Emma Stone is an international celebrity, with a vast empire spanning from her own hairdo business to hairdos for fashion shows, fashion magazines and clothing lines.
She has been seen in more than 200 countries, with her hairdyling career including the launch of her own collection, Emma Stone Hairs, in 2014.
But her latest venture, Emma’s Mobile, is the subject of a legal battle.
The clothing and hairlines company, based in Singapore, is owned by the former Miss Universe winner, who is suing the Australian-based hairdresses company for “malicious and wrongful” conduct, according to reports in The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph.
“Emma Stone’s business has been the subject to significant delays and has seen its growth significantly slowed in recent months,” Emma Stone, the company’s founder and chief executive, told the Financial Review.
“She was not aware of the nature of her legal action and has not provided any information to explain why her legal process has been delayed or to give us a date of the commencement of this legal process.”
Ms Stone, 51, is suing Miss Universe competitor Kim Kardashian West for allegedly infringing her copyright.
“It is our contention that the Defendant Kim Kardashian is liable for copyright infringement under copyright law,” Ms Stone wrote in her filing.
“This is due to Defendant Kim’s use of Emma Stone in her own commercial ventures.”
Miss Universe contestants are not allowed to use any of Ms Stone’s designs or images without permission from her.
In the wake of the legal battle, Ms Stone has also faced a slew of criticism from other celebrities.
One such is Kim Kardashian, who tweeted: “I was not surprised to see @EmmaStoneHair going down.
I would never use her designs.”
The other celebrity to tweet about Ms Stone was Kim Kardashian’s son, North West, who posted a picture of his own hairstyle and captioned it, “I know it’s hard for you to believe, but I’m not surprised.
That’s how my dad looks.”
A representative for Miss Universe told ABC News that Miss Stone “never used any of Emma’s designs.”
“Ms Stone’s design is a unique and iconic representation of the Miss Universe Organization’s iconic look,” the spokesperson said.
“Ms. Stone has never been involved in any of the production or marketing of Miss Universe’s products.”
Ms Stones lawyer, Andrew Cawthorne, told The Sunday Telegraph that the company is currently working with “the relevant authorities to secure a resolution to this matter”.
“Emmies business is in its final stages and Ms Stone is not aware if there is any further court action to be had,” Mr Cawdrethorne said.
Ms Cawrethorne is also in the process of negotiating a deal with a number of celebrities. “
Any claims relating to any of these products are without merit and should be ignored.”

The Daily Mail reported that a group of celebrities have formed a group to launch a lawsuit against Ms Stone for copyright infringements.
“I think she’s overreacting, but she’s not the only celebrity who has had a problem with the Emma Stone brand,” one of the group told the newspaper.
Ms Hill said the celebrities are not being bullied into silence. “
Hopefully we’ll be able to win.”

“The problem is, it’s a situation that’s been going on for years, it is a brand that has become so ingrained into our society that there is an expectation of them,” she said.
