Hollywood Dirt: Katy Perry Gets Her Name Back, Beyonce Trademarks Blue Ivy Name & More
RUMOR CONFIRMED - RUSSELL BRAND DOES NOT WANT SPOUSAL SUPPORT: Word on the street yesterday was that RUSSELL BRAND wasn't going to ask for any of the money he is entitled to from KATY PERRY ... and from the looks of the documents filed, the rumor is indeed confirmed.
The papers also show that Katy has chosen to restore her maiden name, Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson. And this is how amicable the divorce is ... Kathy signed her name with a smiley face.
JAY-Z AND BEYONCE TRADEMARK BLUE IVY'S NAME: JAY-Z and BEYONCE are making sure no one cashes in on their baby’s good name by reportedly trademarking their daughter's name. The Washington Post reports the couple filed multiple applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for various trademarks of Blue Ivy's name just days after her birth. The trademark ,if granted, will reserve her name for future use of items like "baby carriages, baby cosmetics and diaper bags."
Two incidents of someone looking to profit off of the couple’s bundle of joy have already happened. One fashion designer submitted an application to trademark "Blue Ivy Carter NYC" on Jan. 11, then on Jan. 20, another application for "Blue Ivy Carter Glory IV" was submitted, this time to be used to sell a line of fragrances. Both filings have since been denied.
Meanwhile … Bey made another post-baby appearance – this time wearing a lot of blue stuff, which I guess is supposed to remind us that she just had Blue Ivy™ a few weeks ago, and rub her post-baby body in our fat faces.
