But now Kim Kardashian is apparently threatening to sue, after her image was used to promote plastic surgery in Mexico.
The 32-year-old reality TV star is said to have asked her lawyers to get involved after a billboard for Dr. Victor Ramirez in Mexicali emerged showing her reclining on a sunbed in a bikini which showed off her enviable body.
The billboard was accompanied with the slogan ‘No arriesgue su belleza, ni su salud’, which translates as ‘Don’t risk your beauty or your health’ – a bid to encourage people to visit a professional plastic surgeon instead of an unsafe one.
When Dr Ramirez was contacted by TMZ.com and asked if he had sought Kim’s permission before using the picture, he replied: ‘Obviously I did not speak to Kim Kardashian. I do not have her number.’
After the website told Dr Ramirez that you cannot use somebody’s image on an advert without their permission, he apparently replied that he would get the police involved.

As if she doesn’t already have enough to deal with, Kim Kardashian is now the target of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals organization.
PETA has come up with a new billboard urging her to stop wearing fur. The tagline, “Kim: These babies miss their mother. Is she on your back?” accompanies a picture of Kardashian wearing a fox fur around her neck and another photo of baby foxes in a hole.
Back in August, PETA sent Kim a faux fur for a wedding gift. They explained, “It’s no secret that Kim has a penchant for wearing fur, but we’re hoping that this elegant velvet-lined throw – the same style that is used at premier resorts – will help convince the future Ms. Humphries to say ‘I do!’ to being kind to animals.”
PETA VP Lisa Lange released a statement, saying, “Kim knows that animals on fur farms are beaten, electrocuted, and often skinned alive. We’ve explained it to her, and she’s watched a video expose that was filmed inside fur farms. When Kim is ready to put an end to her relationship with fur, PETA will be happy to take her discards and donate them to the homeless.”
