  • Update: Fake Rick Ross LV Shades Confirmed by Louis Vuitton

    A few months ago we did a post on Rick Ross’ fake Louis Vuitton shades, the same sunglasses that were featured on the cover of XXL Magazine. Well it seems as though Louis Vuitton wasn’t all too happy about the fakes. RapRadar reports that Louis Vuitton’s lawyers sent XXL Magazine a message expressing their own disappointment. For those of you out there that didn’t believe that these were fake, well your proof is below…they’re 100% fake. Come on people just buy the real deal, don’t go and make your own, that’s just tacky.

    Dear Editor:

    We were dismayed to see the cover of the May 2009 issue of XXL Magazine, which features a photo of Rick Ross wearing a pair of sunglasses prominently featuring counterfeit Louis Vuitton trademarks. Because the photo has generated considerable confusion among your readers and Louis Vuitton customers among others, we feel it is important to clarify several points.

    The first is that the sunglasses Mr. Ross is wearing were not made by Louis Vuitton, and in fact, are counterfeit. Louis Vuitton did not grant permission to Mr. Ross or to whoever did make the sunglasses to use our trademarks.

    The second is that no affiliation, sponsorship or association exists between Rick Ross or XXL and Louis Vuitton.

    The third is that counterfeiting is illegal. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to correct the confusion.
