylor Swift’s favorite number is 13. Not only that, but the number has played a big role in her life. She claims it’s her lucky number, but now, it’s not bringing her too much luck. The songstress is being sued over her love for the number 13.
An Orange County apparel company called Lucky 13 is accusing Taylor of trademark infringement, and they filed a lawsuit early this morning, reports E! Online. Apparently she’s used the phrase ‘Lucky 13′ on t-shirts that she sells in her online store and the owner of Lucky 13 apparel wants her to stop immediately. That doesn’t seem so bad right? Well, it doesn’t stop there. The owner also wants her online store shut down and is looking for all the mola she’s made from the shirts, or damages paid to the company; whichever adds up to more. The lawsuit claims that Taylor used the company’s federally registered trademarks without authorization.
The Lucky 13 owner describes Taylor as a “tatted up singer who likes ‘fast cars and dangerous men who drive them inappropriately”. He also claims her video for “I Knew You Were Trouble” could very easily be mistaken as an ad for Lucky 13 because it “depicts stylish, attractive, tattooed individuals in provocative situations.” I don’t know if you know this Mr. Owner-Man, but Taylor doesn’t have any tattoos.
Taylor has always been very vocal about her love for the number. She was born on the 13th, she turned 13 on Friday the 13th, her Twitter handle incorporates the number 13, her first album went #1 in 13 weeks, her first #1 song had a 13 second intro, her management company is called 13 Management, and for a long time she wrote ’13’ on her hand before all her shows. The list really goes on and on and on.
Hopefully Taylor and her people can get this lawsuit resolved quickly, and she can get back to her love of the number 13.
