  • Their Kendall + Kylie brand was accused in June of not paying garment suppliers for orders in February and March

Kendall and Kylie Jenner are speaking out over claims that their Kendall + Kylie fashion brand has not been paying factory workers in Bangladesh.

The sisters’ brand released a joint statement through the Kendall + Kylie Instagram on Thursday evening, explaining the brand has ‘no relationship’ with the company accused of failing to pay.

‘We would like to address the unfortunate and incorrect rumor that Global Brands Group owns the Kendall + Kylie brand and that we have neglected to pay factory workers in Bangladesh as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,’ the statement begins. 

The accusation first surfaced on ReMake and later on the Diet Prada Instagram account, claiming that fashion conglomerate Global Brands Group wasn’t paying workers.

While GBG listed the Jenner’s clothing line on their site, the sisters maintained their brand is owned by a completely separate entity.

The original post from Remake claimed that GBG didn’t pay garment suppliers for orders produced in February and March.

After the allegations surfaced again in a Diet Prada Instagram post, a rep for Kendall + Kylie denied the claims to Teen Vogue

‘The Kendall + Kylie brand is owned by Canada Inc. The brand does not produce in Bangladesh. So [these allegations are] not accurate,’ the rep said.
